KUALA LUMPUR: Schools nationwide have been told to set up "special rooms" for teachers to unwind from the stresses of the job in an effort to create a more conducive environment, says Dr Maszlee Malik.

The Education Minister said a circular dated Dec 19, 2018, had asked schools around the country to create these areas so that teachers can rest during breaks or after working hours.

According to Dr Maszlee, the "special rooms" are part of the Education Ministry's aspiration to create an environment of love, happiness and respect.

"This is important because psychologically speaking, teachers are normal humans too and they need space to rest.

"I encourage the private sector, the Parent-Teacher Association (PIBG), NGOs or alumni to contribute to the school to set up these special rooms.

"It will indirectly improve the quality of teaching," he said during a press conference at the Parliament lobby on Wednesday (March 20).
