Future of DLP still uncertain

REFERENCE is made to “Justify new conditions under DLP guidelines, MOE urged” (The Star, Nov 27), where it is reported that Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek declared in the Dewan Rakyat that, “The guidelines remained the same until today, we never changed it. For schools that have 100% implemented the programme this year, they may continue to do so, we have no problem with that.”

If truly the Dual Language Programme (DLP) guidelines have remained, then the five affected schools, namely SK Convent Bukit Nanas (1), SK Bukit Damansara, SJKT Vivekananda, SJKT Segambut and SJKT Ladang Edinburgh, have met all the criteria since the inception of DLP in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
