Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 5.8.2013.
39 top students receiving full marks of Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) 4.0 but still not being selected for public university places for their preferred courses is a national shame that will stain the pursuit of merit, excellence and merit as well as cripple the elusive search for national unity after 56 years Of Merdeka. Depriving qualified students, including those with a CGPA of the maximum 4.0 from places in public universities, will only exacerbate the brain drain, make it harder for Talent Corporation to generate a brain gain and make it easier for neighbouring countries to steal our best and brightest.
No democratic and humane country in the world would consider as just in rejecting top students who scored the perfect CGPA of 4.0, but were offered courses that were not their chosen option. Even though MCA, MIC and Gerakan leaders have openly attacked the Ministry of Education(MOE) for this injustice, MOE has clearly dismissed these BN component parties as staging a sandiwara as they did not pull out from BN.
What is the point of MCA pointing out that in the past four years, the enrolment rate of Chinese applicants fell from 92 percent to 88.2 percent, followed by 86.4 percent to only 75 percent this year, or the percentage of successful Chinese applicants entering IPTAs had fallen to 19% this year from the previous 23%, when MCA still remain in BN? What is the point of MIC questioning Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s pledge to uphold his message of “nambikei” (trust) to the Indian community when Indian students were allocated only 4% of public university places of only 1,800 instead of the promised 3,000, when MIC still remain in BN?
DAP does not agree with the annual national obsession on race profiling by both MCA and MIC. Both argue the serious issue of deprivation of university places in education solely from a racial perspective when it should be strictly from equal opportunity, excellence and performance.
As the public has lost confidence in the professionalism of the Education Ministry, an independent body such as an international auditing firm should be appointed instead to vet and select future university applicants to ensure that no qualified students loses out. How can we prepare the young for the future or the future for our young when we deny that future by permitting such painful injustice?

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2013年8月5日在吉隆坡发表声明:
39名考获总平均绩分4.0的优秀生还没有获得国立大学的理想科系,这是国耻,破坏了对绩效、卓越的追求,也破坏了独立56后对国民团结的搜寻。
39名考获总平均绩分4.0的优秀生还没有获得国立大学的理想科系,这是国耻,破坏了对绩效、卓越的追求,也破坏了独立56后对国民团结的搜寻。当 局剥夺合格学生的权利,拒绝那些总平均绩点达4.0的学生进入本地大学,这不只让人才外流恶化,也让人才机构更难吸引人才,也让其它邻近国家更容易地挖走 我们的人才。
世界上没有一个民主及人道国家会考虑拒绝考获总平均绩分4.0的优秀生,给他们非首选科系。就连马华、国大党及民政党领袖也公开批评过教育部的不公义,而教育部也很明显地驳斥这些国阵成员党在演戏,因为他们没有退出国阵。
马华指出今年马来西亚华裔入学率从88.2%降到92%,接着从86.4%降至今年75%,或者说成功被本地大学录取的华裔生只有19%,比去年 23%还少。当马华还留在国阵里,他们说这些有什么用?国大党甚至要求首相纳吉阿都拉萨实现对印度人的承诺,因为印度学生在大学的学额只有4%。今年印度 学生应获得的学额3000个,而不是1800个。但国大学还留在国阵里,他们的呼吁有什么用?
民主行动党不赞成马华公会及国大党每年诉诸种族牌来看待这个课题。他们单从种族角度看待优秀生进不了大学的问题,而事实上我们应该从机会平等、表现及卓越的角度出发。
公众已经对教育部的专业失去信心,我们需要委任独立机构如国际稽查公司来遴选未来的大学申请者,以确保符合学生不会被忽略。当我们继续允许这种惨痛不公义的做法,我们要如何让年轻人为未来做好准备,或者如何为年轻人的未来做准备?

