My say on Khalid's proposal for UiTM quota

As you all may know, I am a former student of UiTM, Shah Alam and I am still very proud to have it in my heart. I even set a target to return to UiTM to be a part-time lecturer one day. UiTM has indeed gave me surprises and saved me from the obscurity few years ago.

As you may also aware, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim had recently suggested that UiTM to be open to Non-Bumiputras to yield competitiveness among students. Full stop.

I remember when I was in my second semester when I sat for my English examination paper. The question asked what could I do to make your university a better place, slightly easy to pass this one if I gave a straight-forward essay. I took the risk and wrote something controversial and against the principles of UiTM, recommending the university to be opened to Non-Bumiputras to increase competitiveness.

It was justified because at that time I was placed with the first years Diploma students as it was a 3-year degree course. I had yet to meet the people of my age as they were finishing their diploma as final year students and then only they would later join me in my second year to pursue their degree. I found that the Diploma students at that time especially the boys lacked motivation to succeed and some even had left before anything had even begun.

When I first came to UiTM at the admission's office I saw one person who was given the chance to enroll at the university despite scoring 'colourful' grades in her SPM with no As, Bs or Cs. How could you let someone like this enter the university? I thought.

But then again, my grades in A-levels would atleast give me a place in University of Kent, Canterbury but I was offered Financial Mathematics course only to be called off by Permodalan Nasional Berhad. However, in my opinion, my grades should get me to nowhere as well but UiTM was happy to accept my application without hesitation. I was even escalated to the degree course instead of the Diploma.

Of course it was hard for me to realise initially of what UiTM is trying to do. In my own words, it is a university that would give some people a second chance. With my knowledge and experience about the university, I am sure the girl with 'colourful SPM grades' have excelled in her studies and should be working by now as I believe she is one of those 87.1% UiTM graduates who were yearly employed, which is a very high percentage, in average.

When I went into my second year, I still thought I was one of the best students in Actuarial Science alongside recently married Nadia Hanna. Well, I found out that this group (you know who you are), who had only returned from Diploma final project semester was one of the best I have ever seen. The cream of the crop that I wouldn't expect to be in a local university.

Yes, I was one of those fools who thought that overseas students should be an awful lot better than the local students. One over-zealous fool once told me, in my very own room, as I was in Neasden that the local students were incompetitive and far from the overseas students' standard. Well, who cares about YOUR standards? Who are you to judge that local students are crap just because you were from University of Manchester?

I am a student of both worlds. Atleast I have the right information to say how good these local universities students are. And yes, I am sure if these group had been in the UK, they would be far superior than you arrogant University of Manchester graduate. This statement should apply to anyone who still think Malaysian local graduates are no good.

Adding to that, the later groups of Actuarial Science students from UiTM are seen to be better than us according to some lecturers. Many of them are coming to London and enrolling in universities in Australia like Macquarie to gain professsional exemptions.

I bet you all know how exceptional UiTM graduates are when many of them succeeded in the real world. MNRB CEO Encik Anuar Hassan, who happened to be my neighbour was a UiTM graduate and one of the earliest students to enroll in insurance-related subjects. Mass-com students have shown of great track record notably Fara Fauzana and so have the accounting, engineering and law graduates. You should be able to find many public figures of different professions, politicians included are UiTM graduates.

UiTM students competitive and intelligent? Checked. Definitely is a big yes!

Therefore on the notion of allowing Non-Bumiputras into UiTM simply to increase competitiveness, is an INSULT to all UiTM graduates and I expect the MB to have more cells in his brain as he is a wiser man compared to that Manchester graduate. Note that I keep referring to this person as I demand apology from him on behalf of all UiTM grads.

However, if your suggestion to open UiTM quota to Non-Bumiputras for the sake of UNITY (PERPADUAN RAKYAT), I should have no qualms about it. And I will second that motion. However, it should not start at UiTM.

Most importantly, it should start from schools! Clearly Tan Sri Khalid made that statement as a populist. But a better idea should be abolishing races-based schools like Chinese Schools, Tamil Schools or Malay Schools. Of course he will never said that either he is too afraid of losing Non-Bumiputras votes in Selangor or simply he will do at will to stay in power and didn't mind stirring racial tensions.

