All school meals should be free for everyone, not just breakfast

Published:  |  Modified:

COMMENT | Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is now the acting Education Minister, has decided to continue with the free breakfast programme for national schools that was introduced by former minister Maszlee Malik.

It is no secret that Mahathir was not in favour of the programme previously.

However, he has said that priority will be given for the students who can't afford breakfast.

He added that it wouldn’t be fair if every student were to receive the free breakfast because the wealthy and rich students would have already eaten at home.

Mahathir’s explanation may sound logical and reasonable...
