BACHOK: Teachers can look forward to spending more of their time teaching as the Education Ministry has given a commitment to improving several structures in the system, says Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin.
“We will ensure that the inefficiencies in the structure of the school system are addressed so that the teachers can spend their time educating optimally.
“We will also restructure the teacher transfer process, whereby applications can be made throughout the year involving four transfers a year based on the suitability of the place applied for and the subject options in the state concerned.
“Besides that, we will also ensure that teachers can teach other subjects apart from their core subject so as to give them an advantage when requesting a transfer,” he told a press conference after attending the launch of the national-level 51st Teachers’ Day 2022 celebration at Universiti Malaysia Kelantan here yesterday, Bernama reported.
Radzi said teacher development and well-being would also be given attention to ensure efficient school operations and teachers.
“We went down to the ground to listen to views and grievances from educators during the management engagement sessions held earlier,” he added.
At the event, Datu Dr Adi Badiozaman @ Badio Zaman Tuah was named Tokoh Kepimpinan Pendidikan Kebangsaan 2022, while Roslan Yatim was recipient of the Anugerah Tokoh Guru Kebangsaan 2022.
