Teachers are Better Politicians....

I took this straight from the local newspaper today:

PUTRAJAYA: Teachers have been allowed to be involved in politics as they will serve to improve the country's political leadership, given the intellect and respect they command in the community, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said yesterday. He said there would be a void if the prohibition was not lifted, especially at the grassroots level.

"Teachers are highly looked upon and respected by the community and they would have the kind of knowledge and credentials that command that respect. Hence, when they become political leaders, they will be better accepted.

"They also promote values that are not materialistic and would mould better political behaviour and values," Najib said, adding that politically-active teachers must prioritise their role as educators. Whatever political post they held, the teachers must respect the Education Department and school's organisational structure.

Deputy Prime Minister @ Minister of Education Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the decision was made to enable teachers to contribute their leadership qualities to society.
"It does not matter whether they want to hold posts in Barisan Nasional or the opposition.
"Of course, as a leader in BN, I wish they will all be supportive of the government. But rest assured, no one will take any action against those who choose to be with the opposition as there will be no discrimination in this matter."

He said teachers should be allowed to use their free time for the good of society through politics.
Muhyiddin, nonetheless, stressed that politics was strictly off-limits at schools.

My comments:
Well, well, well.... The government is turning to teachers to save the country...
Now, they have realized that teachers are better politicians !!!!
What can I say...

Have a nice day....
