(The Star) – KUALA LUMPUR: The Parent Action Group for Education Malaysia (PAGE) and Jaringan Melayu Malaysia (JMM) hope the Government would consider giving an option to Year One pupils who have started learning Science and Mathematics in Bahasa Malaysia this year, to study the subjects in English.

PAGE chairman Datin Noor Azimah Abdul Rahim said this would enable the pupils to understand and use scientific terms in English.

She also said that both PAGE and JMM would like to thank Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for listening to the voices of parents on the PPSMI issue.

Noor Azimah reiterated that the PPSMI policy should continue as it was visionary.

“PAGE and JMM will continue to represent the voices of parents,” she added, during a joint press conference with JMM here on Wednesday.

JMM president Azwanddin Hamzah was also at the press conference.
