Saving face: Protecting predators in education — Concerned Educators
MAY 21 — Teaching is a noble profession and Malaysian teachers are some of the most respected educators in the world1. This notion sets the perspective that a teacher, or any other adult in the education world for that matter, can do no wrong. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. As educators who have worked with both Malaysian and foreign education in Malaysian secondary schools across the country, we have seen many incidents of sexual harassment, indecent behaviour and assault in national secondary schools. When this happens to an adult, it is extremely upsetting. When it happens to our students, it is unforgivable.
