  • The Education Ministry is planning a total revamp of the education system to promote a global mindset.
  • A team has been set up to prepare a report on the proposed review expected to be tabled for approval to the Cabinet by the end of this year.
  • The revamp came after Malaysia's education system was reported to be not on par with other developed nations.
  • The last revamp of the education system of Malaysia was the 1956 Razak Report.
  • Changes in curriculum content, infrastructure, learning and teaching process and quality of teaching have been made in the past but they were only on piecemeal basis.


  • The president of the Sarawak Teachers Union (STU) suggested that Malaysia's education system should partner with overseas education institutions to produce human capital with a global mindset.
  • Countries to learn from are said to be the USA, the UK and China.
  • The president of STU added that the revamp could begin with sending headmasters overseas for study tours and workshops to further understand the education system of developed nations.
