KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 19 — Former Education director-general Datuk Amin Senin has been appointed as National Education Advisory Council (NEAC) chairman for the 2023 – 2025 session.
The Ministry of Education (KPM) in a statement said Amin’s vast experience in the education field, together with the support of eight other NEAC members will be able to present profound ideas in steering the country’s education sector towards educational reform, integration and democratisation.
“The excessive level of teacher workload will be the council’s main focus as they will have to examine the issue before coming up with the best solution for the consideration of the minister,” read the statement.
Prof Datuk Mohamad Fauzan Noordin was appointed as deputy chairman while the other council members include Prof Omar Yaakob, Datuk Mehander Singh Nahar Singh, Prof Datuk Noor Inayah Ya’akub, Mohd Abd Aziz Mahmud, Aminuddin Awang, Rusilawati Mohd Salleh and Chee Poh Kiem.
The NEAC was established in November 2010 with the role to advise the minister of education, contribute ideas and views to the ministry and further improve the direction of the country’s education.
