KOTA KINABALU: The issue of absent teachers, particularly in rural Sabah, has gone to court with a former secondary school student suing a teacher for not teaching English in her Form Four class back in 2015.

Siti Nafirah Siman, now 19, said in court papers filed at the Kota Kinabalu High Court on Oct 16 that the absence of the teacher to teach the subject under the government’s Dual Language Policy to learn Maths and Science in English was a denial of rights to her and her classmates.
