Teacher Redeployment: Senior teacher puts department in a spot

JOHOR BARU: A senior assistant of a secondary school has put the Johor Education Depart­ment in a spot by refusing a transfer order.

She and the headmistress were jointly transferred by the department after they had problems working together.
The SMK Infant Jesus Convent headmistress complied but the senior assistant has not.
 The senior assistant also put her replacement in a spot when she attended the school’s assembly yesterday.
A parent, who refused to be named, said it was amusing to see the two senior assistants together during the first day of school.
“It is quite embarrassing as the teacher is setting a bad example to other teachers as well as the students,” he said.
The school parent-teacher association chairman, Badrudin Mohamad, hoped the problem would be solved by the department.
“For the sake of the students, we want the matter to be resolved soon,” he said.
Johor Education Department director Markom Giran said the department would solve the matter internally.
He said the department would ensure the teacher complied with the transfer order.
“We will refrain from taking disciplinary action.”
