What would it take for national schools to be first choice?

Should Malaysians be restricted from attending international schools? This is coming from an argument that having more children attend international schools results in our education system being divided along racial lines.

BFM speaks to Prof Tajuddin Mohd Rasdi, an education activist and professor of architecture at UCSI; and Shahnaz Al-Sadat, chairperson of LeapEd Services. They discuss the impact of more people sending their kids to international schools, particularly in how it shapes our national identity. And then, how do our national schools need to change and improve in order to compete?
