PETALING JAYA: The National Union of the Teaching Profession is shocked and saddened by the arrests of four teachers in connection with the UPSR test paper leak.

NUTP secretary-general Lok Yim Pheng said that if the teachers were really involved and proven guilty, it would mar the good reputation of the teaching profession.

“The arrest has saddened us,” she said. “It has shown that there might be those among us who are not acting in accordance with the ethics of the profession.”

Lok said as teaching was considered a noble profession, teachers should always uphold the ethics of their job at all times.

“Teachers must act with integrity befitting their profession,” she added.

Lok said the arrests should act as a lesson and as a reminder to all teachers to maintain the values and expectations of the vocation in their actions.

“Such leaks should not and must not happen,” she added.
