Abstract

This paper discusses the Arabic teachers for the Malaysian Smart School Project in light of assessment New Primary School Curriculum (NPSC) and Integrated Secondary School Curriculum (ISSC) based on The Malaysian Philosophy of Education. Data on the NPSC and ISSC is taken from 250 schools in Malaysia using postal questionnaire. The study identifies the weaknesses in the implementation of those curricula as lack of understanding and support among the teachers for the teaching approach advocated by the Philosophy of Education, packed syllabi, large class sizes, short teaching periods and lack of support for teachers to develop materials. This study analyse the Malaysian Smart School in terms of its conceptual blueprint as its implementation is only at its pilot stage. We find that the Malaysian Smart School has the potential of improving education by providing answers to the unresolved questions in the previous curricula. However, the Malaysian Smart School have to be assessed some time after its implementation based on The Malaysian Philosophy of Education, as conceptual blueprints may not materialise without effective implementation policies
