I left Malaysia at 15 to study in Singapore. The only real problem here is the "bumiputera" policy and its implication. Our neighbour's education system is amongst the top globally, I see no reason why our country is still stuck here, and not emulating the South. We keep politicising everything, our education is not going anywhere.
Protecting our cultural heritage and providing a quality education are two separate things. Our government practises favouritism, is it a wonder why the other races would want to fight back harder?
