Kali ini, ana nak guna apa yang Lim Kit Siang tulis dalam blognya sebagai rujukan kita orang Melayu di Malaysia ni.
Ana sedih, sebab dalam Perhimpunan Agung UMNO tak ada seorang pun yang berani bersuara untuk memberitahu kegagalan anak Ustaz Mat Yasin membuat kerja yang baik di Kementerian Pelajaran.

For instance, for mathematics with score of 421, Malaysia’s 15-year-olds is five years behind their peers in Shanghai (613), four years behind Singapore, and more than three years behind seven countries/regions – Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Macao, Japan, Liechtenstein and Switzerland.
For science, with score of 420, Malaysia is 4.2 years behind Shanghai (580), and more than three years behind six countries/regions – Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Finland and Estonia. For reading, with score of 398, Malaysia is four-and-a-half years behind Shanghai (570), more than three years behind 13 other countries/regions – Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Finland, Canada, Taiwan, Ireland, Poland, Estonia, Liechtenstein, Australia and New Zealand.
The reason for Muhyiddin’s prolonged and conspicuous silence on 2012 PISA is simple and straightforward – he has no concrete plans to catapult Malaysia into the top third of 2021 PISA as Malaysia would have to become a “wonder country” to achieve what no nation could do in four triennial PISA tests.
The 2012 PISA shows that among countries which participated in every PISA assessment since 2003, seven countries record an average improvement in mathematics performance of more than 2.5 points per year since 2003.
They are Brazil which improved 35 points from 356 to 391 in the four triennial PISA tests of 2003, 2006, 2009 and 2012; Italy which improved 19 points from 466 to 485; Mexico which improved 28 points from 385 to 413; Poland which improved 18 points from 490 to 518; Portugal which improved 21 points from 466 to 487; Tunisia which improved 29 points from 359 to 388; and Turkey which improved 25 points from 423 to 448.
Muhyiddin jangan buat muka toya dengan kegagalan ini. Benda ini benda serius. Kalau tak tahu apa yang Komrad Kit Siang tulis, ana boleh translatekan.
