No need for Islamic or Moral studies tests in UPSR

The Star
KUALA LUMPUR: There is no necessity to make Islamic Studies and Moral Studies a core UPSR subject, Deputy Education Minister Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi told the Dewan Rakyat.He said on Thursday that requiring students to pass the two subjects would not guarantee that they would practise what they learned from them.“Character development and good moral values can be imparted more effectively through education and not by including the subjects in examination,” he said.He was replying to Hamim Samuri (BN-Ledang) on whether the Government planned to make the two subjects as core UPSR subjects.
Nevertheless, Mohd Puad said although not an examination subject, it was compulsory for Muslims students to take Islamic Studies and for non-Muslims students to take Moral Studies.-Bernama
