PETALING JAYA: What do you think could have been addressed more clearly in the Malaysian Education Blueprint?
Would allowing choices for schooling options pave the way towards an ethnically homogeneous environment and a less egalitarian society?
These are some of the questions to be tackled by Pradeep Nair, deputy vice-chancellor of Taylor's University, in a public forum at 4pm at Menara Star tomorrow.
The forum titled “Does the Blueprint Mean Business?” would also feature Dr Habibah Rahim, one of the key persons behind the proposed blueprint which promises transformation of the education system.
Dr Habibah, who is from the Education Ministry's Project Manage-ment Office, will share her thoughts about the transformation proposed in the blueprint.
She is confident that the goals set are achievable as they are based on what is known from the current performance of the education system and the root causes that have led to the current level.
She will also talk about how the blueprint is different from previous policy and planning reports that have statements of intent, but not the initiatives, let alone targets and KPIs.
Other speakers are Bukit Jalil Sports School principal Datuk Marina Chin and Convent Bukit Nenas Parent-Teacher Association chairman Amiruddin Sahudi.
Admission is free but seats are limited.
For registration or more details, call 03-7967 1388 (ext 1835) or e-mail email@example.com.
The forum is an initiative under English for More Opportunities, which is part of The Star's ongoing efforts to highlight the importance of the language in helping people get ahead in life.