For me, if you are sincere, God will be by your side. The Rakyat will be by your side. Just be honest about it you don't have to be a politician with many faces. For example, your tone and pronunciation went differently at different places based on the majority populace.

You can always be a sincere leader of the nation. Competitive, active, assertive leader.

Without stirring racial tensions. Without having to undermine people's intelligence.

Open UiTM to Non-Bumis? Yes! For the sake of unity, yes.

For the sake of competitiveness? That is one BIG INSULT.

Jeghui - "UiTM di hatiku."

Note: For that English subject, I scored an A. I thought I would be summoned by the VC. I guess unlike the MB, I also stated opening the university to Non-Bumis will also promote racial harmony. You see. If you are sincere in your words, God will stand by you. So will the rakyat.

well said man, i agree with u mostly except i that i have had some bad experience with UiTM graduates when working with them and when hiring some of them..maybe they are from different courses and the guys from your faculty rocks..maybe they are different individuals and i'm just "uni profiling"..

and i do agree that primary schools should be integrated and shouldn't be racially divided..and it should start with re-looking at the NEP because theres no logic to promote racial harmony in primary schools while out there in the real malaysian world everything else is racial based..but of course some might argue that NEP has nothing to do with this and in fact it helps promote racial harmony..well, what can i say?

one interesting note here. do u know that most chinese primary schools are funded by the chinese community and the government hardly pays anything?yet these chinese school accepted non chinese students indiscriminately without any quota. in fact non chinese are accepted immediately without having to queue and fight for the space unlike every chinese child..yes, non chinese are given special rights when enrolling in chinese schools at the expense of the chinese community who funded the schools..and some schools even have special classes for non chinese to help them catch up in mandarin..

i've read some blogs by UiTM graduates who mostly slammed the MB for his proposal on the basis that UiTM is for bumis only and it is a bastion where malay education and community can thrive by itself ..theres alot of racial pride in them..

however u disagreed because u think UiTM deserves better credit and the MB is doing it for the wrong reason..i can't disagree with an academic "pride" based on facts and personal experience..

anyways its kinda sad to see that most of our country's brighter minds are not back here in malaysia.

Jeg,

I don't have any first hand experience in working with UiTM graduates, but I have had some students from local universities coming over to my office doing their internship, practical students as we call it in Malaysia.

While they have the knowledge and the skills needed, I found that most of them have problems expressing their ideas in English. I had no trouble communicating with them in Malay, but when I read the written reports (in English) submitted by them, I barely understood them.

Hence come the perception of local graduates' inferiority by employers. In my opinion, local graduates are not inferior in any sense, but these communication problems make them look inferior.

Regarding the Selangor MB's proposal, while not ruling out that it might be a political ploy, I do think there is some merit to it. University is a place where one should learn how to live in the real world, away from the comfort of home. Hence, I believe that university should mimic the real world situation.

One major part of it would be the racial composition. Malaysia is not populated by only one race. It consists of Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban, Kadazan, Kenyah, Kayan, Kelabit, Sino and many other races. The same situation should be adopted in universities. People of all races should be allowed into all universities in Malaysia, so that it reflects the Malaysian population.

In UiTM's case, while priority should be given to Bumiputera students, non-Bumiputeras should be allocated places too.

I'm afraid that if we wait for the students to graduate before they are exposed to the whole complexity of multi-racial Malaysia, it might be too late for them.

Dear Ope,

It was obviously a political ploy. If the case of making the graduates prepare for the real world, what the government should do is to start from the root of the problem. Not right from the top.

What if Khalid was to say "No more Chinese schools to promote unity". Obviously the Chinese would be very-very angry.

As per your experience with the local graduates, I am sure there are still plenty of students struggling to express in English.

I can be sure to point out that some overseas graduates are struggling with their English too despite being sent to the UK to study. This is because of the concentration of Malay students in overseas.

The reason this entry was made is to remind politicians, be it PR or BN to be sensitive with what the Rakyat actually wants. As per abolishing Chinese or Tamil or Malay type of schools, I never said we should do it now because a sudden change will only cause chaos. Doing it gradually should appear more sensible.