So, Guan Eng thinks daddy is more fit to be DPM



Lim Guan Eng's father would have been Deputy Prime Minister today, in charge also of the powerful Home Ministry, if Pakatan had won the general elections in May. That was the promise of the New Dawn made by Anwar Ibrahim to Lim Kit Siang. Alas, Pakatan lost and with that Guan Eng's dad lost his first, last and only shot at becoming the second most powerful man in Malaysia. Has the older Lim gotten over the disappointment? We thought so, until the jabs at Muhyiddin Yasin, still the DPM, started.

The blogger A Voice, in his latest posting The Art of inciting Racial Hatred (Aug 4), says Lim Guan Eng's latest salvo on Muhyddin (see video), calling him not fit to be DPM based on a news report,  is part of the DAP's strategy to "vilify the successor".
"... when former premier Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was shaken to fall, the opposition picked up a game initiated from deep inside UMNO to create the myth of Scorpene submarine bribery scandal and later accused the Prime Minister's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor for the Altantunya. The whole idea was to go after the incumbent. Nearing his end, the oppositions turn to support Abdullah and went all out for Najib. 
"Are they thinking that it is the end of Najib thus their accelerated attack on Deputy Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and brush him as an ultra Malay and racist? What made them think that Muhyiddin will rise to challenge Najib?"
A Voice is not wrong: this wasn't the first time the Lims have labeled Muhyiddin unfit to be DPM ("Racist" Muhyiddin unfit to be PM: Lim Guan Eng, 20/12/12). Still, I'm not convinced that the most recent attack is not personal in nature and driven by jealousy and spite. i think the son thinks daddy deserves to be the DPM more than Muhyddin.

It has also been a "week of denial" and great pressure for the younger Lim: first the ROS' order to him to conduct fresh party elections followed by that wretched report about declining perception of Penang under his rule. And now it turns out that Muhyiddin didn't even say what Guan Eng had accused him of having said! Did Guan Eng say sorry to the DPM? No, instead he conveniently blamed the media! (Punish NST, Bernama, says Guan Eng, 5/8/13). Not the first time he's done that, either.

PROF KHOO KAY PENG SPEAKS OUT ON WHAT IS TRULY 1  MALAYSIA      

Few  People realise that UiTM that takes in only Bumiputeras including  from Singapore!...has a current enrolment of something like  130,000 students, and it is expected to reach an enrolment of  200,000 by  2013!...in comparison University Malaya has only an enrolment of  23,000  students, and there they are talking about ensuring  that more than 60%+ are Bumiputeras in University of  Malaya.    Do  you know that there is a University Science Islam?...that is also  producing Dentists and doctors(?) as well?? This University is  different from International Islamic University, which is also  producing Doctors and Dentists.    Do  you know that UiTM has more  than 1000 Ph. D. holders on their staff? UiTM now  takes in 200 students for medicine every year!...all Bumiputeras  of course! Selayang and Sg. Buloh Hospitals have become their  Teaching Hospitals.        If  you go to the PNB website and read the Annual report of Amanah  Saham Bumiputera you will realise that that Fund alone has  about 80+  Billion....and compare that with Public Mutual a  subsidiary of Public Bank, the Largest Mutual Fund in this  Country, which runs some 35 Funds or so with a Total Value of only  less than 30  Billion!     Although  they say that there is cap of 200,000 units in ASB...Please read  the Annual Report, carefully, and you will realise that  there are several thousand  Bumiputeras having an Average of about One Million Units in that  Fund...Tax Free, Paying anything from 8+ to 11+ % per  year!...and we are only talking about that one  Fund!...ASNB manages Funds to the Total Value of about 130+  Billion Educate yourself

Intense Brain Drain Problem for Malaysia 

 

 

 

 

 

He believes many more professionals may leave the country.
Read the Full Report from BBC HERE













 Bigger brain drain as Australia relaxes visa policy, Guan Eng warns











Our choices: Emigration, encampment or engagement ― Thomas Fann
















The migrant’s eye — Shaun Tan

 

 

 
Malaysia has a lot going for it. It has much untapped potential. It is devoid of natural disasters and rich in natural resources. It is a country with warm weather, amazing food and hot women. Its people are generally warm, friendly, and (with certain exceptions like yours truly) humble. Pull-factors like these would require considerable push-factors to trigger mass emigration.


