Ministry feeling the squeeze

Heavy responsiblity: Dr Maszlee is fast realising that heading the Education Ministry is not only a mammoth task but also one that is often embroiled in political drama.

IT must now have dawned on Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik that he sits in a hot seat. A role as university lecturer is a different ball game altogether from heading an entire ministry.

Previously, there was the Higher Education Ministry, which oversaw the higher institutions of learning, and the Education Ministry, tasked with looking after schools. Now, everything is housed under a single ministry.
