Success of DLP depends on political will

I REFER to the report on the concerns of parents of Primary 6 pupils taking the Dual Language Programme (DLP) with regards to their children’s enrolment in DLP in secondary schools next year, “DLP concerns” (Sunday Star, June 19).

The initial success of the DLP after its implementation in 2016 should be the benchmark for Primary 6 students to continue doing the programme at secondary level. A survey conducted back then showed that most, if not all, students who opted for the programme were found to have achieved better grades in English at both the primary and secondary schools where they studied.
