An Education System Worthy of Malaysia

By M Bakri Musa

New York: Writers Club Press, 2003. Reprint. Paperback. New. It's a sad truth that politicians everywhere love meddling in education and, as a result, standards of education suffer. Malaysia is no different. In an attempt to map out an education system that will not only equip students for effective future careers, but also be the centre point for the mutually supportive multiculturalism that Malaysia needs, the author, a seasoned commentator on Malaysian affairs, makes a constructive plea for change. He bases his arguments on comparative studies of education systems elsewhere. 307 pages. Please see the scan of the contents page for further details. Weight: 0.6kg. Post free within Malaysia
