Note: this posting first appeared as a comment in Sekolah Kebangsaan were sekolah Melayu. I think it merits a dedicated forum.
Should vernacular schools be allowed to exist? It is a right enshrined in the constitution so insist the proponents of vernacular schools.
Just thinking outside the box hoping I would provoke many educationists, chauvinists and non-chauvinist alike: we should have SRJK (melayu)
If Malays want to exercise their rights, should there be Malay schools for Malays and Malaysians who want to retain their rights and Malayness ? The Malay educationist would be free to promote the Malay agenda.
Strategically Sekolah kebangsaan now becomes the cradle of Malaysian Malaysia.
I think we should encourage SRJK(melayu). That would leave sekolah kebangsaan to promote and to focus on the Malaysian Malaysia concept. Then we would be able to know, what Malaysian Malaysia concept is all about and allow the communities to walk the talk.
What are your thoughts?
