THE enactment of the Teaching Council Act was a welcome idea.
But little is being done to make it operational.
Most teachers are still in the dark.
Professionalism is very important especially in fields which directly deal with the welfare of human beings.
May the Ministry of Education, Science, Vocational Training and Early Education expedite the functions of the Teaching Council.
This is an important institution which has the potential to contribute to the improvement of the standards of education, which have dropped over the years.
