Melisa Idris and Sharaad Kuttan of Astro Awani speak to the policy officer for former Education Minister Maszlee Malik, Liew Suet Li.

What does education reform look like from the inside and how do the three teams – policy, politics, communication – work in tandem? (see video above)

Despite the work for kickstarting institutional reforms, to the setting up of independent taskforces – the National Education Review, Technical and Vocational Education and Training, and the Universities and University Colleges Act, Maszlee Malik’s legacy looks set to be remembered for minor controversies. (see video below)

What are the pressures on the civil service and the politicians that lead them? Is it a lack of capable people; is it a lack for time to properly implement policies; or is it our complex society with its divergent demands? (see video below)
