RM15k-a-month to teach English. That's the plan, anyway. I'm told the Ministry is in the process of selecting six agents for the purpose of MBMMBI (Memartabkan Bahasa Malaysia & Memperkukuhkan Bahasa Inggeris). Each agent will bring in 160 English native speakers to become trainer-teachers. By 2012, when this project kicks off, there will be 960 tts altogether. The plan is to pay them RM8000 to RM15000 each.
Snag: Local teachers are paid a lot less. The experienced ones get between RM3k and RM4k a month. So how?
My Rocky's Bru on Thursday column, which debuts in The Malay Mail today, talks about this issue. Please read Dinosaurs, 160 x 6 teachers, and "Rachel Corrie" at 84 Jalan Tangsi.