But I stand with what I said. Why start from the top (universities) when we should start from bottom where children can be taught about living together among many races?

Hi jeg,

New reader on your blog here, I like your take on this issue. It is indeed an insult to UiTM students on the basis of competitiveness. But clearly a lot of them see it as their sole right merely base on skin color.

I agree with you too that it should start from the schools. I found that a lot of my chinese/indians friends who still hangs out with me are all from Sekolah Kebangsaan. You can tell the difference from a person whose from those SK(J) schools.

And regarding expressing ideas in English, a lot of people just needs experience to do so. Tell them to write in BM and it is still the same thing. It's business writing skills.

Well that's just my two cents worth. Have a nice day!

u listed almost if not all unis in malaysia, but what does "Others" represented by? (39.5%) despite having the headings "other public unis" and "private unis" as well.

this stats needs verfication and that stats is for year 2006 and what I said in the entry is the yearly average.

Promoting unity since primary school - the previous government came up with Sekolah Wawasan. I still remember the reaction from vernacular schools.

Opening UiTM to non-Bumis for the sake of unity? Not necessarily. Come to my School, and I'll show you how both parties treat one another as dummy variable. They've been learning in the same lecture hall/class for 3 years, but not even a single photo taken together between group members. Many (not all) non-Bumis are still not fluent in BM, which is vital when they need to communicate with the teaching staff. In KYUEM, both parties mingle well because there are not many variables in the unity model, and also due to control measures taken by BOG, headmaster and teaching staff. Sadly, this is not a common situation in local universities where students have much freedom than those in your A-Level college,and teaching staff more interested in promotions, hence allocating more time for research.

Regarding the English proficiency level - it's not just the business writing skills. The writing skills can be learned, but the courage to converse in English is not there either. Most of students in my School can't even construct a grammatically correct sentence. Many of them can't even construct a n English sentence! Both parties.

The easiest job is done by politicians - talk.
Planners will crack their head to draw a comprehensive strategy for unity.
The executives will carry out and sweat.
Unity needs sincerity from all parties.

The problem with sekolah wawsan is, there will be 3 schools in one compound. the reactions over this idea from chauvinist chinese or indians in high proportions were somewhat expected thus making it sensible not to abolish chinese and tamil schools right away.

In addition, sekolah wawasan is deemed ridiculous for me as well because of its impracticality, breeding 3 'rival' schools and making it in a compound would make the situation worse.

The model I have been suggesting since day one is the KYS/KYUEM model to be used in making one national school a reality. Using this model in primary, secondary, matriculation schools and universities I am sure will promote better understanding among races.

May I ask which university are you lecturing?

May I ask which school are you teaching?

a lecturer said...

"...(The expected Chinese or Indian chauvinist reaction) (makes) it sensible not to abolish chinese and tamil schools right away".
Since Sekolah Wawasan (which is aimed to promote unity and racial integration) should not be the root cause to abolish the vernacular schools, do you think it's sensible to open UiTM to non-Bumi to promote unity?


"In addition, sekolah wawasan is deemed ridiculous for me as well because of its impracticality, breeding 3 'rival' schools and making it in a compound would make the situation worse". Why don't you stop looking at the potential problems of Sekolah Wawasan for a short while, and start searching for and analyzing the benefits & aims of Sekolah Wawasan instead? Once we understand the benefits, aims and potential problems, it'll be easier to devise implementation procedure for Sekolah Wawasan.


"KYS/KYUEM model to be used in making one national school a reality...". I've mentioned in my first post that this KYS/KYUEM model has less variables to control. Therefore, using the exact model won't necessarily lead to racial integration.

National unity needs sincerity of all parties.

Jeg said...

1st question: Yes, in the long run, where unity can be seen through primary and secondary schools, unis like UiTM will follow later after these two schools being implemented first.

2nd Question: Instead of having three race-based schools (indirectly), why cant we just have one school? I thought people nowadays (chinese and Indians especially) are so against race-based politics in Malaysia. So why condone race-based schools?

