Future Projection on Patriotism among School Students Using Delphi Technique
ABSTRACT
To date, past studies on projection of future education in Malaysia show that patriotism of the local secondary school students (in short, students) is yet to be conducted but currently studies are conducted on technology applications on both local curriculum content and teaching and learning, future curriculum of the local secondary school, future agro-science subject, and future moral of the Malaysian students. Benefiting from Delphi technique of Abraham Kaplan, this study attempts to see what the experts’ projections are on students’ spirit of patriotism in Malaysia, the impacts of spirit of patriotism on students’ culture developments and curriculum implementation in the nation.
