This is because Malaysia’s government emphasis on education very much as education can provide skillful labor for the country’s development. Besides, In Malaysia, there doesn’t have the problem of gender disparities in education. This is because every boy and girl of the age 7 to 12 is required to receive primary education whether for public sector or private sector. Therefore there isn’t any gender disparity in receiving primary education as in India where is overpopulated and family rather send boy to school than girl as they believe boy will be the family supporter in the future. This caused illiteracy rate among women is much higher than man in India.

By providing equal access to education for children regardless of their socio-economic background, social mobility of Malaysia citizens could be improved drastically. However, the opportunity provided for residents in rural area, who are mostly ranked at the lower level of social hierarchy, is insufficient from the aspects of teaching force available. According to Education Minister Malaysia, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, most rural schools nationwide have encountered the problem of lagged behind in facilities and teaching force. (as cited in Teh, 2014) From the data provided by Department of Statistics Malaysia (2012), the average monthly income for household in rural area is RM3,080.00 while the RM 5,742.00 for urban area. As a deduction, most of the pupils in rural area are from family with lower socioeconomic status compared to urban area.
In reality, we know many children that complain about school, but they don’t realize how lucky they are compared to the millions of children in developing countries that have never even been to school in their lives. Not because they don’t want to, but because they can’t. The Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 29 states that all countries should enable all children to go to school. Every child has the right to a quality education and to go to a school where they feel safe and included. Many countries have signed multiple human rights treaties stating that this right will be followed.
The interplay between mortality rates and population age structure contributes to the mortality population in Malaysia. The low birth rate in Malaysia could be due to a few number of women are in child bearing age. The entrance of male immigrants that are brought into Malaysia by the British colony during the early formation of the country has led to the number of men which outnumbered women today. According to Dhesi (2013), Malaysia is one of the attractive destination for foreigner especially foreign workers and students which has its pros and cons for the country. An increase in the labour-intensive industries in the country causes foreign workers to migrate to Malaysia which leads to an increase in the population of the
Malnutrition had affect between 20-50 per cent of Sarawak native children. Chen (1987), found that malnutrition among Penan children are high (31.4%) in the area involve with deforestation. This happen because the natural resource in the forest being destroy by the deforestation activities. It also causes the water pollution to the river which it become the main source of indigenous people to get access to clean water and protein from fish. According to Forests Monitors Organization reports, malnutrition are widespread in Sarawak in late 1970 and early of 1980 due to decline in wild meat harvesting as result from deforestation activities.
Many public toilets around the country, only 3 per cent have five-star rating for hygiene while 61 per cent have been rated with two stars or less (Lee, 2014). Hence, impression of Malaysia would be damaged in view of tourist from other countries. Due to lack of public awareness, image of Malaysia could not very well to other countries. In case, Malaysia is a developing country so it should take care its image and this can help Malaysia earn profit in the tourist industry. In addition, lack of public awareness could be a serious issue if Malaysia did not control this issue
This literature shows that poverty is not the main reason of school refusal behavior but it could generate the thought of refusing school. There has been found linkages between child work and both social school attendance and school attainment of children aged 15-17 years old which is stated by Lyn (2012). Due to poverty, some children are forced or even volunteered to work at a young age. It is not a mistake to do so but it could affect a child’s school attainment. One of the child’s responsibilities is to study but working at the same time would not be a good contribution to a child’s life.

Three main race in Malaysia which are Malay, Chinese and indian are hating each other and created a war between them.
Does not matter either the kids are rich or poor, education was one of the needs in human life. Poverty in Malaysia lead to poor education among the children and it is therefore important for governments to tackle the issue and prevent from the children to be ignored and left out. The child from the poor family might face a hard time in their early life. Children in poverty are more likely to have negative experiences and feel ignored by the teachers (V.V. Chandran & C. Geetha, 2009).
