Available alternative education

The rapidly declining standards in the quality and level of education in government schools has caused students and parents to look for alternative sources of education and educationists and the business community are rising to meet the challenge.
The Malaysian education system has gone awry and this has prompted a frantic search by students and their parents to seek for alternative education and many want the system of education used by British colonialists to be brought back.
But the days of a La Salle education and the mission schools which existed have been replaced by rogue politicians by an inferior education system which students and parents lament is not up to the mark.
But there are still viable alternatives and Chinese schools have stepped in to take after the role of Christian based schools and they have emerged as a suitable alternative to government schools and institutions of learning.
There is also the emergence of home schooling which is growing popular and also educare centres and tuition centres which provide a far better quality of learning than government schools and are considered affordable.
Private schools are the other alternative but they appeal to the affluent and many private schools have been established in the country over the last decade as students and parents look for alternatives to government schools.
