KUALA LUMPUR: A module on integrity and corruption prevention will be included in three subjects at primary and secondary schools next year.
The suggestion by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) listed religious, civic and moral education as the three subjects will teach students values such as honesty, trustworthiness, sincerity and integrity.
MACC has also discussed with the Teachers Education Institute on establishing 27 corruption prevention secretariats at the teacher training centres, across the nation.
This secretariat will enable a smoother teaching and learning process on integrity and corruption prevention and provide teachers with the full support needed. With this module, students will be moulded to become excellent human capital.
The emphasis on integrity is an attempt to nip corruption in the bud, especially in preventing students from engaging in corrupt practices when they start working.
MACC had discussed the proposal with the Education Ministry’s Curriculum Division.
The proposal was presented to the Education Ministry in June.
