Muhyiddin Suggests Would-Be Educators Focus On Quality Education

GEORGE TOWN:  Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has urged would-be educators to pay attention to quality education.

Would-be teachers should stress on the issue of quality so that they could boost their level of proficiency in numerous aspects, the deputy prime minister told 2,000 staff of the Teachers’ Teaching Institute (IPG) who attended a friendly gathering this evening.

“Out there today, society is discussing our quality of education. I can proudly state that we have successfully churned out those who have even gone abroad to study, and children who have passed the SPM, for example, are accepted at any institution of higher learning as a result of our education system.

“And this, I feel, is a product of our leadership at the education ministry level and the roles played by every level of teaching manpower or teachers,” said Muhyiddin, who is also education minister.

He said, although this was already regarded as successful, there were still those who were doubtful whether the education development plan which had already been launched, could achieve a better level.

“This is why, we need teachers who are not only trained but also trained in the best possible manner,” he added.

Muhyiddin said would-be educators should be moulding characters and becoming examples to the young generation because the world was currently facing challenges related to noble values and immorality.

“Teachers who are produced by institutions should understand the target and direction of the nation and their role and responsibility as educators to produce a united society,” he noted.

He said educators would decide the future of the nation because to a large extent, it depended on their capability to churn out people who were trained with knowledge, skill and expertise.
