Apa kata: Streaming = Sistem pengasingan kelas

Berikut ialah petikan daripada komen-komen tentang siaran kami pada minggu lepas. Here are some comments from readers about our post last week.

Daripada Maryam Kamal, di Facebook:

Ada pro dan kontra sistem streaming. Kontranya ialah murid menjadi kurang bermotivasi apabila dikelaskan di kelas ‘belakang’.

Kontra apabila tiada sistem streaming ialah guru mengalami kesukaran apabila mengajar murid berbagai tahap penguasaan dalam satu kelas.

From an anonymous reader, on dialogpendidikan.com:

… My schooling was in national type schools in Ipoh from 1961 (Standard 1) to 1972 (Form 6, Cambridge HSC). …

Perhaps, the main flaw was that, in my experience, the system tended, generally, to produce one-dimensional adults – very good at what they did, earning sizeable incomes, but not much else. They mixed mainly with like-minded people (because of grouping), read very little else besides their ‘speciality’ (because of streaming), and, sadly, sometimes smack of opinionated narrow-mindedness.

Note: in May, we will focus on different ways of organising subjects in upper secondary school, e.g. the arts and sciences streams and other approaches. Nota: pada bulan Mei nanti, kami akan memberi tumpuan kepada cara-cara mengasingkan mata pelajaran sekolah menengah, seperti aliran sains dan sastera serta cara organisasi lain.

From Ngee Derk, on Facebook:

… besides student motivation and outcomes, we need to also weigh the social implications of trying to overly homogenize classes.

‘Birds of a feather flock together’ as they say, and it’s quite natural in life to seek out people who are similar to us. But being classmates in school provides opportunities for students to make friends with a more diverse range of people. This is especially true in Malaysia where perpaduan is a very important goal of public education — ideally lah.

Daripada Umar, di dialogpendidikan.com:

Saya terima dengan baik perubahan dasar kementerian pendidikan. Sebagai bapa yang anaknya akan memasuki alam persekolahan pada tahun hadapan, segala dasar yang kini sedang dirombak akan memberi impak yang besar kepada generasi ini. Pembatalan sistem ‘streaming’ perlu selari dengan pemerkasaan warga pendidik dalam membentuk pelajar yang lebih ’rounded’. …

From YY, on dialogpendidikan.com:

Just wondering how much ability grouping done by parents (i.e. parents sending children to better schools) affects educational outcomes, versus ability grouping done within schools (i.e. grouping students in different ability classes). …

And does the initial average performance of all students affect whether mixed-ability classes are more effective? Just wondering if a school is at the bottom 20%, does it negate the positive effects of mixed-ability class?
