Making room for the poor in government residential schools


THE Education Ministry (MOE) recently announced their renewed commitment to the founding spirit of fully residential schools or sekolah berasrama penuh (SBP) as a mechanism to provide quality education and to counterbalance the socio-economic barriers faced by students from the B40 (lower income) strata in society.

This reflects the MOE’s commitment to equity as stated in the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025 which targets “to halve the current urban-rural, socio-economic, and gender achievement gaps by 2020”.
