Unpublished letter to Star Editor :Book on Ethnic Relations , UPM should be reviewed
I agree with the Ministers in the Prime Minister’s department Datuk Seri Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz to relook into the content of a Ethnic Relations book that is published in haste by UPM. As an alumni of the university, I do agree that the university and the higher Education Ministry should review into the procedure in order to obtain a reliable book of such important subject. This can be a highly sensitive process that requires an experienced panel and consultation in all level of the development. And it needs to bring the topic to fit the level of an undergraduate through self analysis and critical discovery with experience guidance. Surely a book like this should not be treated as a ‘material to be improved on later”. Learn , relearn and unlearn – the hardest of these 3 is to unlearn a knowledge that has been ( wrongly ) taught.