But there’s a darker side. A side behind the strained tranquillity and Malaysia Truly Asia adverts. Since its independence in 1957, Malaysia has been run by the Barisan National (BN) party, and its regime is an autocracy that institutionalises racism. Non-Malays, including the ethnic Chinese and Indian minorities, are discriminated against in favour of the majority Malays, whose support BN depends on. Malaysian laws make non-Malays pay higher prices for certain goods and services, allocate them only a small percentage of places in public universities, and impose significant barriers against their advancement in the military, police force, civil service, and in government-owned companies. The BN government persecutes minority religions, and major Malay politicians often refer to Chinese and Indian Malaysians as pendatang (immigrants), of inferior status, while the current Prime Minister Najib Razak is alleged to have threatened to “bathe a keris dagger with Chinese blood”.


The BN government is also very protectionist, making it even more difficult for international companies to set up business there, for example, international law firms can only operate in Malaysia by acting in partnership with a local firm. Furthermore, the BN government is both grossly incompetent and highly corrupt. Billions of dollars in public funds are squandered on cronyism [20] and ill-conceived mega-projects [21], instead of being properly used to develop the country. The judiciary is largely comprised of underqualified yes-men, the police force is unreliable, and the public schools and universities are of low standard, such that even Malaysia’s top university, University Malaya, has dropped out of the top 200 universities in the world on all major rankings. [22]


This is why loving parents tell their children not to come home. They don’t want their children to live as second-class citizens in Malaysia, where their ambitions will be limited by institutional inefficiency, where they will be passed over for promotion in favour of others, not for any lack of skill, but for the colour of their skin. “Money does have a significant role but the most important factor… is opportunity,” outlined Wan Saiful Wan Jan, founding chief executive member of the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs. “Malaysia is too politicised and opportunities are not evenly available to everyone.” [23]


This is why Malaysians flock to Singapore, not because Singapore’s government is less despotic (it is even more so), but because the Singaporean government at least prizes efficiency, and recognises merit regardless of race. When a Malaysian renounces his citizenship, he doesn’t see it as an unpatriotic betrayal, he sees it as washing his hands off a regime that has marginalised and persecuted him. As one Malaysian, Wan Jon Yew, explained: “I’m not proud of being a Malaysian because I think the government doesn’t treat me as a Malaysian.” [24] Migration is beneficial because it increases efficiency; it allows young Malaysians to move to take their best offers, to move to where their ability is truly valued. A mind is a terrible thing to waste, and migration helps to reduce this wastage.


Not all Malaysians mass-emigrating are Chinese and Indians. Many Malays are emigrating too. Although they do not face racial persecution, many of their reasons for doing so are the same as those of non-Malays: the corrupt and inefficient system, the lack of security and religious freedom, the quashing of free expression, human rights abuses. Furthermore, Malays face a different form of religious persecution — forced piety by the overzealous Islamic moral police. Non-Muslim Malays and Malay homosexuals are jailed or sent to “re-education centres” [25], and earlier this year 80 Malays were arrested for celebrating Valentine’s Day [26]. In light of this, Malaysia deserves to lose the talents of its young people. It doesn’t appreciate these talents; it punishes its best citizens — those brave enough to stand up for themselves, or those too principled to fake devotion to a religion they don’t believe in — and instead it rewards its worst elements — the religious extremist, the racist, the snivelling sycophant. In a sense, we as Malaysian citizens deserve to lose the benefits those talents would have brought, because through our participation or collective inaction we allow this wretched state of affairs to continue. Migration is beneficial because it allows Malaysians to leave, and to live in a country that accords them the dignity commensurate with their status as a human being.













