TEACHERS who expressed relief that colleague Azizan Manap will no longer face trial for allegedly causing hurt to a pupil said his case highlights the difficulties in educating youths today.

Rashidah Mohd Abd Rahman, who has been teaching for 17 years, said she was still concerned even though Azizan’s case had been withdrawn.

  • What happened to the slap kid? Its still wrong for a teacher slapping a child in school. The kid deservead a better treatment. If the teacher report to AADK or police earlier, the kid wouldnt'nt react till today. All the teachers fault.
