MOE to bring back civics subject, introduce anti-corruption topic at preschools



The Education Ministry will reintroduce Civics subject which include a topic on anti-corruption at all schools beginning middle of next year.

Minister Maszlee Malik said elements of anti-corruption would also be introduced at preschools as part of the syllabus to inculcate good values.

Apart from anti-corruption, other elements that would be inculcated among the students were on human rights, road safety and environmental awareness.

“We don’t have specific subject on anti-corruption, so what we are going to do is to include it as one of the topics in the Civics subject, which we will reintroduce.

“It is not going to be a must-pass subject, but it will be a compulsory subject to take,” he told reporters after opening the MACC-Education Ministry Consensus Forum in Putrajaya today.

He said this in response to MACC chief commissioner Mohd Shukri Abdull’s proposal for anti-corruption to be made a compulsory or core subject at schools.
