I WAS asked by Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) to look at higher education in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic. I am not an educator. Perhaps they wanted a perspective of an “outsider” who is as passionate as anyone about education.
I WAS in the city of Ponorogo in East Java in February this year. Ponorogo is famous for its culture and tradition. People from that part of Java have migrated to Peninsular Malaysia, with many settling in Johor and Perak.
