PUTRAJAYA: School safety will be made a key performance indicator for school heads to reduce the number of break-ins and accidents in schools, said Second Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.
He said it was the responsibility of school heads to ensure that security guards stationed in schools carried out their duties.
“When it comes to safety in schools, break-ins are not the only concern. There are cases of students getting injured from damaged facilities in the school,” Idris said after launching the Occupational Safety and Health programme yesterday.
On the controversy surrounding the closure of Albukhary International University, Idris said the welfare of the students should be given top priority.
“The university is entitled to close but they have to take care of the welfare of the students so their studies will not be disrupted,” said Idris.
He said the ministry had given the assurance that the welfare of the students would be looked after and it was in the midst of investigating the closure of the university.
Six of its students filed a suit against the institution for allegedly failing to give a notice of closure as required by the Private Institutions of Higher Learning Act.
