Back to old school tactics

REFERENCE is made to the letter “When a right answer is wrong” by Frustrated Student (The Star, Feb 21).

PAGE (Parent Action Group For Education) Malaysia echoes the student’s frustration as we had been made to believe that we had gone past “teaching to the test” where key words, facts and figures were memorised and then regurgitated by students to maximise marks. In the process, they learnt little, if at all, as they ignored the how and why of the questions.
