KUALA LUMPUR: The Education Ministry’s Inspectorate of Schools is monitoring 114 schools around the country in the first week of school to ensure that the new medium of instruction for Mathematics and Science is implemented without any hitches. 

“According to early reports, all schools have received the necessary equipment, so what we are looking at is the implementation process and teaching standards,” said its chief Rusli Rashiqin in a phone interview yesterday.  

He said the main aspect to scrutinise was the teachers' level of confidence. “We have to observe how confident they are in using the language and equipment in class when they teach, as well as how prepared they are.  

“We also have to know the possible reasons for their lack of confidence, such as technical glitches and class size.”
