"My hope is that our education ministry (pic) will strive to impart fair and just policies," said Dusing.

PETALING JAYA: Teachers can provide feedback on their job burden or shortcomings to the Edu­ca­tion Ministry following complaints that they are still bogged down by clerical work.

The ministry had outlined five short-term initiatives to reduce teachers’ burden and those who had additional feedback could directly submit it to the ministry, said minister Dr Maszlee Malik.

Dr Maszlee said the mi­­nistry had come up with mid- and long-term plans to address the issue holistically.

“I will monitor all the development and review the plans and implementation myself,” he said.

Dr Maszlee added that he had personally visited schools and talked to teachers to get their views, es­­pecially on their daily work pro­blems.

“I have visited many schools, including those in dilapidated condition in Sabah and Sarawak,” he said.

He said that one obvious chal­­lenge faced by the teachers was the amount of clerical work that they had to do which was not relevant to their main role of teaching students.

Dr Maszlee appealed to all parties, including teachers and schools, to give their full cooperation to ensure the success of these initiatives.

It was reported that teachers across the country are still bogged down by clerical work such as ma­­nual recording of students’ data.

Many teachers also said they were also saddled with recording their class students’ informations manually and also online for the know­ledge of the ministry.

Teachers or any relevant party interested to give their input can submit it through this link: d/e/1FAIpQLSf5pQssIbuhXNzp5BwfcIvq4GqMDDfEjJklOQIR7y9XC6D0WA/viewform.
