THE Dual-Language Programme (DLP) should be implemented in all schools now that Putrajaya has decided against reviving the teaching of science and mathematics in English, said an education activist.

Parent Action Group for Education Malaysia (Page) chairman Noor Azimah Abdul Rahim said DLP, which allows schools to teach the two subjects in English if there is support for it, will let students have a say in the matter.
