MALAYSIAN STUDENTS REHEARSE PERFORMANCE IN PUTRAYAYA.
Students of the Putrajaya Secondary School rehearse a performance in
Putrajaya, near Kuala Lumpur August 12, 2002. The Islamic opposition in
Malaysia on Monday joined hands with Chinese educationists opposing the
government's controversial plan to reintroduce English in schools to
teach mathematics and science. Many Malays, Chinese and Indians fear
the move could undermine their own language schools and threaten their
ethnic identity. REUTERS/Bazuki Muhammad
