Every Malaysian parent is concerned that local universities are following the law of gravity in slippng lower each year in academic standings.
Those who are able to send their children overseas are unperturbed as they have given up on local standards.
According to this malaysiakini report, our PM has noticed and is concerned.
I don't intend to write a long argument but there is only one solution to the slippery slope. It is spelled
M E R I T O C R A C Y.
All the government needs to do is to privatise one of the local Us and grant them full autonomy to operate without being restricted by any laws related to universities. Perhaps one of the more established colleges will be able to show the way.
Give them 5 years to improve and I am sure it will solve many of our problems.
What do you think?
