NATIONAL RELIGIOUS SECONDARY SCHOOLS

INTRODUCTION

The history of the national religious secondary school began with the acquisition of 11 state and people's religious schools by the Ministry of Education in 1977. From 11 schools, the number has now grown to 55.

The initial idea of establishing the national religious secondary school was proposed by the then Director of the Religious Division of the Ministry of Education, the late Haji Nik Mohammed Mohyideen bin Haji Wan Musa. Indeed this had been the intention of the Ministry of Education as well as the desire of the Islamic community who was aware of the benefits. Prior to that, several measures had been taken to provide assistance to people's religious schools and to recommend that the schools adopt the new system.

Establishment of the national religious secondary school was in line with the modernisation efforts of the national education system and the process of improving the Islamic education system in religious schools was consistent with current developments. Thus, the idea of the late Haji Nik Mohyideen Bin Haji Wan Musa was realised by Tan Sri Dato' Paduka Dr Abdul Hamid bin Othman and Dato' Zainal Abidin bin Haji Abdul Kadir.

In the 1970's, the people's religious secondary school was not well received because of its unorganised administration system and lack of infrastructure. At the same time, public awareness of education was increasing. Therefore the Ministry of Education consulted with the state governments in Peninsular Malaysia that the religious school adopted the administrative system and curriculum of the regular secondary school.

Previously many religious schools emphasised only on Islamic Studies and Arabic without giving attention to other subjects taught in national secondary schools such as Science, Mathematics and Geography. This phenomenon was due to the religious schools not being able to provide laboratories which were expensive. Consequently, those with religious school education found it difficult to compete in the human resource market and to face the challenges of contemporary society.
