The public is divided on the decision, however, as most agree that apart from Jawi, other soft skills like critical thinking, personal finance and even coding be added to the syllabus too. Importantly, students should get to decide which soft skill that they want to learn.

Art does help with cognitive development, and there’s nothing wrong in picking up a skill. However, there’s more to it than just that. There are so many more vital skills that our youth are lacking today that trump the need to learn calligraphy. Making it mandatory for all students makes this issue even more contentious.
