Cheif i was thinking of everyone who opposes the mt weightage to sign a petition on kp and submit to MOE. What do you think? Shall we do it?

Thanks for your mind, but a petition has already began. An official facebook group with a number to call in order to oppose has been created as well.

Here you go. It has been reported in the newspaper as well. But don't worry. Its under review, and most probably, they'll end the review based on PSLE results this year, so earliest next year it would start.

Besides FB, also heard about the petition at the speakers' corner?

I just hope that everyone who feels strongly about it must made their views known.

Still don't understand the intention to help the 10% minority. Sacrifice the majority to help the minority :? Also on FB, someone posted results of past PSLE performance. It appeared that passing rate for CL is almost as good as EL. Meanwhile Maths has a poor showing....

Don't we already have a poll in the other thread that allows people to state their opinion? Given the seriously of the issue, you can rest assured that MOE will be closely monitoring the Internet for opinions, including that thread. There's no need to duplicate efforts of others in setting up yet another petition.
