Education
 

Under the Constitution of Malaysia education comes under the purview of the Federal Government. The Minister of Education heads the Ministry of Education, which formulates national education policies. The implementation of the National Education Policy and all other decisions formulated at national level are the responsibility of the State Education Departments of each state.

A Director of Education heads each of the State Education Departments and they are answerable to the Director-General of Education. Schools are run by principals/headmasters who are answerable to their respective Directors of Education.

To streamline the administration of schools in the State, the Melaka State Education Department is divided into four main sectors. Each sector is headed by a Sector Head.

The four sectors are: -

  • The Academic Sector
  • The School Management Sector
  • The Human Resources Development Sector
  • The Education Service Management Sector

All schools in the State have Parent-Teacher Associations (PTA). The PTA serves as a link between schools and the community and involves the community in the education of their children.


National Education Philosophy

In Malaysia education is a continuous effort to develop individual potential in a general and integrated manner in order to create an intellectually, spiritually, physically and emotionally strong individual who believes in God.

This effort it is hoped will produce citizens who are knowledgeable, skilled, morally strong and responsible. A citizenry with these qualities will ensure the well being, racial harmony and prosperity of the nation.
