‘Remove class a waste of time’

Monday, June 25, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR: Remove class is a waste of time and should be scrapped, said Tamil School Headmasters Council chairman P. Doraisamy.

“It affects the confidence  of these students, who study in isolation.”

Doraisamy, 58, said poor competency in Bahasa Malaysia  and  English  among Tamil and Chinese  school students was also attributed to  remove classes.

“BM is  taught (in Tamil and Chinese schools) at a standard lower than that  in national schools.

“The students should be put in regular Form One classes to allow them to mingle with others and improve their language proficiency.”

Doraisamy said  Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had  met the council  and discussed issues concerning remove classes early this year.

Dr K. Jegathisan, 28,  said:  “The students  must know that they, too, have equal opportunities to progress.  I was in a remove class  and I didn’t find it useful at all.”
