Is it a remorse and regretful picture of us of not keeping English for Mathematics and Science? It is of interest to note that the abolishment of ppsmi of education policies in Malaysia lacked transparency and hence the lack of objective measures on the efficacy of PPSMI.

It is not surprising that there has always been a lack of transparency of information conferred by the government. There were no stages of implementation, policy reviews and continued research to develop this policy. Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin the current Education Minister of Malaysia used the results of this research and advocated the need to abolish this policy.

Secondly, education cannot be solely measured on a cost-benefit analysis where the success of the policy implemented results in the return on public spending.

For Science achievement, the results show the opposite. A similar trend was observed in the report Table 2which also showed a tendency for abolishment of ppsmi score in science for those who never speak the language of the test at home.

In a policy analysis that was reported by Ismaila policy analysis tool1 was used and a pilot test was conducted on a small sample of schools in three northern states Kedah, Penang, Perlis to measure school performance in Mathematics and Science.

They are subjects which need deep elaborations as to its concepts as well as strict methodology when it comes to actual practice in the labs or in real life.

Maths and Science are closely related to the understanding of what is happening around us and it is only natural that its basic principles should be taught in a language which is the most familiar to the students as well as the teachers. Just imagine what will happen if the teachers themselves cannot even fully elaborate and convey the knowledge to their students due to their lack of command of English not to mention the students.

I do believe though that should the government at the time had enough abolishment of ppsmi and courage to implement the policy with gradual improvements and tinkering from time to time despite all the noise etc. The Parent Action Group for Education Malaysia PAGE has been in the forefront to champion the cause to maintain the policy for those who wish their children to learn these two 2 subjects in its lingua franca that is English.
