This paper outlines the rationale for developing a Cooperative Movement in secondary schools, with the examples drawn from Malaysia. There are 4 reasons to do so. Firstly, to give the students to experience the practice of democracy. Secondly, to give the students practical experience in organizing and cooperating an economic enterprise. Thirdly, to provide the schools, students and staffs with a convenient supply of items at attractive prices. And lastly, students could learn the art of working together or cooperating for the benefit of the whole school or for particular groups in the school. However, there are some problems concerning the school cooperatives, such as cash-flow difficulties, competition from the private sector, auditing facilities in decision making, as well as the needs to organize inter-cooperative activities.
