Teachers: Don't cover up their misdeeds

ANOTHER case of a teacher making a derogatory statement against students of a particular race has emerged, this time at SMK George Town in Penang.

There seems to be no end to such incidents involving teachers.

Why does the Education Ministry not take stern action against such teachers?

The ministry should not allow anyone to cover up these matters. It should tackle the issue head on and, once and for all, resolve it.

Officers who are carrying out the investigation on the cases must be competent and fair.

I am surprised to read that National Union of the Teaching Profession president Hashim Adnan had declined to comment on the matter as he had not read any report on it.

Does he realise that we are now living in the Internet era?
