Abstract

This is a comparative study on the measures taken by the Ministry of Education in registering Public or State Religious Schools as Government-Funded Religious Schools (SABK) since 2004 against the taking over of Public and State Religious Schools that took place in 1977. A suitable comparison method has been employed with the intent to establish a guide which will be used to gauge what is happening during the take over, so that the adverse impacts will not be repeated in the future. Interviews and document analysis were the used tools. The study found that although stakeholders and issues are slightly different, situation wise they are quite a number of repetitions from history. Lessons should have been taken from history so that any action taken must be preceded with caution in avoiding the loss of religious schools identity, the identity which Al-Azhar curriculum has served for decades. Authors have proposed that the way to register the schools need revision and the modification of the management system restructured with a more acceptable and bearing less conflict new structure.