3rd Question: KYS/KYUEM have proven to be the best model to let the children mingle with each other. I am from both schools and although initially KYS is a all-malay school like MCKK, I laud the idea of letting non-malays enrolling for the school starting when i was in my Fifth Form. KYUEM later, has proven how we can still have one school for all in Malaysia. The academic record is excellent, and racial integration is being promoted and they all worked!

Jeg.. Read this article~!!Fikirkan lah...Jangan sempitkan pemikiran anda~!!!

Demo pelajar UiTM: Keprihatinan yang mengundang kecurigaan
Ahmad Tajdid
Ahmadtajdid @hmetro.com.my.
Sebagai bekas pelajar UiTM, penulis sebenarnya terkejut apabila dimaklumkan seorang rakan bahawa 5000 pelajar UiTM Shah Alam telah mengadakan unjuk rasa dan berarak sejauh 3 kilometer ke Bangunan SUK, Selangor, 12 Ogos lalu semata-mata untuk membantah kenyataan Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Setelah menghabiskan sebahagian usia remaja di UiTM dan berkecimpung dalam gerakan pelajar di kampus, penulis memang masak dengan senario kampus UiTM termasuk mentaliti para pelajarnya.
Adalah sesuatu yang menghairankan apabila para pelajar UiTM yang begitu teruk dikongkong Jabatan Hal Ehwal Pelajar boleh begitu prihatin dengan isu semasa dan seterusnya berdemonstrasi dan berarak dalam jumlah yang ramai, sedangkan demonstrasi diharamkan pentadbir UiTM dan ada kalangan pelajarnya yang dihukum dan disingkirkan kerana terlibat dengan demonstrasi.
Kongkongan HEP terhadap aktiviti pelajar juga mengakibatkan pelajar institusi Bumiputera itu tidak peka dengan isu semasa yang melingkari mereka. Jika ada diskusi intelek atau ceramah ilmiah yang dianjurkan, kehadiran pelajar (jika tanpa paksa) boleh dikira dengan jari. Keadaan ini berubah jika program hiburan ataupun konsert diadakan apabila ribuan pelajar akan hadir dan menunggu sehingga program tamat.
Kita tidak menolak kemungkinan bahawa unjuk rasa ribuan pelajar UiTM ini digerakkan oleh 'orang atasan' institusi itu. Pastinya pelajar yang sudah sebati dibelenggu Akta dan ditanam budaya takut untuk menyuarakan pandangan tentang politik dan isu semasa tidak berani berarak di jalan raya tanpa perkenan dan galakan pentadbir UiTM sendiri.

Jika tidak, mana mungkin unjuk rasa diadakan di hampir seluruh kampus UiTM seluruh negara termasuk cawangan Permatang Pauh (Pulau Pinang), Seri Iskandar (Perak), Arau (Perlis), Bandar Jengka (Pahang), Lendu (Melaka), Sungai Petani (Kedah), Kuala Terengganu (Terengganu) dan cawangan Machang (Kelantan).
'Histeria' yang melanda ini berpunca daripada cadangan Abdul Khalid agar UiTM membuka 10 peratus pengambilan kepada pelajar bukan bumiputera. Langkah ini, jelas beliau penting untuk meningkatkan daya saing pelajar dan mutu universiti awam bumiputera itu.

Cadangan Abdul Khalid itu bukanlah sesuatu yang baru. Seperti kata Profesor Emiritus Khoo Kay Kim dari Jabatan Sejarah, Universiti Malaya, cadangan pengambilan pelajar bukan Bumiputera oleh UiTM ini pernah dicadangkan kerajaan BN beberapa tahun lalu. Malah UiTM sendiri, kata Khoo telah pun melaksanakan cadangan itu tetapi tidak mendapat sambutan pelajar bukan bumiputera.

Mustahil bagi Naib Canselor UiTM, Dato' Seri Ibrahim Abu Shah tidak mengetahuinya ataupun sengaja menyembunyikan fakta itu untuk tujuan yang beliau sahaja yang tahu.

Manipulasi isu ini juga sebenarnya memalukan warga UiTM keseluruhannya - pelajar dan bekas pelajar. Kenapa? Kerana Abdul Khalid bukanlah orang yang mempunyai autoriti terhadap UiTM. Memang benar kampus induk UiTM terletak di Shah Alam, tetapi institusi itu berada di bawah kuasa Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi dan bukannya kerajaan negeri Selangor.

