TEACHING - Low Class Profession..??

 TEACHERS.......
A lot has been said lately about the treatment given to teachers in schools.... Gone are the days where teachers get the high class treatment by the government. Funds are missing or is it that the allocation for the Education sector being cut off? Several privileges have been taken out:
1.  No more mileage claim for teachers. You are lucky if you get one..
2.  No more air tickets (in West Malaysia). Not even taxi. Only express bus ride..., even if you are the Principal of a school.
3.  No more 4 or 5 star hotels for seminars (if any)... Only budget hotels...
4.  No more courses to attend to.  Just stay in schools...
5.  No more photostat services in schools. Write everything on the board...
6.  RM 4 allocated for each teacher if they have to attend courses from morning to evening.. This means a cup of tea and something cheap to eat for the tea break, once at 10.00am and the other at 4.30pm in the afternoon, and no lunch. The alternative is to have a lunch session in the afternoon and no tea breaks...
7.  ........bla, bla ,bla......

One came out in the NST today.....

Courses for teachers: Provide at least rice and 'ulam'

EVERY year, teachers are asked to attend courses at the district, state or national level. Lunch is served without fail.




However, this is not the case this time around.

Teachers have been asked to buy their own lunch. Imagine if there were no stall or shop in the vicinity. It would inconvenience everyone.

The teachers would also waste time and money looking for eateries.

I wonder why the authorities decided on this. Is it because the government is short of funds? Is it because teachers do not deserve a meal?

This is a big question mark hanging over those who have to attend courses.
Recently, a teacher, who is a state facilitator, had his mileage claim reduced by RM500. The reason given was a lack of funds. Surely this is not right.

Teachers are not asking for five-star meals.

It's also not too demanding for the ministry or department to serve a simple meal of white rice and ulam.

We are told the economy has recovered and is continuing to grow.

However, if those who go for courses cannot be given simple meals, it would be hard for many to digest what they are hearing.

Hm..............
Have a nice day, anyway....

It's so sad to read about the treatment that teachers get nowadays. But then, if we can't do anything about it, just be sincere in teaching and may all of you be rewarded generously in 'Akhirat'...
