National Union of Teaching Profession (NUTP) president Hashim Adnan said the emphasis on human capital development would prepare the people in the march towards a developed country status.

"Human capital is an important national asset and the investment and development start today," he said.

The National Union of the Teaching Profession president Hashim Adnan said sex education must be given emphasis in health-related subjects and religious lessons.
It should also be made a compulsory subject in examinations, he added.

NUTP President Hashim Adnan opined that pupils in as early as Year Five could be exposed to sex education, but stressed that stimulating materials which depicted the performance of a sexual act were strictly out of bounds.
"There are limits to what children can be taught. There's no need to explain in detail what takes place before a woman becomes pregnant because all that information is beyond a child's understanding," he said.
He said it was more important for children to comprehend issues like relationships, religion, chastity, and what they should do or refrain from doing.
Hashim hoped the authorities would review the content of the Year Five health science textbook to determine whether it was appropriate for 11-year-olds, adding that this was to ensure that it would not have any adverse effects on their moral upbringing.

NUTP president Hashim Adnan said the union reached a consensus on the issue at a special executive council meeting, which included the National Union Of Teachers yesterday.
"We considered all perspectives and concluded that the implementation of a compulsory pass for History by 2013 is premature," he said after the meeting in a hotel here.
Hashim said some schools faced a shortage of History teachers whereas others had an excess. He added that some of those teaching History, at present, did not major in the subject.
