Teacher suspected of grooming should have been suspended earlier, says activist

James Nayagam says the practice of transferring teachers who have committed acts of misconduct to other schools should be done away with.

PETALING JAYA: The teacher who allegedly had a relationship with a 17-year-old student should have been suspended when the matter came to light in December, according to child rights activist James Nayagam.

Taking exception to the move to transfer the teacher initially, Nayagam, who is chairman of Suriana Welfare Society, said sending teachers who have misbehaved to a different school would not stop the misconduct from recurring.
