Views: 238

In the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP), government aims to develop a knowledge-based economy to create a competitive and resilient workforce with high moral values.

Accordingly, education at all levels from primary school to tertiary will be focussing on building knowledge and skills in science and technology. To enhance the quality of teachers, the teacher-training curriculum would be reviewed to improve subject content, enhance pedagogical skills and enable greater application of information communications technology (ICT) in education. Special education for children with special needs and learning disabilities will also be increased in national schools.  Rural schools will be given greater attention. A National Advisory Council on Education and Training would be set up soon to guide policies and strategies related to education and industrial training.
