Badawi:History should be compulsory subject in primary schools

The New Straits Times Online……

The prime minister yesterday proposed that history be made a compulsory subject in primary schools.
Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said a love for history must be instilled from young.

“Our youngsters have to be acquainted with history so that they will later understand and appreciate the sacrifices of those before them.

“There is a need to learn from history, otherwise we are likely to repeat the same mistakes,” he said at the opening of the Malaysian Historical Society’s RM20 million Wisma Sejarah.

Present were Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein; Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal and Malaysian Historical Society executive committee chairman Datuk Omar Mohd Hashim.
Abdullah also suggested making history a more exciting subject for students.

“I hope the Education Ministry can look into strengthening the existing curriculum for the subject.”
