On the 3rd December 2006, the Minister of Education, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein announced a budget of RM709 million to build up to 15 new Maktab Rendah Sains Malaysia (MRSMs) and more for upgrades and repairs of existing MRSMs. This announcement actually exceeds the RM90 million announced in the 9th Malaysia Plan (9MP) to build 2 new MRSMs as well as upgrade of existing facilities.

Frankly it's a real waste of money. The education system in our country is going down the drain. I really laughed my head off when I heard that there are objective questions for Additional Maths in Form 5 and that students are allowed to use calculators for exams even in PMR. Currently the mechanics taught in first year of university are equivalent to the Form 5 stardard of my time.
Both my neighbours daughters who were top students in school and got A1 for Additional Maths needed additional coaching when they went for their studies in Australia.
For parents out there. If possible do home tuition yourself. Even tuition teachers teach only what is needed and if your child is doing good in school it does not mean that they are able to cope especially for those who plan to send your kids abroad.
Sigh.....the good old days. :(

If everything also privatized then, do we still need to pay TAX??

while these schools are having the luxury of space and facilities, other schools are out of teachers, out of space, out of classrooms.

I suppose they still have not got it up their thick heads that it is not the facilities that makes students good. They can carry on building their maktabs and whatever else and the results will still be the same.
