Refusal to register an educational institution
The Registrar General has powers to refuse the registration of an educational institution if he is satisfied—
- that the educational institution does not satisfy the prescribed standards of health and safety;
- that the educational institution is used or likely to be used for a purpose detrimental to the interests of Malaysia, the public or the pupils;
- that the name under which the educational institution is to be registered is, in his opinion, undesirable;
- that existing educational facilities are already adequate in the area in which it is proposed to open the educational institution;
- that a statement which was false or misleading in a material particular has been made in or in connection with the application for registration;
- that the person applying for the registration of the educational institution fails or refuses to comply with any of the conditions imposed by the Registrar General under subsection 82(3); or
- that the person appointed to be the chairman of the board of governors or head teacher is not a fit and proper or responsible person to act as chairman or head teacher, as the case may be.
The Act gives the aggrieved person a right to appeal to the Minister.
