    Education in Malaysia is in deep trouble. I am a lecturer in one of the private university that our goverment is so keen to promote to turn Malaysia into the centre of education. We are seeing more of quantity rather than quality students, and I do not mean those bad apples are not entitled to a good education, it is just that they are not interested. I had worked with the marketing to recruit students and it seems like quantity is more important to the top management since it brings in more income. What they say, garbage in, garbage out is begining to make sense. We have students in the business school and also from the engineering school who cannot even speak proper english and expect high starting salary from international companies. I spoke to a colleage of mine from Singapore, and he said “A degree holder from MARA cannot do simple accounts, and I have to teach her, and she has a degree in that field.” What a joke. Maybe it is time our Minister open his eyes and talk to the lecturers from universities to see what is actually going on before it is too late. Before Malaysian graduate become a laughing stock….or they are already a laughing stock to some organisation?
