KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 12 — The National Education Policy Committee (JKD) today called on the public to submit their proposals on ways to improve the country’s education system.

JKD in a statement said they were in the midst of conducting a survey to gather the views of individuals, groups and institutions aimed at bringing changes to the Malaysian education system.

“The committee also held a series of meetings with stakeholders apart from engaging in face-to-face discussions, public dialogue sessions, briefings and lectures,” the statement said.
