Thank you, World Bank. This report underscores the pervasive lack of political will of the ruling coalition to address the perennial issue of quality education. One obvious answer to this is for each of the 13 states in Malaysia to have complete autonomy over its own education system. Autonomy would be especially beneficial for the state of Sarawak which is rich in natural resources, but continues to be the second poorest state in Malaysia and its youth continue to leave in droves to seek employment in other states. Autonomy will give Sarawak the freedom to stay the course to a high performing education system and to create growth of high value jobs in the state. The policies of the Federal government will continue to suppress Sarawak's progress.
