More power to district education officers from 2014.

KUALA TERENGGANU: The transformation of district education offices to ensure the successful implementation of the Government Transformation Programme will be completed by 2014, said Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

He said under the transformation programme, district education officers will be given more autonomy on school management, budgeting decisions and the appointment of teachers and school principals.

“The big challenge facing district education officers now is to ensure that the Education Ministry’s achievements during the first phase of the Government Transformation Programme which will end this year could be mantained and improved in GTP 2 which will start next year,” he said.
