My comments : Science, Maths and English teachers from Saudi Arabia?
Pak Arab English teachers ??
There is no science in Saudi Arabia.
300 scholarships for Malaysian undergraduates to study in Saudi Arabia?
To prepare for the 21st century educational system?
What is wrong with this dunggu fellow?
What is wrong with Dr Mahathir?
Wikipedia says education in Saudi Arabia is ranked 145 out of 200 countries. I think Wiki[edia is being generous.
Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index, ranked Saudi Arabia 80th out of 180 countries. I think Transparency International is being biased TOWARDS Saudi Arabia.
In Press Freedom Saudi Arabia is ranked 163 out of 167 countries. (Because once in a while they murder and chop up journalists.)
Their democracy index is ranked about 160++ out of 167 countries.
Out of a population of about 30+ million, almost NINE million are foreigners, working in Saudi Arabia.
All the important technical and engineering jobs in Saudi Arabia are actually done by foreign expats (from India, Pakistan, Egypt etc.)
Not by Saudis.
Unemployment in Saudi Arabia is now 10% or more.
The Saudi Air Force is flown by many Pakistani pilots.
The Saudi Royal family body guard are made up of Pakistani soldiers.
There are TWO school systems in Saudi Arabia.
One is the government school for Saudis.
The other is the private schools for children of the NINE million expatriates living in Saudi Arabia.
Here is some “trivia” about Saudi education :
The Philosophy of Saudi Education
Education Based on the Teachings of Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Abd Al-Wahhab
Spreading Wahabism throughout the World
From an early age, schoolchildren are taught about Jihad
That the Whole World Should Convert to Wahabism
Exporting the Saudi Education System – Spreading Wahabism throughout the world is emphasized on numerous occasions in the official Saudi document authored by the Higher Committee for Educational Policy.
For example, students are taught: “to plant and spread the Wahabi Islamic creed, and that “preaching of Islam throughout the world … is the duty of the state and its citizens.
The Saudi curriculum also educates students on the importance of “propagating Wahabism in all areas of our globe . ..”
So now these people are going to come here ??
Nauzubillah. May Allah save us.
