Abstract

Unity has always been an issue to a multiracial country like Malaysia. Unity is important to ensure the optimum productivity in a country, whether in economics, politics, education or social. Everyone plays a role and is interdependent of each other. Education is considered as the most effective bridge to unity. By having a common medium of instruction is another way to unite students. Schools are supposed to use national language as the medium of instruction so that national identity could be built. Moreover, students are expected to attend the same school, preferably national schools so that they could integrate better among each other. Lastly through providing equal opportunity and access to learning and moving up the social ladder is another means to unity that education can provide. Students are given equal opportunity to enrol to schools since Malaysia offers free education through our national schools. In line with that, Malaysia has produced an education development plan that highlighted unity in its educational aspiration, namely Pelan Pembangunan Pendidikan (PPPM).

Keywords: Malaysia, Pelan Pembangunan Pendidikan, unity among students, medium of instructions
