The paper examines the returns to education for ethnic groups in the Malaysian labour market during the early 1960s' postâ€ colonial period. The analysis is based on data from the West Malaysia Family Survey of 1966â€“67. It is found that individual returns to education were positive during the period examined. However, the returns to education of particular ethnic groups differed. The findings suggest that â€˜equal education for allâ€™ does not guarantee that each ethnic group will receive equal wages unless there are other interventions in the labour market.
