Weightage of mother tongues in PSLE

It is good that the government has clarified that the weightage of mother tongues in the Primary School Leaving Examinations will not be cut down. While it is true that most of the primary school students these days are more conversant in English, it is imperative that our future leaders master their mother tongues. With the rapid rise of China and India as the major engines of the global economy and Singapore being located in the Muslim neighbourhood, it will only stand us in good stead, socially and economically if our future leaders master their mother tongues competently.
