Un-Educated.

Remember the article about the schools' sports excellence centre (pic) along Jalan Cochrane?

This is the reply I got from the ministry sometime ago;

Untuk makluman, keputusan telah dibuat agar Pusat Kecemerlangan Sukan (PKS) Cochrane dipindahkan ke tapak baru di ‘Plot C’ berdekatan dengan tapak sedia ada. Perpindahan tersebut adalah bagi memberi laluan kepada cadangan pembangunan di tapak sedia ada PKS Cochrane tersebut.

Tapak bagi PKS tersebut yang telah dikenalpasti iaitu di bekas tapak Maktab Perguruan Seri Kota, sedang dinaiktaraf bagi penempatan sementara. Dalam masa yang sama, cadangan untuk membina PKS yang baru di tapak gantian tetap sedang diteliti di peringkat Kementerian bagi memastikan pusat baru yang akan dibina menepati kehendak dan standard Kementerian . Kos untuk menaiktaraf tapak sementara dan tapak gantian tetap bagi PKS tersebut adalah ditanggung sepenuhnya oleh pihak pemaju.

Unamused with the answer, this was my reply - and a copy was sent to Education Minister Muhyiddin Yassin's press secretary on March 16, 2011;


It is quite disappointing to note that the answer provided by the Ministry - depite the week-long period to reply - is merely a summary of what has already been reported by The Malay Mail.


The good Ministry had somehow failed to answer our queries (as per the article) to why the Pusat Kecermelangan Sukan at Jalan Cochrane must be demolished when schools in the area are kept intact. Also, the need of moving them to another location (Jalan Maran) only to return back to the same area (Jalan Cochrane) is also baffling. Wouldn't the role of the Pusat Kecermelangan Sukan be redundant for the next two years (at least) until their new center is fully operational?


We are still awaiting for the good Ministry to respond on claims that State Sports Councils have not received an increase of bugdet despite the RM89 million grant which was allocated to schools sports - as announced by Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin - last year.


Thanking you in advance.


And the response I got on the same day;


En. Haresh

Pihak kami mengambil maklum.

Perhaps the issue is not 'big enough to win votes'.

I would like to quote Usop from Hantu Kak Limah Balik Rumah;

"Tu lah sekolah dulu tak nak ambik English education...."

Jokes aside, my patience is wearing thin.
