Many Students Not Knowledgeable In History Despite Scoring 'A' In Exams - Professor Emeritus Tan Sri Dr Khoo Kay Kim

Bernama: The renowned academician said many of them not only failed to appreciate but also failed to learn about the country's fascinating history. [...]

Khoo also lamented that today's examination and result-oriented education system had changed the way students were being educated, where many of them studied by memorising and not learning by understanding. [...]

"Many schoolchildren just memorise essays because they can more or less spot the topics that will come out (in the examinations)," he said.

Khoo said teachers should also re-evaluate their role and be effective educators who could work with students to develop their minds instead of just helping them to score 'A' in the examinations.

"I hope our education can help the young to know more about the country, to love the country and be able to do more good for the country," he added. Well said, Professor Emeritus Tan Sri Dr Khoo Kay Kim.
