Bring back autonomy to varsities, cry academics
Several academicians called for greater autonomy for universities at a forum last night, in order to put a halt to the deteriorating quality of education.
This autonomy would need to be extended beyond these tertiary institutes managing their own administrative and financial affairs, said sociologist Abdul Rahman Embong.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
