SUNGAI PETANI: The Education Ministry may review the action taken against two teachers who were alleged to have used racial slurs on students. 

Its parliamentary secretary Datuk Mahadzir Mohd Khir said if certain quarters were not happy, the ministry would look into the case involving two teachers of SRK Seksyen I, Bandar Kinrara, in Puchong. 

“I understand that the matter has been resolved. But if there are calls for stern action (against the teachers), the ministry will look into the case again,” he said. 

“I hope such incidents do not recur. We cannot allow racial slurs in schools and will ensure such things do not happen again. However, I urge the relevant quarters not to harp on the matter,” he said when asked to comment on a statement by MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu that the party would lodge a report with the ministry over complaints that teachers in secondary schools were using racial slurs against students.
