The quality of students in Malaysia
The Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin is said to be shocked about the quality of students compared with those in countries such as United States of America. This country spends about RM40 billion a year on education which are affected by many factors. For example, the allocation for profesional development to train teachers has been reduced from RM1.5 billion to about RM960 million. Good teachers produce better students. We call on the Government to raise the quality and welfare of over 400,000 teachers. Education should not be mixed with politics.
