KUALA LUMPUR: The Government is drafting a new curriculum for the History subject and text books based on recommendations made by a special committee, especially for secondary school level, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Muhyiddin Yassin.
"It is a big task and the reports have been forwarded to me. We hope to carry out the necessary implementations within our time frame," said Muhyiddin, who is also the Education Minister, in his opening remarks during the Malaysian Historical Society annual general meeting here Thursday.
It was reported that the special committee was set up to look into the content of the History curriculum and secondary school to ensure that it will be able to nurture patriotism and loyalty to the country among students.
