The NILAM (Nadi Ilmu Amalan Membaca) Program was launched in all Malaysian Primary and Secondary schools in 1999. The program is aimed at instilling the reading habit among school children. It gives recognition to school children who read the most number of books in a year. After six years of implementation, several questions were raised as to the effectiveness of the program in achieving its objectives of encouraging children to read and the efforts made by the schools to inculcate the reading habit. To answer these questions, a survey was done, using stratified random sampling method, on a sample of 3738 teachers and 8010 students from selected public primary and secondary schools throughout the country. The survey was commissioned by the Educational Technology Division, Ministry of Education, Malaysia. This article presents some of the findings of the study based on analysis of questionnaire and interview data. Generally, students are positive about the success of NILAM. Some existing challenges include proper training in managing NILAM, attitudes among teachers and children, and existing facilities for developing a love for reading. However, the views differ among students from urban as opposed to rural schools. This article also discusses the implications for policy and practice.