Apa jua kenyataan yang keluar daripada mulut Abdul Khalid tentang UiTM tidak punyai sebarang kesan kerana beliau bukan seorang yang berautoriti.

Pandangan Abdul Khalid juga sepatutnya dibahaskan secara akademik kerana itulah budaya yang harus dilaksanakan oleh sebuah IPTA; bukannya mendorong warganya beremosi dan bersentimen tanpa sebab yang wajar.

Membela hak Melayu? Tidakkah Ibrahim Abu Shah menyedari bahawa banyak isu lain berhubung hak Melayu yang sepatutnya diperjuangkan golongan 'nasionalis totok' seperti beliau. Bagaimana dengan dasar kerajaan BN yang membuka 10 peratus pengambilan Maktab Rendah Sains MARA kepada bukan Bumiputera? Bagaimana pula kuota biasiswa 55-45 bagi pelajar Bumiputera dan bukan Bumiputera untuk melanjutkan pelajaran ke luar negeri.

Jika Ibrahim benar-benar merasakan Abdul Khalid perlu memohon maaf; beliau terlebih dahulu perlu melakukan perkara serupa kerana telah pun melaksanakan idea Abdul Khalid beberapa tahun lalu seperti dinyatakan Prof Khoo Kay Kim.

Ibrahim juga dilapor menyifatkan Abdul Khalid sebagai cetek pemikiran kerana sukar menerima fakta mengenai pelbagai kejayaan yang dicapai UiTM sama ada di peringkat tempatan dan antarabangsa.
Tidak sedarkah Ibrahim bahawa beliau juga berfikiran cetek kerana mendakwa tidak melihat sebarang perubahan yang dilakukan kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat negeri Selangor sepanjang 100 hari memerintah negeri seperti dilaporkan Utusan Malaysia.

Beliau perlu menyedari bahawa walau bagaimana 'hebatnya' pencapaian UiTM, institusi itu masih tidak termasuk dalam ranking utama universiti dunia oleh mana-mana badan penarafan antarabangsa. Sehubungan itu, masih banyak ruang untuk memperbaiki UiTM sebagai universiti khusus Bumiputera. Teguran Abdul Khalid perlu dilihat sebagai cabaran dan bukannya penghinaan oleh warga UiTM.
Memang Ibrahim antara peneraju UiTM yang paling menonjol berpolitik. Tidak seperti Pengarah dan Naib Canselor ITM dan UiTM sebelumnya, Ibrahim lebih suka mengeluarkan pandangan memihak dalam sebarang isu. Sentimennya kepada parti-parti pembangkang termasuk PAS amat tebal berbanding sifat lunaknya kepada dasar-dasar BN.

Oleh kerana itulah, beliau tidak menentang keputusan bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Mahathir Mohamad untuk membuka UiTM kepada pelajar-pelajar bukan Bumiputera tetapi melompat setinggi langit apabila cadangan serupa dibuat Tan Sri Abdul Khalid.

UiTM sebenarnya memerlukan peneraju baru untuk terus unggul sebagai institusi melatih profesional Bumiputera. Individu seperti Almarhum Prof Nik Abdul Rashid Nik Abdul Majid perlu dicari untuk melonjakkan imej dan kredibiliti UiTM di peringkat nasional dan antarabangsa. Almarhum ialah seorang nasionalis tulen yang benar-benar memperjuangkan kepentingan Melayu tanpa menghiraukan batasan politik. Para pelajar ITM era 80-an dapat merasakan semangat kental Pak Nik dalam mengangkat martabat ITM sebagai institusi unggul Melayu-Bumiputera.

Di majlis-majlis perhimpunan pelajar ITM, Pak Nik tidak segan silu mengkritik sebahagian ahli-ahli politik Melayu yang dianggapnya mengabaikan kepentingan bangsa kerana asyik bertelagah sesama sendiri, dan sanggup berdiri gagah menyanggah sesiapa saja termasuk pemimpin parti komponen BN yang mengancam kepentingan dan hak Bumiputera.

