No Money For Scholarship?

800 straight A students had their application for Public Services Department scholarship rejected. (theStar reports yesterday)

Every year we hear this kind of rubbish from the Barisan National government, they tell you that their priority is to develop human capital and they talk about uplifting the quality of education in this country.

These are our brightest and the future of the nation and should be given the best education opportunity available as they will be the foundation towards the future of our nation.

Why are we having such difficulty and creating a so much dissapointment and stress for these students and their families? Are we short of money? Don't have enough funds? If that is so than just downsize some of the mega projects like the multi billion underground cable project from Bakun.

And i don't understand this distribution formulas of scholarship, what criteria? what ethnic quota? Oh yeah and the best part is only 10% of scholarship goes to the undrprivilege! Can't afford to give all our straight A students a good scholarship?

Thought we have been sending people to outer space and now we can't afford to send our brightest students to universities?
