WHAT IS CRUEL? Putting this story on N3 (Star) is! It is stretching the PM's 1 Malaysia orgasmic outpourings and diluting its portent substance too thin. The PM has already french-capped in Paris that from 1 Malaysia would evolve 1 Region and ultimately 1 World. We don't need a lowly Terengganu State Education, Higher Learning, Human Resource, Science and Technology Committee Chairman Ahmad Razif Abd Rahman to outdo the PM. This guy is too overloaded (portfolio wise - 4 in 1) and had to unload this "1 Toilet policy in a move to liberalise education, where teachers ...and even school principals ...will soon have to share toilets with their students". Hello, this way shit will fly and we don't ever need the fan!
He must have strained deliberating over "this policy in line with the 1 Malaysia concept, and teachers and students could have a feeling of oneness"and dropped the matter with "we want students to have a sense of belonging that we believe would inspire them to excel further in their education" and before exiting the outhouse proclaimed "when students share the toilets with the teacer, they (the students) will believe that they are on par with academicians and this automatically invokes a sense of being important to an organisation, which, in this case is the school."
For hygiene purposes I am against this sharing of 1 toilet. I am proposing this 4 in 1 concept (ABOVE). However the school management can be creative if it believes in some exchange programs!
I await my good friend Chegu Nazir to do a piece on this!
