PETALING JAYA: The teacher who led the protest against the school-based assessment (PBS) system has refused to report to his new school despite his transfer order.
Suara Guru-Masyarakat Malaysia working committee head Mohd Nor Izzat Mohd Johari said he was still teaching at a school some 25km from his home in Jerantut, Pahang.
“If I report to the new school, this would mean I would be submitting to the questionable transfer order,” he said yesterday.
Mohd Nor Izzat, who led the protest by a group of teachers in Bangi on Feb 22, received a transfer letter dated Feb 17 from the Pahang education department, transferring him to a school over 80km from his home.
The art teacher said he was still waiting for a decision on his appeal against the transfer, claiming both his current school and the one that he was supposed to report to had no problems with his actions.
“The district education office refuses to help, saying it does not want to get involved in my case.”
An Education Ministry official said Mohd Nor Izzat’s transfer was under the purview of the Pahang education department.
