I am really saddened and frustrated over the govt.'s decision on the PPSMI issue. What a waste of money and energy! They simply throw everything out. And the most ridiculous thing is to have 7 periods of english lesson for each class. So, what does that mean? For single session schools that would be okay. Well, they have no problem to put those extra periods in their timetable. But what about my school? All other double session schools in this country? Yes, we do exist. Where to fit in those extra hours? We dont have enough classrooms to do any extra teaching! I really hope they will really send English teachers soon cos i dont think our school is ready to implement this new development without them. English lab, what a brilliant idea. That involves a lot of money. What will happen to all those PPSMI laptops, coursewares, textbooks?
