KUALA LUMPUR: The government has allocated RM900mil to build and improve facilities in schools under the Special Stimulus Package.

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Friday it was important to have complete infrastructure and good facilities to create a good atmosphere for teachers and students.

Muhyiddin who is also Education Minister, said RM500mil would be allocated for national schools while the remaining RM400mil was for vernacular, mission and religious schools.

Muhyiddin explained that the higher allocation for national-type schools did not mean that other schools were being sidelined.

"All the schools are important but national schools are the majority," he said.

A further RM87.1mil has also been allocated for the improvement of the surau in schools, which Muhyiddin said was a "pleasant surprise".

"This is part of the Government's efforts to improve the education system to produce quality and model individuals for the further progress of the country," he said.
