KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak hopes the country’s standard of education will become among the best globally Â through changes that are currently being undertaken by the government.
He said the government, through the Malaysian Educational Development Plan Â 2013-2025 being implemented at present, was aimed at transforming the nationalÂ education system.
“This is to produce individuals who are more creative, capable of thinkingÂ and have the ability to compete in a world that is increasingly more
competitive,” he said via his radio broadcast in his blog www.najibrazak.comÂ here today.
Najib said the government realised the country’s educational system neededÂ to be continually improved to produce knowledgeable individuals who were ethicalÂ and had the competitive edge.
“In our country’s history, in 1996, when as the Education Minister, I haveÂ made a big reshuffle to the country education system, among them was to allowÂ for the expansion of the private sector’s role.
“I hope with the changes now taking place by the government, the standard ofÂ education, especially in the national schools will be much better and among theÂ best in the world,” he added.Â —BERNAMA
