Nazri Aziz: Dumbing down Malaysia


pix from here.

I know Nazri has been getting many brickbats. Frankly I haven't bothered to check if the brickbats were deserved.

I do know, however, that his head should be whacked very hard for coming out with the type of statement shown below.

I don't believe any further editorialising is necessary. The Latin phrase (which Nazri be familiar with, being an ex-lawyer and all, is res ipsa loquitor i.e. "the matter speaks for itself", because it is so obvious).

As reported, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz has defended the government’s plans to redeploy bright students to study locally instead of overseas, arguing that this could prevent a further “brain-drain” of talent.

“Sending overseas students causes brain-drain where some of them won’t want to come back".

"If you keep sending students overseas, when are we going to improve our standards (locally)?”
