Let me give you a brief overview on the real happenings in our education system now.
Student A is a student in a Boarding School A. Being a young teen, he's exposed to peer influence and such. Staying in hostel, he only has friends and teachers to guide him in every day life. Student B is a thief who gets a kick out of stealing all his friends valuables. One day when they've had enough of Student B, Student A and his group of friends went to warn Student B. Student A actually grabbed Student's B shirt collar and gave verbal warning to him about stealing their belongings, which is not what he should've done in the first place. They should've just report Student B to the teachers or Warden and let them take appropriate action against Student B. Stupid stupid move by young hot-blooded teenagers, really! Anyway, words got out to the teacher and so Student A got transferred to another boarding school while some who beat up Student B got expelled.
So Student A went to the new school with hope to open up a new chapter. He knew what he did was wrong, and he went through hell because of that. MUNGKIN DIA telah insaf lah. However, during his first few days staying there, the Warden, let's call him Warden A, came to see him to ta'aruf. Warden A asked Student A of his previous fault at the previous school. So he told the truth. Then while being the so-called responsible warden giving advice to Student A, he slapped him for 4-5 times. Just to show him that he's got a
So now tell me, as Student A has been staying in the hostel for past couple of years, his teachers had been the single source for him to learn about behaviors and life in general, isn't it? But when teachers start to show BAD EXAMPLE to students, it's no wonder that kes pukul and other type of similar cases involving school kids are widely spread in our system nowadays, no?
Teachers should give GOOD examples to students, but instead they do things according to their nafs, not mind. Nak kata takdak akai, dah dipilih menjadi cikgu berdasarkan kelayakan. Furthermore, he has been given the honor to be a warden by the respected school. So what was he thinking? That he needs to beat up students so that will teach students not to beat up others? Wow! Is that reverse psychology or what?
Let's take a thorough look at the situation, and think it through. Student A was involved in the kes pukul because he took things into his own hand, followed his nafs instead of akal and went to warn Student B in a harsh way not to STEAL from them anymore. While Warden A tampar bertubi-tubi Student A in order to warn him not to break the rules in HIS school. Couldn't he have done it in a proper way? Like couseling and such? Must he use FORCE to BEAT UP Student A just to warn him? After all, we already agreed that it was a wrong thing to do when Student A did it, so why must we excuse Warden A when he did the same thing? Perhaps he should be expelled from the system, as he went a notch higher than student A by actually beat him up instead of just cekak collar baju. If we are to control the behaviour of our students, the system must also closely monitor the behaviour of the teachers towards the students. Then only, we could create harmony and balance in the education system in our country.
So to all the Wardens A out there, watch out. All eyes are on you now!
