it doesn't work that way.remember the first two laws on political power. one needs money, another want to stay in power.so here is the deal: i get your money through education sponsorship/scholarship and you get to create your cronies/supporters/bureacrats from all these baited students. i need the money to fuel my economies and to support my social welfare programs.
hmm..have you read the article "why mahathir failed..."?

Malaysia needs more scientists
I WOULD like to share my opinion on the recent university intake issue.
The nation is extremely proud that the number of straight-A students has increased again. This means that our students are serious about their education and future.
But it is rather sad to hear that so many high flyers were not able to get courses of their choice. Perhaps the mistake was theirs as they may have applied for courses they were less qualified for.
However, I feel students should not be penalised just because there are not enough places for certain demanding courses in our public education system. That will be a really demotivating factor as it will discourage our students from striving for excellence. After all, who would want to slog at their studies if success in examinations offered no reward?
We are definitely on the side of the Government when it comes to meritocracy but the current system of admitting students into public universities based on two very different yardsticks -- namely the STPM and matriculation -- needs some review.
There should only be one yardstick to evaluate and benchmark students in the public examination system and one examination council to ensure the quality of students in the intake for the public universities.
Perhaps there should be interviews for entry into critical courses like law and medicine to ensure that applicants really deserve to be offered places for such courses in the universities.
This system is already being implemented in the United States and the United Kingdom.
Society should also do away with the idea that only doctors, engineers and lawyers are glamorous professions. As our country moves towards developed nation status, we actually lack scientists more than any other professionals. Research may, in the long run, prove to be even more noble and rewarding than the ?traditional? professions. However, this can only succeed if the government takes the initiative to promote R&D activities.
msia's education system already fused/rojak/mixed with politics, there is nothing that young recomers can do at this present....wanna fix education system?
fix msia politics first. separate executive,judiciary and legislative.made them independent of one another.more accountabilities and transparencies on usage of public funds.
oh..yeah!sure!..wait a minute!?u forget the first two laws on political powers?...so no go!

Minister in the Prime Minister?s Department Nazri Abdul Aziz has now come out to admit that there is no separation of powers in the various branches of the Malaysian government, namely the judiciary, the legislative and the executive.
Finally, no more sandiwara, no more hiding behind lies that the judiciary decides what it wills and that the judges are independent and without bias.
In Nazri's eyes and that of the Barisan Nasional government, separation of powers is ?too idealistic?. I presume that in his political ideology, the executive holds the ultimate and supreme power and only then can ?national security? be assured in our country.
Such a statement from the government shows both its insecurity and lack of respect for the constitution of Malaysia besides lacking an understanding of the parliamentarian system of democracy.
The whole idea of having separation of powers in the legislative, judiciary and executive is so that there are checks and balances. What Nazri has confirmed is that in Malaysia, the executive has absolute influence over the judiciary - and obviously the legislative with a majority in parliament.
That means that it does what it wills with no accountablity to anyone. The rakyat has long believed this to be the case as seen during the Mahathir years when mega projects and policies were implemented hastily and without due diligence resulting in cronyism and corruption.
I have always wondered what national security means in Malaysia and have, in fact, come up with my own definition.
National security means the security of the Barisan Nasional government and any threat to national security would naturally mean a threat to the ruling coalition. This is parliamentary democracy a la Malaysia.
Thank you, Nazri, for clarifying and confirming our suspicion that there is no, and has never been, any separation of powers in Malaysia.
