KSSR Receives Positive Feedback From Teachers, Parents

PUTRAJAYA: The newly- implemented Primary School Standard Curriculum (KSSR) has received positive feedback from teachers and parents, in that it has increased interest among students to learn English.

Education Deputy Director-General (Policy) Prof Dr Khair Mohamad Yusof said this was because the KSSR approach was no longer the ‘chalk and talk’ method, but focused on a more fun way of learning English.

“KSSR not only emphasises on language proficiency, but also communication among the students. It also uses other methods such as games and music,” he said.

He was speaking to reporters after receiving a group of superbike riding teachers from Selangor, who were participating in the 1Malaysia Motor Convoy from Shah Alam to the education ministry here today.

Khair said the KSSR, which was only introduced to Year 1 primary students this year, would be implemented for Year 2 primary students and Form 1 students next year.
