The new 2027 school curriculum aims to produce students who practice a balanced lifestyle in all aspects, can cultivate lifelong learning, value racial unity and harmony and can develop healthy social relationships.

Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek said when delivering her speech on the 2027 school curriculum on Wednesday (Dec 6) that it would also be inclusive and ensure no one was left behind.

She said the new curriculum would combine the currently used standards-based curriculum and a competency-oriented curriculum used in Singapore, Finland and Canada, where there would be set targets that must be achieved by students in certain knowledge, skills and values at a certain level, and at the same time, promote active student learning, providing a more authentic and meaningful learning and assessment experience.
