The Ministry of Education (MOE) is serious about the allegation that there is still the practice of physical menstrual spot checks among female students in schools.

Senior Minister of Education, Datuk Dr. Radzi Jidin shared that his party will ensure that such practices are eradicated from the institutions under the Ministry of Education.

Datuk Dr. Radzi Jidin took to his official Facebook page to showcase his visit to a school in Setapak (right as he returned from his trip to Sarawak), where the alleged menstrual spot checks took place.

He wrote, “Upon my arrival from Kuching at KLIA, I went straight to a school in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur, to get information on the alleged practises of physical menstruation checks among female students. Also with me were the Secretary-General of the MOE and the Director-General of Education Malaysia.”

“I take the allegations on this matter seriously. If there is such a practice in any MOE institution, we are committed to ensuring that it does not continue to happen.”

During his visit to the school, he spoke with and received comments from the students, without the presence of any of the teachers or wardens, before taking up the information he has received with the authoritative figures of the school.

“My arrival tonight is to listen and get feedback directly from the students at the school. In addition, we also heard explanations from school principals and teachers. We will refine the matters that were informed during the meeting,”

“MOE is always committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment in schools and hostels. This is to create prosperous schools for all,” he added.

Hearing that such practices are still being conducted in schools is quite worrisome though we’re happy that MOE was quick to step in upon hearing the allegations.

Menstrual checks are a huge invasion of privacy and a form of abuse of power by educators, and it needs to stop.
