Before you begin,let me assure you this post has nothing to do with the prophecy of 2012's doomsday but this fear of 2012 is personal as far as i, Jovial and the whole education system is concerned,,, i make it quick.
I was chatting with Jovial the other day, as we went along, he shared with me about a fear, a certain kind of fear which i could feel for him and the many of the students at large.
He said he was kind of fearful for year 2012,that's when the subjects of Science and Mathematics will be revert to Malay, after years he had found joy and fondness in mastering these two subjects in English but now my boy will have to brace himself for another challenge.
As a parent, i am sure i cannot tell him about how stupid the gomen could be in implementing something then abolishing it in a jiffy, and how the decision was made because certain quarters was yelling," English will erode the supremacy of our own Language.
Therefore i took the approach of "the road less travaled" by saying," Jo, don't worry about it, i have faith in you and i am sure you can master Malay as good as you mastered your English, at least you don't have to start with A a, Ba. Ba. Ca.ca, right and you can prove to THEM that you are a survivor? i gave him a hug and deep inside of me, i was worried.
