    I like this one. Good spirit.

    For those who can afford, or are given the options (remember, there are places like kampung-kampung where no alternative available for the parents who care for their children's education), please go for the best for your children education.

    And we still need to continue helping those stuck in national schools as much we can. For me, with the recent rejection of top notch STPM students in local uni, I am thankful for those who fight for Chinese Private schools 独中 and also those homeschool center. Else we will lose more talented people like the Pen Drive father. And I salute those parents who has opted for homeschooling, teaching their children themselves. It takes a lot of commitment.

    I am thinking may be I should start surveying for homeschool centers. My believe, still need to let children go to school and 'mix' around. Keeping them with me the whole time is not so good also.

    If you want to know more, PM me or email me ...

    For parents who are considering home-schooling, please take note that THERE IS NO WAY BACK to the public education system once you opt out ... just as hard as it is to opt out, it is just as hard to get back esp if you are a Malaysian.

    So, DO THINK CAREFULLY ... it sounds great but it is a LONG JOURNEY all the way until "A" Levels and university.

    If you can afford it, private schooling is a SAFER OPTION, which you can always join, so long as you have the $$$.

    I know a few parents who home-schooled for primary levels but later on enrolled into the private school system. So, if you are thinking of similar route, please be prepared and do so with your eyes WIDE OPEN , do consider all the risks and financial aspects.

    The children will also NO LONGER QUALIFY for any Malaysian scholarships and local universities.

    NOTE: I am not pro- nor against- home schooling as every parent and child have their own different situation. So, they will have to assess for their own individual cases.

    Ya, you are right.

    For Private school... like for me, must have enough $$$ in case either one of us is out of job, we must be able to fork out the money. If cannot fork out the money, mm.. no way to get back in to national school (assuming I am taking international syllabus in private school). mm.. then really homeschooling ?? I teach myself ??

    really a lot to think..

    Even myself as a teacher, i need to really think twice about home schooling.......we have to plan ahead...which exam to take....O level A level or whatever not......

    However, we can still take gomen paper as private candidates......

    Really tough, when our MOE is lead by politician.........everything has political agenda behind it. Tainted our education system. Even teachers have no faith in them........

    Thanks for all the sharing/opinions - it helps me think through all the possibilities carefully.
    I think I'll let my girl stay in SRJK until Std 3, after that we really need to think hard to make a decision.

    Don't limit your choices because of government scholarship..

    I will reject all government scholarships for my kid either for local university or overseas studies... if there is a compulsory bond to join the public service.

    The 5-7 years after graduation is the most important time for a person to build a track record. This critical track record cannot be found in Malaysia public service, in my opinion.

    In addition, good universities in overseas offer scholarship based on merits, not financial needs.


    p/s : I don't believe in homeschool.. You need to mix with a diverse group of people, and better mix with a diverse group of smart people in order to stand up among others..

    I agreed that the child must mix around, there's no other better place than school.

    Hi, I am a single mum here and urgently looking for small group homeschool centre for my son.

    He has better concentration when the class is smaller as he slightly shorter attention span than average kids. I have taken him out from his old school and suppose to go to SK USJ 2 that that has less number of students and also nearby our house. Our application approved by Jabatan. However, recently when we went to the new school to submit the approved form, the officer told me they only accept those have scored A or 90 mark and above in Bahasa Melayu subject in all their previous exam. We were shocked to hear that and do not know what to do now.

    We are staying in USJ and hoping to find a small group teacher-student homeschool centre nearby. Please help. Government school starts next week yet I still could not find any school for him.

    Hi Hermagan, sorry to hear about your situation. Also shocked that something like that could happen. Please do appeal to Jabatan and hope that they will find a way for you.

    In the meantime, for homeschool centers, these are a few that I know of in Subang Jaya:

    https://www.facebook.com/klcresources

    First Baptist Church in SS17 are also starting 1 in 2014, pls call them, contact in their website: http://www.fbc.com.my/101209/

    Cempaka (in USJ near Giant Hypermarket area): 03-802401088

    Do note that I have no prior experience with all the above centers as my children are in Chinese primary school. I just got the contacts from friends or from the web.

    Good luck!
