Absent teachers a necessary conversation

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

A study by Khazanah Research Institute found that despite going to school for an average of 12 years, Malaysian students receive only nine years worth of meaningful education. Does the problem of extreme teacher absenteeism contribute to this? Astro Awani’s Melisa Idris and Sharaad Kuttan speak to child rights advocate Sharmila Sekaran, Peninsula director of Tiada.Guru, and Anne Lasimbang, executive director of Pacos.

The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.