"MCA agaknya nak orang Melayu semua mampus baru mereka puas hati," kata-kata Pak Nik mengkritik Timbalan Presiden MCA, Dato' Lee KIm Sai di majlis perasmian minggu silaturrahim ITM Cawangan Perlis masih terngiang-ngiang di telinga penulis walapun ia berlaku lebih 22 tahun lalu. Dan janganlah pula cadangan ini dijadikan alasan untuk para pelajar UiTM dihasut sekali lagi untuk berdemonstrasi.-Tajdid.

"u listed almost if not all unis in malaysia, but what does "Others" represented by? (39.5%) despite having the headings "other public unis" and "private unis" as well."

somehow i expected u to say this..don't compare yourself to others man..just compare with the major local unis..

i don't know about others but i have had zero good experience or memories working with UiTM graduates..its not about their english language..its the attitude..they are really good forming their own little circle amongst themselves..boycotting the rest of the malay colleagues who are not with them..taking long smoking breaks..and whenever one of them got a negative comment from the boss they will have their little meeting at the staircase making racial remarks about others(my boss was a matsalleh)..doing all these while they hardly perform in their real job..and they are super good at complaining and giving reasons..somehow theres always someone or something else responsible for their mistakes..my ex boss has an interesting observation..he said if u hire an UitM student dun hire more than 1..the moment they start forming little teams amongst themselves the negativity seeps in..nobody understands why..but if u put them alone amongst other graduates they work just as well as others..so its not a racial thing..its just an attitude and mentality..

im a hiring employer now and most of my peers had problems with UiTM grads..they give up easily and whenever the bosses commented too much on their work they take it negatively and take it as a racial issue..

so i think its a good idea to have more non-bumis in UiTM..give them some experience with other races and quit that kampong mentality..its for their own good

Jeg said...

well there's no point generalising there. Tell that to your "fellow hiring employer" because as far as im concerned, I personally know a lot of exceptional students from my faculty.

The point I was making is will the people (especially the Malays) be ready for this change?

This kind of argument should see the impact it would make. Which will be more severe?

Simply put the Bar Council forum about Islamic conversion. While I see the merit of holding the forum between Islamic authorities and the Council, why made it PUBLIC?

Of course I support for change. But gradually. If closing vernacular schools would promote understandings among races, this is not a viable idea since it will only provoke the Chinese and Indians.

However I'm not saying it's something impossible to do. But taking away their rights will make them angry and so did the idea of UiTM to be opened to Non-Bumis.

I guess we always need time for a change according to the needs of the people. The Chinese still need Chinese Schools and so does the Indians.

The Malays still need the Malay rights especially the people from rural areas who are poor.

Will all this stay forever? No. Not good for long term. The system is somewhat perfect at the moment but only the people who misused it namely NEP, JPA scholarships etc.

It's like having a knife. Do you use it to chop onions or stab a drunken teenager in London?

Jeg said...

Ok lah Encik, let me ask you..

what is the proportion of Malay graduates be it local or overseas grads?

31%? Right?

So if UiTM is opened to Non-Bumis now, I'm sure the number will decrease.

Wahai Bumiputra sekalian, sedarlah sikit yang kita ini mungkin berjaya dan kaya-raya hidup senang-lenang. Tapi bagaimana dengan Bumiputra lain yang masih susah? Bumiputra di kampung-kampung khususnya. Bumiputra Sabah Sarawak bagaimana pula?

In fact, kamu senang sekarang bukankah kerana DEB di mana ayah atau datuk kamu menikmatinya dan kamu seterusnya?

Pegangan ekuiti Bumiputra dalam ekonomi mungkin hanya capai 20%. India mungkin 12% dan lain-lain adalah bakinya.

Komposisi Bumiputra adalah tertinggi iaitu 65% tetapi pegangan ekuiti rendah sekali...

So apa cerita nak kurangkan ekuiti Melayu lagi?

There's no fault with the system. It's the people misusing the system that we should bury. NOT the system as it should be working well at the moment.

It's not a racist system. We need to close the gap of economic power among races.

Selamat Hari Merdeka ke 51.

"Well, who cares about YOUR standards?"

If UiTM cared about standards, there wouldn't have been this hoo-ha to begin with.
