KUALA LUMPUR: A panellist of the national education review board revealed that the soon-to-be launched national education blueprint will have short-term and long-term plans.
The first part of the blueprint would contain the short-term plan for the period 2013 to 2015 which would be implemented immediately.
This would form the backbone for the long-term plan which is for the period 2015 to 2025.
“Hopefully by 2020, our education system would be a world class. I’m very confident as it is a realistic and an achievable aim,” said the panellist who declined to be named.
“Whether it can be fulfilled 100 per cent or partially, it will still be a success.”
The blueprint is based on the feedback received from various non-governmental organisations, associations, institutions, educationists and the public following the Education Ministry’s three-month National Dialogue on Education.
This is the first time the government has gathered suggestions from stakeholders on a large scale on ways to enhance the education system.
He also said that the review would bring about a transformation of Malaysia’s 50-year-old education system, but that would not be a problem.
