The Malaysian Education Blueprint 2013-2025 has achieved three main targets in its first wave after the implementation period ended last year. Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said the three key achievements of the first wave of the blueprint were: the mastery of literacy and numeracy programs by students; increase in pre-school and primary school enrollment; and the bridging of the urban and rural gap. He said that since the blueprint was launched three years ago, 99 percent of pupils had become literate in Linus Bahasa Malaysia, while literacy in English rose to 94 percent last year as compared to 63.3 percent in 2013.
