Being a Penangite myself, I followed up on the case and contacted one of my blogger friends who is a schoolteacher back in Penang to confirm the news?
What did she tell me?
Plenty! It seems that in spite of the general ruling barring schoolteachers and education officers from getting involved in politics, the BN has been quite active trying to force their way into the school's education system and regular meet ups are conducted by the Headmasters and school senior officials with teachers to check as to their political leanings?
Those who are found to be leaning towards the Barisan Rakyat DAP-PKR-PAS coalition will be kept stagnated and prevented from getting any promotions.
With the recent change of government in Penang, the BN mindset State Education Department officials have turned petty minded and went about the schools telling HM's that it's okay if they do not send their teachers or school representatives to any State Government functions!
No need for any show cause letters to be provided by the schools to the State Government since the BN is not running the government there anymore?
Talk about half baked idiots screwing up our State Education Departments!
Excerpt from the tip off I got :
No action will be taken against teachers who do not attend official functions organised by the new state government.
National Union of the Teaching Profession (NUTP) Penang branch Lim Ming Tzong @ Adam Alim Abdullah said teachers in
He said the teachers were granted the “flexibility” since the state was no longer under the Barisan Nasional rule.
A senior state Education Department official recently told school heads at a briefing that their attendance was immaterial. “But, those who plan to attend such functions are required to first inform their school heads about it,” he said on Wednesday.
Previously, he said, disciplinary action would be taken against teachers who failed to provide reasonable excuses for not attending state-organised functions.
Lim advised teachers to use their discretion on whether to attend such functions, adding that those who did not would not be penalised."
I know the kind of idiots who do this kind of low class administrative 'office politics'. I have my own personal experience in dealing with such bullock mindsets in a major government agency that looks out for the Bumiputera's! Useless buggers!
The rot starts at the very top! No prizes for guessing who?
There is a whole lot of Government Department 'pegawai's who are useless and waste the taxpayers money by whiling away their working hours talking 'politics' at the cafeteria's and warong kopi's outside government office complexes.
You can see them 'lepaking' at and around most of the government departments. I will go around shooting videos of these idiots who are usually those who 'makan gaji buta!'.
Do you even wonder why our country is so backward compared to even our south of Johore neighbor ,the small island Republic of Singapore?
You can curse, rant and rave at Harry Lee Kuan Yew but the way that man has turned around Singapore and improved the city state to such a high class country just makes me want to spring a salute at the Mentor Minister!
It is because of dimwits like those at the Penang State Education Department who act as 'little Napoleons' and become the enemies of the nation from within and cause our education systems to be so out of tune with the rest of Asia if not the world!
Useless @#$%^&*! No wonder that the whole nation is in this sorry ass shape! Let's not even start to compare with the one who calls himself as the Supreme Leader of this nation?
May they develop ulcers on their 'lepaking' butts and suffer from boils! Grrrrrrr!
