National Union of the Teaching Profession (NUTP) president Hashim Adnan said the teachers were upset at being transferred to schools which were too far from the schools they were currently based in.
"For instance, a teacher who is teaching in Klang is being deployed to Sabak Bernam," he
told a press conference at the NUTP headquarters.
said 84 English option teachers and 16 Bahasa Malaysia option teachers were involved in the redeployment exercise in Selangor.
Teachers are transferred between the districts in the state to meet the shortage of language teachers in the rural areas, in support of the policy on Upholding BM and Strengthening English announced by the Government.
According to Hashim
, more than 20 teachers have lodged complaints with NUTP
to express their dissatisfaction.
"Teachers who are unhappy with their transfers are advised to appeal to the state education department," said Hashim
