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.”
