Stop warning teachers who criticise on social media, says Fadhlina

KUALA LUMPUR: Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek has urged that the practice of warning teachers who criticise on social media to be stopped immediately.

She said she was informed that a special education teacher at SMK Jalan Reko, Hasmadi Hamdan, had been given a warning by officials for his criticisms on social media.

"Special education teachers are my frontliners in developing the Madani concept in teaching students with special needs. His concerns are mine too," she said in a post on her official Facebook page today (Jan 27).

"It is important to have an avenue for constructive criticism as a check and balance process,” she said, adding that it was good to have differences of opinions as long as they are in the interests of the students and their welfare.

According to her, a good administrative management approach can only succeed when there is transparency at the classroom, school and education office levels.

Fadhlina also shared Hasmadi's public message to the Education Minister that was uploaded from the teacher's social media channel. - Bernama
