Results of failed education system

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 9:01 PM

Road Transport Department director-general Datuk Nadzri Siron disclosed that there are 18.8 million registered vehicles and 14 million drivers in the country, and his department is conducting a campaign to get 1.2 million Malaysians without driving licences to apply for them.

Last year, a total of 6,700 fatal accidents were recorded with 62 per cent of them involving motorcyclists. Of the total number, some 30 per cent involved school students.

If we wish to ensure the public and next generation of Malaysians possess attitudes and practices that prioritise road safety and compliance with the law, then it has to start with education in schools and continue through colleges and universities.

Those who failed to observe safety and compliance with the law are not educated, regardless of the academic qualifications they may have obtained.

Likewise, it is no surprise that many unemployed or underemployed graduates could not explain in their own words what they have studied for a few years.

If they cannot think and express clearly on the spot, they will not be convincing during job interviews or are able to perform well at work.

Whatever qualifications they have may not be worth the paper they are printed on, and these include many working adults who obtained their MBAs and PhDs from little-known universities.

The high level of apathy in our society is a reflection of a failed education system. Using the increasing number of students that have completed secondary and tertiary education as KPI is nothing more than a ‘syiok sendiri’ exercise.

As the proof of the pudding is in the eating, reducing the number Malaysians without driving licences and fatal accidents in the country are concrete measures.

These are among the manifestations of a failed education system. The target for the Road Safety Plan 2014-2020 is to reduce up to 50 per cent of fatal accidents nationwide, and success is possible when education and enforcements are redoubled, if not transformed.
