HISTORY OFMalaysia Education Blueprint

The Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025 was formed to evaluate the performance of Malaysia's current education system with considerations of historical starting points against international benchmarks.

The Blueprint also offers future visions of the Malaysian education system, factors that aim to raise student aspirations, and strategic and operational shifts required to achieve this vision.

In October 2011, the Ministry of Education launched a comprehensive review of Malaysia’s education system in order to develop the National Blueprint. Over the course of 15 months (Oct 2011 -Dec 2012), the ministry drew on many sources of input, from education experts at UNESCO, World Bank, OECD, and six local universities, to principals, teachers, parents, students, and members of the public from across the nation.

The current education transformation plan aims to raise Malaysian students to an international education standard, increase public and parental expectations of the national education policy, and prepare Malaysian children for challenges of the 21st century.
