2016: Anjakan G2 PPPM 2016-2020

imageTahun 2015 bakal melabuh tirai. 5 bulan pertama saya menerajui KPM; memahami Dasar dan Polisi, mengenali serta menjalin hubungan positif dengan pihak pengurusan dan pentadbiran dan menyusuri setiap isu-isu utama pendidikan. Beberapa langkah proaktif telah dibuat sebagai langkah pertama untuk perlaksanaan menyeluruh.

Tahun 2016 bagi saya adalah tahun permulaan untuk memperkasakan Pelan Pembangunan Pendidikan Malaysia 2013-2025, khususnya bagi mengerakkan anjakan Gelombang ke-2 PPPM 2016-2020 (G2PPPM2016-2020).

Dalam konteks G2PPPM tersebut, di antara fokus utamanya ialah menjurus kepada peningkatan professionalisme pendidik dengan mengambil kira pandangan daripada guru-guru sendiri, meningkatkan akses pendidikan serta inklusif kepada semua kumpulan dan peningkatan kecekapan pengurusan serta pentadbiran. Objektifnya ialah sudah pasti bagi meningkatkan kualiti pendidikan di negara kita.

Saya akui banyak cabaran yang akan kita hadapi terutama yang melibatkan kepentingan golongan pendidik itu sendiri yang menjadi pemangkin utama. Justeru, beberapa langkah awal yang telah diambil sebelum ini dalam menangani isu “Duka Lara”, kepelbagaian tugas/tanggungjawab guru, prasarana sekolah, keselesaan dan keselamatan akan pelajar tetap diberi perhatian berterusan untuk penambahbaikan.

Setiap cabaran mempunyai tahap penyelesaian yang berbeza dan mengambil tempoh masa tertentu untuk diselesaikan. Oleh itu, saya berharap agar semua pihak tetap bertindak professional dan tidak menjadikan cabaran itu sebagai halangan.

Semoga dengan bermulanya sesi persekolahan 2016 ini, kita tetap bersama-sama berusaha memperbaiki kelemahan dan menambahbaik kekurangan yang timbul. Selamat Tahun Baharu 2016!

2015 has been an eventful year for me, as I was given the responsibility to spearhead an organization that shapes the future of the nation – the Ministry of Education. The first few months was spent on understanding the vision and mission of education that has been clearly outlined in the Malaysia Education Blueprint (MEB) 2013-2025, learning the foundations and policies and at the same time building a positive relationship in order to establish the trust within the education fraternity.

The first three years of the implementation of the Blueprint were not without its challenges but I firmly believe that we have set a solid foundation for us to move towards Wave 2 implementation. In Wave 1 the focus was to turn around system by supporting
teachers and focusing on core skills. This we have managed to accomplish through the concerted effort of all stakeholders. In order to accelerate system improvement in Wave 2, we will continue to enhance the professionalism of all in the education fraternity, from the Ministry’s leadership to increasing the involvement of parents, community and private sector in establishing a learning system within the society. Capability building will be at the heart of the transformation efforts to achieve both system and student aspirations outlined in the Blueprint.

To develop students who are best-prepared to meet the challenges of a 21st century economy in this rapidly globalising world, we continue to increase the quality of our teachers. This year I personally have dealt with issues to ensure that teachers remain focused on their responsibility to educate our young. The Ministry will continue to address issues such as lessening the unnecessary burden for teachers, alleviating the suffering of those who are separated from their spouses due to job placements or what I fondly refer to as ‘duka lara’ cases, improving school infrastructures, ensuring the comfort and safety of students and placing high-performing leaders in every school and education institutions.

The Ministry acknowledges that one size does not fit all and as proven in Wave 1, targeted interventions have helped to resolve issues in different contexts. The education transformation is a journey that we have to undergo together, as one big family. As stated in the MEB – the only way to ensure that the Malaysian education system continues to be relevant in a constantly changing world is to integrate a spirit of innovation and creativity into the system itself. It is only through this collective effort and transformation on the part of every single stakeholder can the Malaysian education system become truly able to tackle the ever-changing challenges of the 21st century.

Happy New Year 2016 Malaysia!
