Education Ministry approves dual language programme for another 126 schools

PADANG TERAP: Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid has announced the approval of another 126 schools in the country that will implement the Dual Language Programme (DLP) this year.

Mahdzir, who is also Padang Terap MP, said the approval was given as the schools concerned had met the criteria outlined by the ministry to implement the programme.

"Last December, we received a total of 214 applications to implement the DLP, and after an evaluation, only 88 schools were given approval.

"Today, I would like to announce that the remaining 126 schools have also been given approval to implement the DLP," he told reporters after visiting the family of teacher Md Zain Saad, who died of kidney failure on Dec 29, at the Kampung Baru Public Housing in Kuala Nerang here Friday.

Mahdzir said with the latest round of approval, the total number of schools implementing the DLP, which began in 2015, was 1,429.

"We are confident that schools which have opted to run the DLP can implement it well, because it shows that the schools' administration as well as the students' parents are ready, and want to implement the programme.

"Every year, there are more applications to run the DLP, so this shows that it is in high demand, especially from parents who know how important it is for their children," he said.

He added that that Government had taken various proactive measures to empower English teachers, including establishing the English Language Teaching Centre (ELTC).
