Madam Wee, whose Primary 3 daughter is studying French, said: "I encouraged my daughter to take up Chinese in kindergarten and Primary 1. And I sent her for classes outside as well. But after one year of struggling in the subject, I realised that she is better off doing French. At least my British husband and I can help her with it."
She said that although there was a new scoring system in the works, she, like many parents, had thought that the MOE would not veer much from the current way of scoring.
"If I had known, I may have made a different decision and perhaps stuck with Chinese," she said.
She and several others are calling for the MOE to stick to the current scoring system for pupils already in primary school.
Said Madam Wee: "Such changes should not be dropped on students in the midst of their curriculum. If such a policy is to be introduced, it should commence from 2023 at the earliest, so that students and parents seeking exemption now have time to consider their options.
Why did MOE in the first case, grant an exemption to her child, with an ENGLISH father and a CHINESE mother ?
Under what kind of circumstances (situation), was the exemption granted to Madam Wee's child, when right from the on-start, her child has NO medical issue, to begin with ?
Why did MOE allow (approve) her child to take French in leu of Chinese Mother tongue, when French is Not even a language of this child's BRITISH father nor her CHINESE mother, to begin with ?
