The above
graph shows that the Malay/Muslim community has been unable to break the 60
percent pass rate in PSLE Standard Math for the past 20 years. It is a stark
reminder of the failure of the Muslim community, regardless of ethnicity, in tackling
an issue where there are so many qualified professionals in the education industry.

Have we not
put in a lot of effort to solve this issue? Yes, we have. However, if you spend
your life trying to push down a strong wall, although you may have used lots of
energy and resources, according to Science, no work is done because the wall has
not moved. Effort is not in question
here. What should be questioned is why after 20 years of substantial effort and
millions of dollars spent on educational programmes by our community, why has the
60 percent wall not move upwards?

To
understand why, you must be able to answer an important question. If you are
unable to do so, you are in the dark as to how to break the PSLE Math glass
ceiling for the Malay/Muslim community. The question is as follows:

*Why do very weak learners in Math display a tendency to forget the correct ways of solving Math sums although they have just been taught the correct strategies and they have even demonstrated that they could correctly solve Math sums during class time?*

In order
words, when you teach such weak learners an advanced Math concept, he
understands it today and can show you the right way to answer the Math
question. At this stage, if you think you have achieved your objective, you are
mistaken. Test the student again a week later and he fails to solve similar
questions. Why does this happen? Why does he forget the correct strategies? Unwise
teachers and tutors complain and even scold such students, blaming them for a
phenomenon that is only natural and logical. This is because such teachers and
tutors do not know the answer the above question. For as long as you do not know
the answer to the above question, you can daydream about breaking the PSLE Math
glass ceiling for the Malay/Muslim community. This has been the case for the
last 20 years.

So, do you know the answer? If you want to know the answer, it is too long to
explain here. Watch my videos below.
