Implementing Education Agenda Should Not Rest Wholly With Schools, Teachers – Raja Nazrin

IPOH: The responsibily of implementing a more holistic education agenda should not rest wholly with the schools and teachers, said the Raja Muda of Perak, Raja Dr Nazrin Shah.

He said general participation was needed in implementing the education agenda which encompassed the physical and spiritual development of human capital.

“The education agenda would not be complete and perfect if its implementation fully rests with schools and teachers. Parents, families, the community and various institutions should also play their part in this.”

Raja Nazrin said this at the presentation of awards for excellence in conjunction with the Day of Excellence for Fully Residential Schools, here, today.

In this respect, he said the on-going National Dialogue on National Education 2012 was inclusive by encouraging public participation, which was a wise move as it was in line with the spirit voiced out by the prime minister “that the era of the government knowing all has passed”.

Therefore, Raja Nazrin said, public participation, especially from among the younger generation, in the national dialogue was important for the government to obtain expansive and relevant feedback to shape the future of the nation and its citizens.
