As reported in the news, the school is required to run two systems concurrently, SPM and UEC.
It means it will be measured by both results, most likely SPM by the government and UEC by the DJZ. I think this system is not going to work due to the following reasons:
1. Only a small percentage of Chinese School graduates excel in both BM and Chinese, good enough to conduct teaching in both languages. Of this small percentage, probably only a fraction is interested in teaching. Probably a small fraction of this fraction is willing to go to Kuantan. This small group of people would not be enough to cover all classes in the school.
2. If the teaching were to be done by two different groups of teachers – one group for UEC, another group for SPM, it will be too costly to run the school. History has proved that there will not be sufficient fund.
3. Not all students are capable of learning in both languages. A lot of them are weak in BM, that’s why they prefer Chinese school. To force the students to learn in a language they have no interest in will kill their learning desire.
4. At the moment, only students who can afford the time and has the learning capability sit for SPM. These people may have to work harder but they will not be overly stressed because they are doing something within their capability. If all students have to sit for the exams , many of them will be over stress and may suffer mental problem.
I do not think the school will be successfully run by DJZ. In my opinion, since the politician and the Chinese Commerce Association wants to have a hand in this school, DJZ should leave the school to MCA, run it like TARC or UTAR. DJZ should concentrate on what they do best.
