Description/Abstract

The paper examines Malaysia’s effort to provide good quality primary education by 2015, responding to the second Education for All (EFA) goal. The basic characteristics of an effective school in terms of input and process factors are applied here: educational resources, school leadership, school climate, and parental involvement. A survey was conducted in 123 primary schools. Responses were received from 1367 urban and 1183 rural school teachers. Multilevel modelling analysis indicates that 19.4% of the total variance in the educational quality score is explained at school level and that overall quality tends to be slightly lower in rural schools. Emerging factors transpired from the open-ended item. The results and the implications of the study are discussed
