Education NKRA established to help students

PUTRAJAYA: The Education NKRA under the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) has been established to improve students’ performance in schools in addition to providing them with access to better quality education.

The initial step towards the progress in Malaysia’s education system as mapped out by the NKRA is for educationists to willingly make sacrifices in order to meet challenges in the nation’s education sector.

Education Ministry deputy director-general (education operations sector) Datuk Noor Rezan Bapoo Hashim said that teachers should be better than their students in all aspects.

For example, they should not think that after 30 years of teaching the English language that they need not bother to learn how to use computers.

“The teaching method of today is vastly different from that of the past,” said Noor Rezan.

Teachers must be prepared to change as the use of information and communication technology (ICT) helps them to improve classroom teaching as children of today are well versed in the Internet.

Noor Rezan said that teachers especially those in secondary schools should be ahead of their students as children have computers at home, apart from cyber cafés where Internet is also accessible.
