What rules and laws govern the formation of schools in Malaysia? Do those same laws affect private schools?
For instance, if you set up a private school, are you required by law to administer the KBSM/KBSR curriculum? Do your students have to take UPSR/PMR/SPM/STPM?
What if you wanted to set up an alternative school – for example, one following the Sudbury Valley model? With the Sudbury Valley model, national curricula and standardized exams would go against everything the model stands for – democratic, student-centered education.
Would you need to get approval from the Government before setting up such a school? How and where would you get funding?