The Open Door
The ability to migrate presents young Malaysians with an open door to the rest of the world. This is not without its drawbacks. Many of the Malaysian émigrés leave not because they are weak or cowardly, but because they are ambitious, or because they are uncompromising — they refused to take orders from those who are their inferiors, or to remain party to a system that is morally indefensible. One cannot help but imagine how much good such spirit could have done if they had no choice but to remain in Malaysia. Not necessarily by engaging in overtly political activities, but by simple apolitical acts — by living their lives in their own way, free from compromise, and refusing to curb their ambitions. As Vaclav Havel explained in his book “The Power of the Powerless”, such simple acts are often the most potent weapons against oppressive regimes. Thus, migration has its drawbacks — it makes it harder for Malaysia to achieve real change because it takes away some of its most spirited people.

However there are also many young Malaysians who choose to return, and who seek to bring real change to the country. People like Nathaniel Tan — a Harvard graduate, who writes books exposing the abuses of the BN regime, even if his efforts meet with harassment and detention. Or Alea Nasihin — a friend of mine, and a student at Nottingham University, who resolves to return to work as a human rights lawyer. [27] Or myself. For us the open door is comforting. It gives us the courage to say or do things we might otherwise be wary of. Because it reminds us that there are limits to what an oppressive government can do. Because we know that even if our efforts harm our careers in Malaysia, even if the BN government hounds us and bars us from getting a job at any major company in Malaysia, there will always be many other places eager for our talents. It allows us to take more risks and dare greater things. The open door presented by migration therefore simultaneously hinders and helps the process of change in Malaysia.

A Sarawak Opposition leader has accused the Education Ministry of trying to "hide something" by refusing to disclose the passing marks for Form Five examinations for Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English citing such information falls under the Official Secrets Act.

chong chieng jen interview 141108 02"What is so secret about the passing marks for these subjects? Do they pose a security threat to the nation that the ministry has to classify these grades under the Official Secret Act (OSA)?" asked state DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen (left) asked.

"It defies all logic to classify the marks for public examinations as official secret," he added.

Chong, the MP for Bandar Kuching had wanted to find out from the education minister the passing marks for grades A, B, C, D and E for Mathematics, Additional mathematics, physics, chemistry and English over the past seven years.

"Instead I received a written reply from the ministry telling me that the preparation for examination papers and materials including marks scored by candidates are confidential as they fall under the Official Secrets Act.

"It is ludicrous for the ministry to provide me a written reply by quoting Part 11, Section 4 of the Education Act 1996," he said, pointing out that the section says 'for each district or for such other area in a state as may be determined by the minister and education officer designed as such for the purposes of this Act'.

"It has no relevance to the Official Secrets Act. This tells us that the ministry has lot things to hide so much so that they have to hide the passing marks as official secrets," he said.

Sliding marks prompted questions

Chong said: "What prompted me to ask these questions is that there have been very obvious drops in the standard of Mathematics and Science of students in Malaysia when they participated in the Trends in international Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).

"In the latest TIMSS 2011, Malaysia is lagging so far behind other nations such as South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan which occupy the top five spots worldwide.

"Malaysia scored an average 440 points in Mathematics in Form Two, which is equivalent to eighth grade worldwide," said Chong.

He said in science Malaysia scored 426 points, tying with Syria and just pipping Palestine, Georgia and Oman which totalled up 420 points in each of the tests.

"There are huge drops in the standard of mathematics and science subjects of  students in Malaysia, and our position has dropped from 22 in 1997 to 32 in 2012.

"But I was surprised and shocked to receive the written reply from the ministry of education saying that the passing marks for these subjects are secret," he said, adding that he is adamant in seeking the truth.

Chong said that rumours have been making the rounds that the passing mark for additional mathematics and science subjects in the SPM examinations is 20 based on the results of  students who continued to score 20 marks in school examinations and managed to pass their public examinations.

"I don't want to say that the education system in the country is a failure. But we want the of education minister to explain this matter to the public," he said.

He said that the minister has always been shouting that the nation's passing rates are rising by the year with the quality of our students also improving.

"But when these student step out of Malaysia, and compete with other countries, the standard drops each year," he said.

"As parents we are worried about our children's education," he added.
