Where Is Malaysia's Public Education System Heading?

The Education Ministry recently announced an intervention curriculum for Standard 1 students to prepare them for the expected 2027 school curriculum, that emphasises mastering literacy and numeracy. This comes as the state of Malaysian education comes under intense scrutiny following the impact of the pandemic and the abolition of the Dual Language Programme. Datin Noor Azimah Abdul Rahim, Chair of the Parent Action Group For Education (PAGE) Malaysia helps us understand the issues at hand.
