KUALA LUMPUR — July 16, 2020: The government has no plan to reintroduce the teaching of Science and Mathematics in English in schools that was adopted in 2003 in the final year of during Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s first tenure as prime minister but abolished in 2011.

However the Perikatan Nasional government plans to continue with the previous government’s decision to reduce the Jawi script syllabus to three pages for Standard 4 pupils in vernacular schools.

The position on these matters was mentioned by Education Minister Radzi Jidin in his written reply in Parliament today.
