BFM Interview

One year later – has our children’s learning been transformed?

On 19 May 2018, the Founder of RITE Education, Ms Elmarié Potgieter, wrote an open letter to YB Dr Maszlee bin Malik, the then newly-appointed Minister of Education in Malaysia. This letter went viral on Facebook and was later covered by a national newspaper, The Star.

In April 2019, Elmarié wrote a follow-up letter to YB Dr Maszlee, and two months later, she was interviewed by BFM, Malaysia’s only independent radio station focused on business news and current affairs. The interview revolved around the education transformation agenda in Malaysia, also applicable across other developing countries.

Elmarié’s interview was aired on 10 July 2019. Listen to the interview below!
