Look at quality, not quantity of teachers, says Rafidah

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia must not play a “numbers game” by rushing to hire more teachers, former minister Rafidah Aziz has told the education ministry.

It is important to focus on the quality of the entire education infrastructure, as that is what will determine the future of the nation, the former international trade and industry minister said.

“We should never adopt ad hoc approaches and measures in education merely to fill in vacancies (of teachers’ positions),” she said in a statement.

Rafidah said the government should refer to studies and reports by education professionals and implement their proposals.
