Prioritise English language in Sarawak, says assemblyman


SIBU: Bukit Assek assemblyman, Irene Chang has told the PH government not to back track on its GE14 election manifesto on the use of English as the medium of instruction in national schools in the country.

The Education Ministry’s written reply recently to Batang Sadong MP Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri that using English as a medium of instruction in schools, including schools in Sarawak, would violate the Federal Con­stitution, the National Language Act 1963/67 and the Education Act 1996 is disappointing.
