MUAR – A total of 1,673 new teachers will be placed at 1,296 Chinese vernacular schools nationwide over the next two weeks.
Deputy Education Minister Chong Sin Woon said the teachers would report for duty by Jan 18 at the latest.
“The teachers are all fresh graduates and trained to teach various subjects at the schools,” he said at SJKC Pu Nan in Bukit Bakri here on Sunday.
Chong said that in the past, SJKCs nationwide had been overwhelmed by teacher shortages but that this year, the ministry had planned ahead to solve the issue. – The Star Online
