5,000 East Coast Students Attend TN50 Programme
KUANTAN, Nov 8 – Having single-stream school system as a unity tool, free education for all students, focusing on mental health issues especially among youths were among proposals and aspirations raised among 5,000 East Coast students at the National Transformation 2050 (TN50) Dialogue.
In the three-hour dialogue session with Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh and Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, the students also suggested that opportunities in education be equally distributed to all the races.
Idris said all the views and aspirations of the students would be taken into account in formulating new government policies.
“We see that the students want our country to be a developed and united nation and all races be treated fairly. We will take all these into consideration as they will be the ones living in this country in 2050,” he told reporters after the dialogue session at Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) here tonight.
Also present were UMP Vice-Chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Daing Nasir Ibrahim, staff and students of higher education institutions in the east coast.
