TEMPORARY Tamil school teachers who completed their teachers training course during the last school holidays will be receiving their appointment letters soon, Malaysia Nanban reported.
Malaya Tamil School Teachers Union National president P. Tharmalinggam said the Education Ministry had agreed to issue the appointment letters.
He said about 80 temporary teachers who had been selected to undergo teacher training during the holidays from December 2005 had completed their three-year training.
He urged the ministry to review the monthly payment of RM616 given to the teachers during their training, which was less than the amount given previously to other teachers for their training.
He also urged the ministry to consider a higher salary scale based on their previous experience as they had forgone their salary increment.

He said a student was sacked recently while another four were suspended.
He said the university was conducting its own investigations and if proven, action would be taken against more students.
