Bringing Change To Malaysia's Neediest Classrooms

Dzameer Dzulkifli, Teach for Malaysia

Bringing Change To Malaysia's Neediest Classrooms

Dzameer Dzulkifli the Co-Founder & Managing Director of Teach for Malaysia is on the Breakfast Grille.

The Teach For Malaysia Fellowship is a full-time, two-year programme. Fellows are placed as teachers in high-need schools focused on addressing education inequity in Malaysia.

Dzameer discusses:

-- Why education inequity is the biggest problem in education, and the root causes of the inequity

-- How some of the brightest young minds, through Teach For Malaysia, help address this in high-need Malaysian schools

-- What is considered to be a “high-need” school and some examples in the Klang Valley

-- If the 2-month training course is sufficient preparation, and the on-the-job support given to fellows

-- If high-needs students are actually the children who most need veteran teachers instead

-- TFM's ambitious goal for the 2014 Cohort for 100 fellows

-- The number of applications received so far, and the number of accepted 2014 Fellows to date

-- Elevating the perception of the teaching profession

-- A teacher's salary at the entry level

-- Garnering the support of the faculty at schools

-- Working with the Ministry of Education

-- Funding for Teach For Malaysia and expenditure

And finally, we ask Dzameer the one thing he would change about the education policy in this country. Listen to the podcast to find out what it is!
