KUCHING: Sarawak’s education system needs to be excellent in general, and not just in selected schools, says Wellie Henry Majang.
The founder and advisor of Dayak Think Tank Association Sarawak (DTTAS) said the association was always ready to work with the Sarawak government towards this.
“We want to ensure that Dayak education development continues to be given attention throughout the state as well as implementing the rural education programme so that we can produce many highly skilled professionals in the future.
“We want to provide the best education, regardless of which district and city. This is our strategy regarding inclusive development.”
He said this during DTTAS’ courtesy call on Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas at Wisma Bapa Malaysia here today.
Wellie pointed out that they also discussed economic development and cooperation between DTTAS and the state government during the meeting.
“We also stressed on the need for a platform to enable the Dayak community to gain knowledge in economic and business management.
“This would provide a medium for those interested in venturing into business.
“To succeed, it requires not only funds and business skills but also the right attitude.”
