This petition is to set up an independent education commission which will be led by a group comprising of education experts, academicians and relevant professional authorities. Based on the history of Malaysian education system, almost every minister wants to make changes regarding the education system. As a result, this has prompted major changes in the curriculum and assessment systems conducted in schools.For example, in our secondary school education system, science and mathematics were taught in English however in 2009 the government decided to revert to Bahasa Malaysia,effective 2012 onward. These major changes had raised up several issues in every level of the education system such as from adding workload to the ministry of education officers to the struggle of teachers changing and adapting to the new way of teaching.
However, the most concerning part is still the part where our future hopefuls of the country is affected by these changes! The reason is because the frequent changes of the education system leads to confusion and added stress to their learning process, causing them to not able to have a good grasp of fundamental knowledge since the beginning. Students might be lost and confused in the languages changes instead of focusing on the real topics and concepts in their studies. Some students may fail to adapt to the changes and gave up on their education. As time goes by, the accumulated effect will result in more incompetent graduates struggling in the real world, regardless locally or internationally. Hence,in order to avoid the frequent and major changes in our education system,there might be a need to set up an independent education commission to supervise and regulate our education system to ensure it is always up to date,stable and in synchrony with recent needs and advances globally.
In conclusion, we hope that our humble request through this petition would be heard by the new government and ministry of education.We also hope this idea could be brought up to the parliament some day to be discussed and hopefully implemented possibly in the near future.
