The education sector and the empowerment of human capital are among the areas that the state government plans to prioritize for the upcoming Johor 2022 budget.
Mentri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad said the government will look into efforts to support education and training to produce a skilled human workforce.
He added that Johor needed highly skilled human capital to ensure he progressed and remained among the best states in the country.
âTherefore, we must always dig, refine and continue to expand the potential that exists among the Johoreans,â he said.
Hasni said this in his speech at the state-level Teachers’ Day celebration held at a hotel in Johor Baru.
He added that students should take the opportunity to gain knowledge through classroom learning after long delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We know that many of our children have not been able to go to school, have faced disruption in their learning either because of family financial constraints or because the teaching methods introduced during the pandemic were difficult. to implement.
“So on this basis, it is our responsibility to ensure that we can restore, restart or ‘reset’ our educational methods as soon as possible.”
Hasni said this requires the state government to take action on this and assured that this will be resolved in the Johor 2022 budget.
