PUTRAJAYA, Feb 11 ― A Malay teacher who lodged a report that she was attacked by the parent of a student at SJKC Pai Chee in Mersing will be transferred out along with two others, Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said today.

The minister stressed that there was no racial or religious agenda in removing the teacher who also accused the headmaster of not aiding her in the attack or the two others who complained of discrimination.

“As for the headmaster, we will let the state's education department act on her,” he told reporters after visiting the education department here.

Mahdzir pointed out that those who fail to abide by the ministry’s general orders will be hauled to face a code of conduct committee under the Education Department.

Last month, 49-year-old Salina Daud of the school lodged a report claiming she had been attacked by a parent in a classroom.

Salina said the parent threw books at her for taking disciplinary action against his son, who had allegedly used foul language.

Claiming it was not the first such occurrence, Salina also alleged that the headmaster had not been helpful and that she, along with two other Malay teachers, were forced her to resign instead.

Perkasa’s Datuk Ibrahim Ali subsequently called for the headmaster to apologise and leave Mersing for good.
