Abstract

The progress of the institutionalization of the People's Religious Schools (SAR) in Malaysia demonstrates that it is laden with diverse challenges to ensure that it continues to be in the national education system. The effort to institutionalise the SAR has actually begun since the early days of independence. Among the measures that have been taken are the creation of the laws of financial assistance, the acquisition of administration, the founding of the Lembaga Penasihat Penyelarasan Pelajaran dan Pendidikan Agama Islam (LEPAI) or Advisory Council for the Coordination of Islamic Education, the state Enactment Coordination, the uniformity of the Malaysia Religious Higher Certificate (STAM) and the latest is the registration of the SAR as the Government-Aided Religious Schools (SABK). However, these efforts are yet to be successfully implemented and position at its full readiness to be in the mainstream. This purpose of this study is to discuss the history of the development of SAR institutionalization and looking at the extent of the differences and the strategies, also the management implications for every step taken. The methodologies used were the document analysis and interviews. The findings of this study have been able to show that the process of an event will continue to happen the way the historical theories did. The process of event is only different from several aspects, yet the grounds for the change remain the same. The society only needs to learn the lesson from what has happened and make it as a guidance to overcome the challenges of future events.
