Seeds of Separatism:
Educational Policy in Malaya, 1874-1940
Philip Loh Fook Seng
Malaya inherited a four school system from the British on independence, i.e. systems based on the Malay, Chinese, Tamil and English languages. This fulfilled the concept of a plural society where disparate parts of society existed side by side without much common social purpose. This system reflected society as a whole where Malays, Chinese, Tamils and Eurasians generally filled certain jobs in which members of other communities hardly participated. In this study, based on the former Federated States of Perak, Selangor Negeri Sembilan and Pahang, Loh examines how the system operated and extrapolates the effect on the Malaysia of the future.
