THE Congress of Teachers’ Union in the Education Services has proposed that the Teachers Council include lecturers and kindergarten teachers. 

Malaysia Nanban and Tamil Nesan quoted union secretary-general Shahul Hamid Mydin Shah as saying that the standard of teaching would be improved and the image of the profession protected through the move. 

He also said that superiors could easily monitor the teachers under their charge and activities could be better co-ordinated. 

Education Minister Tan Sri Musa Mohamad had on Sunday announced the proposal to set up the council. 

The two newspapers also highlighted the suicide of college student S. Kavitha in Shah Alam, who jumped to her death from a 10th-floor apartment. 

Quoting Shah Alam OCPD Asst Comm Shukri Dahlan, the two papers said the girl was believed to have had an argument with a youth shortly before she jumped. 

Malaysia Nanban also highlighted the formation of the Indian Astrology Science and Research Council in Kuala Lumpur. 

The council’s spokesman, M. Muthusamy, said its goal was to teach and conduct research in ancient studies. He said the council would also conduct research on how astrology could help people live life better.
