KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 14 ― Former deputy prime minister Tun Musa Hitam said today national education policies should not be determined by politicians or political parties, and should instead involve parents, education professionals and students themselves.
Musa, during the closing ceremony of the World Islamic Economy Forum (WIEF) Young Fellows 2012 here today, said allowing politics to dictate education guidelines only serves to muddy the direction and goals of the nation.
“National education policies and foundations should not be determined by any politician or political party as it involves the country’s future.
“If this continues without any drastic action, then I believe the future will be very bleak,” Musa said, without referencing anyone.
He added that the planning and implementation of policies in education must include everyone, regardless of their race and religious backgrounds.
