In a recent OECD report, “Universal Basic Skills: What Countries Stand to Gain,” which ranked countries based on basic literacy and numeracy skills of their 15 year olds, Malaysia ranked 52 out of 76 countries assessed.
The Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013 – 2025 states that in wave 3 or beginning in 2021 there will be “…greater school-based management and autonomy around curriculum implementation and budget management for most, if not all schools.” Why do we need to wait another 6 years to bring in a good education system? Why do Trust Schools get autonomies no other schools get?
When will the country and the Ministry of Education get serious about education reform?
Why does the federal government still make all the decisions about our children’s education – even after all these failures and setbacks?
What if we decentralised now and gave schools their autonomy today?
Empowering schools to do what is best for their students and placing the power and control back with parents so they can be actively involved in their child’s education rather than it be controlled by a central authority who has never interacted with their child.
Join IDEAS in a conversation on decentralising the Malaysian education system.
