Better language teachers

According to Minister Datuk Yap, a Cambridge test shows that 70% of Malaysian English teachers lack the competency of the language. This was one of the reasons for stopping the project of Teaching of Science and Maths in English (PPSMI).

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin admitted in Parliament that there were teachers who needed special courses. Obviously, these courses have to be redesigned to improve the standard of teachers.

The Education Ministry must have its own assessment of the quality of over 400, 000 teachers in the country. What is the standard of Bahasa Malaysia, Mandarin and Tamil teachers? It is high time that the Government let us know the standard of Malaysian teachers.
