The vision of 1Malaysia is to have a Malaysia to be a nation whose people have enriched their lives through the pursuit and positive application of knowledge. A life-long education process that takes place in and outside of the classroom will produce Malaysians who are able to think and act less selfishly – and more for the community in which they live.
Education and knowledge are important prerequisites for any nation to succeed and throughout history, we have realised that the only empires that have survived are the empires of the mind, particularly in the present context.
An empire built on military strength alone has never survived and cannot survive. So when we talk about education and knowledge, it must be seen in a holistic context. It must be integrated with values as well. We must have a society that places education and knowledge at the apex of everything.
