Shoe-throwing teacher in Port Dickson transferred

GEORGE TOWN: A male teacher, who allegedly threw a shoe at a female pupil in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan, had been transferred to another school pending investigations into the case. 

Expressing his shock and disappointment, Deputy Education Minister P. Kamalanathan said the incident would be investigated by the State Education Department and referred to the disciplinary committee.

"The incident should never have happened and the Education Ministry is not taking the matter lightly," he told reporters here on Friday.

The eight-year-old pupil needed three stitches on her right forehead in the 9.30am incident on Thursday.

The teacher threw the shoe after losing his temper as the girl was playing with two classmates.

Kamalanathan said the ministry had also removed a special education teacher from Sekolah Kebangsaan Bandar Mentakab, Temerloh, Pahang for yelling at a pupil and the headmaster. 

He said the teacher was placed in a pool group while awaiting investigations and the case is being referred to the disciplinary committee.

A video footage of the teacher's antic went viral on YouTube since last Sunday. - Bernama
