By DK RYNI QAREENA

KOTA KINABALU: The nation’s education will undergo massive changes by the year 2050 which will see it as the most significant system in determining the nation’s direction.

Education director-general Datuk Dr. Amin Senin said the pattern of changes in education began before the colonization and post-independence that focused on local and Malaysian-based curriculum.

Today, he said, the country aspires to develop competitive education system which calls for a huge leap in terms of policy, implementation and achievement assessment whereby a ‘glocal approach’ plays a crucial role.

“Nation’s education towards TN50 focusing on world class quality needs to be comprehended in order for us to transform education delivery.

“To ensure the success of second Malaysia Education Development Plan wave by the end of 2020, I urge for your roles to be expanded especially in rural schools.

“I am sure with your cooperation we will realise the National Education Philosophy to produce educated, competent and ethical Malaysians who will contribute to the harmony of families, society and the nation.”

This, he said, was in line with the country’s vision National Transformation 2050 that maps and charts Malaysia towards a more inclusive direction.

“In moving towards the National Transformation 2050, the timeline from 2016 to 2050 has been mapped. “In 2016, the TN50 vision was first announced. Next, Malaysia will become an advanced country with high income advanced economy.

“In 2025, economic and trade value would be at RM2 trillion, followed by the Fourth Industrial Revolution which will start to bring significant impact in 2030.

“Finally, 2050 will see the beginning of a superior civilization and Malaysia will rise to be among the top 20 best and most advanced countries in the world.”

His speech was delivered by State Education Department director Datuk Maimunah Suhaibul during the Department’s 2017 Anugerah Perkhidmatan Cemerlang here yesterday.

A total of 193 officers under the department and 15 staffers of Education Technology Division received recognitions for their outstanding achievements in their respective fields for the year 2017.

In his speech, Amin underlined three major traits that must be possessed by educators namely Unquestional Integrity, High Level Competency and Humility.

“I urge officers in Sabah Education Department to lead changes supporting one another and make use of existing resources optimally and eventually enhance the impacts of educational programme.

“Educators should move forward as a united, dynamic and progressive team to become a pillar of national transformation as a whole.”

Also present were State Education Department deputy director Datuk Dr. Mohd. Kassim Mohd. Ibrahim and head of the humanitarian development sector, Ir Datu Jamigul Datu Salin.
