When will we have Leaders who will solve our race polarisation problem once and for all

While our political Leaders are promoting the 1Malaysia brand and giving support  to the vernacular schools as part of the branding process among others, its good to see and read many dissenting voices which opined that vernacular schools should make way for a one school system so that polarisation among the races which is increasingly becoming a very serious  problem in Malaysia could be curbed and controlled. One such voice is YB Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim:

Polarisasi kaum: Kerajaan disaran hapus sekolah vernakular
12/10/2011 7:49pm

KUALA LUMPUR 12 Okt – Ahli Parlimen Bebas bagi Bayan Baru, Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim hari ini menyarankan supaya sistem pendidikan negara diolah semula dengan menghapuskan sistem sekolah pelbagai aliran atau vernakular yang didakwanya menyebabkan polarisasi kaum di negara ini.

 

Justeru, beliau meminta kerajaan mewujudkan semula sekolah wawasan bagi memastikan murid-murid dididik dalam persekitaran majmuk dan seterusnya melahirkan generasi akan datang yang lebih bersatu padu dan tidak hanya memikirkan kepentingan kaum masing-masing.

“Malaysia bukan negara Cina, Malaysia bukan negara India dan Malaysia juga bukan negara Arab. Malaysia kita adalah satu negara majmuk dan seharusnya sistem pendidikan kita diolah kembali,” katanya ketika membahaskan Rang Undang-Undang Perbekalan 2012 di Dewan Rakyat di sini.


Zahrain berkata, transformasi sistem persekolahan atau pendidikan peringkat sekolah rendah dan menengah kini pincang kerana sistem peninggalan penjajah menyebabkan kemunculan generasi yang rasis dan hanya memikirkan kepentingan kaum masing-masing.
Beliau juga merujuk kepada perbuatan pelakon dan penyanyi rap Wee Meng Chee atau Namewee yang didakwanya kurang ajar hingga mudah memaki hamun seorang wanita dalam klip video terbarunya.
“Saya pasti Namewee tidak akan bertindak sebegitu liar dan memaki hamun seorang wanita dalam klip video terbaru-nya jika beliau diasuh secara betul dalam persekitaran yang majmuk,” katanya. – Bernama

Picked this up from the SatuSekolahUntukSemua blog here:

Kerajaan Di Saran Lagi Supaya Menghapuskan Sekolah Vernakular – Apa lagi yang DS Najib ingin pertahankan?

I have done some writing on this subject too, read here, here and here.

Here is some statistics I took off Helen Ang’s blog (read here):
I just do not know when the Government of the Day will stop trading our Nation’s Education System for political support and votes. I am normally a optimist, but in this instance I do not see a Malaysian Leader who would sacrifice his political position for a one school  education system in the next 2 decades.

I pray that one day there will be a Leader who sees that a One School System is indeed the key to  unity among races in this blessed country, and he like Singapore’s Leader Lee Kuan Yew has the political will and foresight  to change for the better for the country he leads.
