Have you ever walked into a public toilet, only to leave in a split-second? You’re not alone.
At the launch of Civic Educations on 13 August, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad spoke out about how dirty public toilets reflects our civic consciousness.
He reasoned that other countries have cleaner public toilets because their citizens not only feel responsible for keeping the toilets clean, but they appreciate the public's perception of toilet cleanliness too.

Tun cited Japan as a model for high levels of civic consciousness, stating that "The children will fold the food wrapper and only throw it in waste-baskets or bins by the roadside."
The Prime Minister believes that civic education would build Malaysians to become more concerned, responsible and considerate.
He explained that the course, which was reintroduced in June 2019, is not only meant for the students, but teachers as well. They will be able to absorb these civic values.
The subject has been incorporated into Bahasa Melayu, English, Islamic Education, Moral Education, and History.
