Mother tongue weighting in PSLE could be cut

Singapore's Education Minister Ng Eng Hen says his ministry is studying whether it is educationally sound for mother tongue language performance to count for so much at the Primary 6 PSLE level. Since the Mother Tongue language now carries equal weight as the other three, then why is Singapore finding it to be too much?

'The worry is whether it could exclude someone from progressing in his educational pathway even if he did well in other subjects,' said Dr Ng in an interview with The Straits Times and Lianhe Zaobao.

If the reason for lowering the weighting is due to many not doing well in the language, then this is really disappointing of Dr Ng. Instead of lowering the weighting, students should be encouraged and motivated to do better in the language. If one day students do not do well in English, does this mean weighting of English language would be lowered as well?

Let's not be quitters!

So where exactly is Najib and his wife Rosmah? Even Google is showing the below when I type "where is". I bet many people are now searching for this.
