  • • The education facilities is improved. • There would be an equal treatment for all the language stream. • There would be a stress on the study of Mathematics, Science and Technical • The Malay language would be made the national Language. • A large-scale of teacher recruitment was carried out to increase the number of teaching professionals and teachers-in-training
  • • The PAP government made the bilingualism policy compulsory in education. The bilingualism policy made the primary school students learn English and their Mother Tongue. Learning English would enable them to communicate in the future as English is the universal language. Learning their Mother Tongue would allow the students maintain their ethnic roots and not let it vanish.

It will always change so that it can meet the demand of the changing world • Education helps improve social relation among different racial communities
