The ministry provides monthly allowances to ethnic language teachers, Union Minister for Education Dr Myo Thein Gyi told Amyotha Hluttaw yesterday.
A budget has been allocated for the provision of monthly allowances to ethnic language teachers and arrangements have been made to distribute textbooks in 49 ethnic minority languages free of charge to 540,000 students in 187 townships during the 2016-2017 Academic Year, added the Union Minister.
According to the Union minister, ethnic minority language textbooks approved by ethnic literature and culture associations were distributed to Grade I, 2 and 3 students. There is no plan to appoint more ethnic language teachers this academic year, as ethnic teachers and local volunteer teachers are teaching ethnic students in their native language, said the Union minister, adding that appointment of ethnic language teachers will be made next academic years under the arrangements of the regional governments.
Since the 2013-2014 academic year, ethnic languages have been taught in respective schools in regions and states, he said. During yesterday’s Amyotha Hluttaw session, Union Minister for Transport and Communications U Thant Sin Maung responded to a question about whether a plan to allow companies to lease unused, state-owned buildings for operation of private maritime training schools.
The Union minister replied that it is hard to lease enough buildings to all companies as there are many training courses.
