Education Minister Radzi Jidin today said that managing the operation of schools during the Covid-19 pandemic would not have gone smoothly without the cooperation of all parties involved.

He also said it would have been impossible for him to carry out his responsibilities without the commitment and efficiency of teachers and those in the education ministry.

“I am thankful because I have an education ministry management team and educators who always give their best to ensure the country’s education system continues to run smoothly.

“We went through a very difficult period during the Covid-19 pandemic which was unprecedented, and we had to redesign the education system by issuing SOP guidebooks for compliance,” he said at the launch of this year’s Teachers’ Day celebration at Universiti Malaysia Kelantan.

Radzi said he was touched by the sacrifices of the teachers who had worked hard to understand every detail of the guidelines issued by the ministry to ensure a smooth learning process for students.

“Alhamdulillah, all of the guidelines given were implemented as well as possible, such as teachers waiting in front of the gates to check the temperature and health of students, teaching online, complying with rotation system and so on. Thank you to all the teachers,” he said.

Radzi added that even though the education system faced great challenges during this period, the ministry had managed to fill 87% of the 18,702 outstanding vacancies for teachers.

“The remaining 13% will be filled in stages as the ministry is facing a shortage of teachers, especially for critical subjects such as English and visual arts education,” he said.
