The government plans on introducing a Rukun Negara syllabus into the national education system.
According to National Unity Minister Datuk Halimah Mohd Sadique, the Education Ministry (MOE) and Higher Education Ministry (MOHE) are studying to create subjects formed on the basis of the Rukun Negara or the Malaysian National Principles, in schools, particularly on the primary and secondary levels.
The subject would focus on teaching students about civic responsibility to the nation as well as the nation’s laws and governance.
The minister said that the Malaysian society needed to be educated on how to better understand and respect each other and strengthen national unity.
The government had made a recent push to glorify the Rukun Negara in honor of its 50-year anniversary taking place from July till September together with the upcoming 62nd Merdeka Day celebration.
Previously, the Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal mentioned that a specially designed Rukun Negara school syllabus was being drafted aimed at creating political awareness and exposing young people to the nation’s democratic and governmental processes.
Additionally, the government had also announced plans on reintroducing an updated version of the discontinued National Service Training Programme (PLKN).
