YBhg. Dato' Haji Mat Lazim bin Idris


The history of the Perak Education Department began in the 1890s with its establishment at the Taiping Central School. It was headed by Mr HB College who held the post of inspector of schools.

Up to 1930, the Perak state administration was restructured several times which resulted in the creation of several key posts such as inspector of schools, Malay school visiting teachers, art superintendent of physical education, Tamil school visiting assistant and domestic science mistress.

After the Second World War, the post of administrative head of the Education Department became the senior inspector of schools. The administration was moved to Ipoh at the site of the Office of the State Government Secretary. Subsequently, the office moved to the former High Court at Jalan Tun Abdul Razak, currently the oldest building in the Perak Education Department complex.

In 1953, the post of senior inspector of schools was changed to chief education officer. He was assisted by several English, Malay, Chinese and Tamil school governors as well as their assistants and clerical staff.

In 1954, the Education Department restructured the administration of Malay schools by giving greater attention to the northern and southern Perak regions. The duties and responsibilities of the inspector of Malay schools and visiting teachers increased with the growth in the number of schools.

After the country celebrated its first year of independence, the administrative system and organisation were augmented in line with the requirements of the National Education Policy which had been formulated based on the Razak Report of 1956 and Rahman Talib Report of 1960. In the 1960s, the administration of the Malay schools was revamped.

In the 1980s, the education administration and management system was restructured. Several divisions in departments were streamlined and the number of staff grew in accordance with the functions and duties of each division. On 1 June 1982, the Perak District Education Office was established to facilitate education matters at the district level throughout the state.

With the implementation of the new structure of the Ministry of Education, the Perak Education Department too was restructured in 2007. It currently comprises 8 sectors and 2 units:

  • Academic Management Sector
  • Management and Development Service Sector
  • Islamic Education Sector
  • Human Management and Development Sector
  • School Management Sector
  • Evaluation and Examination Sector
  • Private Education and Special Education Sector
  • Quality Assurance Sector
  • Information Management (ICT) Sector
  • Psychology and Counselling Sector
