malaysiakini and the GREAT FLIP-FLOP on ENGLISH

There we go again!
According to this malaysiakini article, we are going back to the past.
After 6 years, the government admits that it has not done enough to make the policy work and now conveniently blames the inadequacy of teachers who are not able to teach in the subjects.
In my opinion, if the government cannot even implement such a changeover successfully, how are earth will they plan and implement the much promoted nuclear power plant operation?
Since 2003 precious little has been done by the authorities to upgrade the quality of teachers so that all our children can benefit.
Now they are being subjected to another round of education flip-flop. You mean our DPM went abroad to UNESCO to give credence to this decision? All my children have graduated or I would have started a protest against the education ministry.
In my opinion, we should let the PTAs decide on this language policy - I am sure the teachers and parents can make a better decision for the sake of the children.
