The Tiada.Guru Campaign held its Forum 2.0 "End corruption in education with people-powered solidarity: what is our role and what is our path forward?"
We will also, in a future presentation, give 1) the latest information on the two High Court litigation cases and 2) a deeper explanation of what is corruption in education.
Corruption in education is quite serious and has become a culture whose impact is not fully realized by most Malaysians. The corruption crisis in the MOE has repeatedly been reported by the MACC and MOE whistleblowers, but many of us cannot link the failures of the education system to the rampant corruption scandals at all levels of the Ministry of Education.
This analysis is built from three years of the Tiada.Guru Campaign's fight to advocate for two events: the two High Court litigation cases by four whistleblowing teenagers in Sabah and the protection of teacher whistleblowers that report misconduct of fellow teachers, the involvement of PPD (district) / JPN (state) / MOE (Ministry) officers, MACC's stance and the result of prosecutions, and the solutions we have today.
Thus, we are very pleased to invite you to view Forum 2.0: let us peel away the cultures of corruption in education that have been hidden for so long. Among the questions that will be asked,

Tiada.Guru is a whistleblower campaign for teachers, parents, and students that fights corruption, negligence, and abuse in the Ministry of Education. We cover two High Court litigation cases in Sabah from 18- and 19-year-old Sabahan girls against a chain of misconduct that exposed Ministry of Education officials that are claimed to have forged official documents, protected misconduct, and a culture extreme teacher absenteeism that lasted for years. Our core team includes teachers, parents, and students that fight without fear nor favour. We are a grassroots group that is on the ground every day. Tiada.Guru is a campaign of hope and justice for the rural people of Sabah and all Malaysians.
