Being an Asian kid means that education always, always comes first, especially when our society values education over ethics.
And it’s been like this for years.
For example, Haffiz took to his Twitter account to recall something that happened to his brother nine years ago. Apparently, his brother, who was in the ‘behind classes’ in his primary school was made to arrange the chairs and tables in their exam hall for UPSR while the students in the ‘front classes’ were given revision classes for their exams.
My brother student "kelas belakang" in his primary school
Nak dekat UPSR, cikgu suruh student2 "kelas belakang" angkat kerusi & meja ke dewan untuk persediaan UPSR-
-WHILE STUDENT2 KELAS DEPAN TNGH ADA KELAS INTENSIF UPSR https://t.co/KzYRbQ1Yrx

He wrote, “My brother was a student in the ‘back classes’ of his primary school. When it was nearing UPSR, the teacher told the students from the ‘back classes’ to carry chairs and tables to the exam hall to prepare for the UPSR exams, while the students from ‘front classes’ had intensive UPSR classes.”
Haffiz’s post comes in response to Teach For Malaysia‘s posting asking, “What examples of education inequity do you have to share #Twitterjaya?”
The teachers of the school could have easily appointed students from other years to help with the chairs and tables if the assistance was needed, this way all the standard six students could have equally attended the intensive UPSR classes.
Furthermore, wouldn’t the students in the ‘behind classes’ need the intensive classes more than the students in the ‘front classes’ who probably already knew how to study on their own (I mean, they’re in the front classes for a reason).
“The worst trait a teacher can have is being judgmental towards their own students,” Haffiz added.
Students should be able to feel comfortable with their teachers, instead of fearing that they’ll be ridiculed and left out of additional educational classes if their results are not as good as the others.
