‘Dual-language programme in Sarawak to continue’

SIBU: Sarawak would never scrap its implementation of the dual-language programme (DLP), said Assistant Minister of Education, Science and Technological Research Dr Annuar Rapa’ee.

He said last year, the then-Minister of Education had wanted to make Sarawak the first state in Malaysia to re-implement the teaching and learning of Mathematics and Science subjects in English.

“Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg agreed to implement the programme in Sarawak.

“Many other states also wanted to follow us in implementing the (DLP) programme but unfortunately, the Ministry of Education back then did not have the fund to implement it,” he said when launching an outreach programme for Sarawak DLP 2020 here yesterday.
