This presentation is about the Malaysian education policy to integrate its multiethnic society in order to achieve the vision of a Bangsa Malaysia (A Malaysian Nation). At the primary level, National Schools (SK) are designed to play the role of encouraging interaction between the different ethnic groups. However the presence of other types of schools, particularly the Chinese Schools (SJKC) and Tamil Schools (SJKT) has caused constraints for the National Schools to attract pupils other than the Malays, namely the Chinese and the Indians. Efforts by the government to strengthen National Schools are found in the Education Development Master Plan 2006-2010 (EDMP). However the cultural needs of various ethnic groups is not seriously considered in the EDMP.
