“Research is to see what everybody else sees, and think what nobody else has thought.”
The above was said by Hungarian biochemist, Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, who first isolated vitamin C.
I, Luqman Michel, have thought and seen what no one else in the world has seen or thought. The Caucasians have a problem even understanding it.
I started teaching so-called dyslexic kids in 2004 and was curious as to why almost all my students could read in Malay but not in English.
I then decided to do ‘research’ and have observed more than 70 so-called dyslexic kids who were all instructional casualties.
I have thought what nobody else has thought because I am in a unique position where I saw kids able to read in Malay and Romanised Mandarin which the Americans, British and Australians unfortunately, have had not the opportunity, nor will they ever have the opportunity to experience, their countries being what they are i.e. their peoples speaking only English, generally.
Also, the Caucasians are promoting false facts because of their EGOs and vested interests. With the internet these people are able to undermine truth itself.
EGOs– the so-called educators, like David Boulton, Timothy Shanahan, Andrew Johnson and many others have told me off because they believe in their own lies and cannot accept the facts from a coloured guy (Malaysian Indian) with no title behind his name. They keep asking for credentials as if that is the only thing that matters.
Where has the common sense of a majority of the Caucasians gone?
Vested interests – most of the educators on LinkedIn are there to sell their ‘wares’ and are not interested in eradicating illiteracy. Wolves in sheep’s clothing I must say is what they really are. I will post separate articles on this.
Most schools around the world are teaching the pronunciation of phonemes wrongly and this is the main reason why kids shut down from learning to read. Once the correct phonemes are taught these shut-down kids will all be able to read fluently and become top students in schools.
Unfortunately, many have begun to treat some of these so-called educators as their ‘Gods of education’ and believe everything they utter. [If only they (the followers) knew the truth, they would call them (the so-called educators) “Wolves of Education”!]. Things like ‘We don’t have empirical evidence to support that consonants should not be taught with extraneous sounds’. (Timothy Shanahan) is believed by the followers, lock, stock and barrel. Did their brains go on a hike or what?
AND the stupid remark by David Boulton “Children of the Code avoided advocating solutions so as not to be dismissed as having an agenda other than learning deeper into the challenge.”
It has been 15 years since the project started and how much longer do they need?
Listen to my YouTube here and decide for yourselves if teachers are teaching the pronunciation of consonants correctly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGGr4uyFdn4
