Mahathir's Halfway Leadership

Reflections On Merdeka Day: Mahathir’s Halfway Leadership

August 28th, 2019
Reflections On Merdeka Day:  Mahathir’s Halfway Leadership
M. Bakri Musa (www.bakrimusa.com)
During the polio epidemic of the 1950s, ingenious engineers created the iron lungs and saved many lives, while skillful surgeons crafted nifty operations and salvaged countless paralyzed limbs.
Those advancements, though impressive, were what physician Lewis Thomas referred to as halfway technology. True technology came when Salk and Sabin produced their vaccines. Halfway technology is not only expensive but also does not address the basic problem.
Likewise with leadership; there is the true version and then there are the many halfway varieties. Halfway leadership too does not solve problems; in fact it compounds them. It is also expensive both in terms of the direct damages inflicted as well as in the lost opportunities.
Malaysia was blessed with a few true leaders during her first half. Tengku Abdul Rahman inspired the multiracial population, hitherto (and still is) suspicious of each other, on a single pursuit – the country’s independence – and successfully negotiatedfor it. Thus the nation was spared its war of independence and Malaysians today are unabashed admirers of their former colonizers.
Economist Ungku Aziz leveraged the powerful religious aspiration of Hajj to make Malays save. In the process he ushered them into the modern economy, making Tabung Haji one of the region’s biggest financial institutions. Chief Justice Tun Suffian elevated the country’s judiciary to be the envy of the region.
During Malaysia’s second half, Mahathir’s leadership dominated, from 1981 until he retired in 2003. Then in May 2018, at 92, he toppled the ruling coalition that he once led. Its leader, Najib Razak, was Mahathir’s protégé and chosen successor. The irony!
A visitor today would be impressed on landing at Kuala Lumpur’s gleaming international airport. The smooth, undulating freeways into the city, beautifully landscaped, make you feel as if you are still in the First World. The glut of five-star hotels adds to that aura.
Impressive though those may be, they are but halfway developments, showy artifacts of modernity. They cannot hide the stark realities that often intrude, like hideous acnes through thick makeup. Malaysian schools and universities for example, are an embarrassment. Minister of Education Mahathir initiated the decline in the late 1970s. Later as Prime Minister, he greased the slide.
Mahathir was also instrumental in the state’s massive involvement in Islamic affairs. Today the religious bureaucracy exceeds the Papal one in budget, personnel, and most pernicious of all, power. While the Pope could only influenceCatholics, Malaysian state-employed ulama controlMalays, in activities as well as thoughts.
This huge and sinister religious serpent that Mahathir created is now striking back. Witness the current raging and unnecessary controversies over a radical, Indian-Muslim dropout physician-turned- preacher, and the introduction khat (Arabic calligraphy) in schools. Both do not contribute to the economy. On the contrary, they come in the way of improving it.
This huge Islamic beast sucks up precious resources that could have been used to tackle pressing social problems, like rampant drug abuse, uncontrolled HIV infections, and the epidemic of abandoned babies. Those appalling social pathologies disproportionately inflict Malays. In their pursuit of Heaven, those religious types believe in first making Muslims endure Hell on earth.
As for Tabung Haji, it had to be bailed out recently. For the judiciary, a high-profile attorney was once caught on videotape aggressively lobbying on the phone the then Chief Justice. Among that lawyer’s clients was Prime Minister Mahathir.
Mahathir tolerated corruption; a necessary lubricant for a creaky bureaucracy, he rationalized. That attitude, and the culture it nurtured, produced today’s unbridled venality, with former Prime Minister Najib and a dozen of his ministers and aides now facing criminal charges of corruption. Mahathir of course absolved himself of any responsibility.
Mahathir was and still is a halfway leader. He is ensnared by what the young Nigerian writer Chimamanda Adichie termed “the trap of a single story.” Mahathir’s self-fabricated sole narrative remains unchanged:  Malays are stupid and lazy; Chinese, wily and greedy.
Nor could Mahathir overcome that subtle and crippling Malay cultural trap of terhutang budi(debt of gratitude). His earlier support for Najib had nothing to do with the latter’s talent (Najib had none) but an expression of that old sentiment. In early 1970s Najib’s father, then Prime Minister Razak, resurrected Mahathir’s crumbling political prospects.
At 94, Mahathir has not much time. He ignores his most crucial assignment – to ensure a peaceful and predictable transition of power. He is back to his trademark destructive trait – fomenting unnecessary confusion and divisive uncertainty, especially with respect to his possible successor.
True leaders believe in their followers. When their initiatives fail, those leaders would reexamine them and formulate new ones, not blame their followers. Mahathir revels in stereotyping and blaming them.
In his book Robert Kuok, A Memoir, the author quoted Deng Xiaoping at their only meeting. “Mr. Kuok, they all say I am the one that is bringing this huge and rapid development in China. They are wrong. When I opened the door for China, they were all pushing me from behind. They are still pushing me.”
A variation on Lao Tzu’s theme – when a true leader’s work is done, the people would say, “We did it ourselves!”
What Deng did not reveal, as evident from Ezra Vogel’s biography of the man, was that there were many who opposed Deng’s opening of China. His wisdom was in notlistening to or heeding them. That’s true leadership, discerning and then encouraging the wise instincts in their followers, and ignoring those less blessed.
Mahathir panders to and exploits the raw emotions and base instincts of Malays. His championing Islam is not to emancipate Malays, as the Prophet did to the Bedouins of the 7thCentury, but as a political tool, and a very dangerous one. Likewise with Malay special privileges; Malays are fed the illusion of success and reflected glory with the opulence of their sultans and UMNO elite, their rent-seeking spoils sold as “entrepreneurial success.”
Mahathir Version 2 is no enhancement. He is still obsessed with iron lungs and weakened limbs. He does not see the need for a vaccine, much less work on one. Today’s slew of UMNO leaders indicted for corruption is only one malignant manifestation of Mahathir’s halfway leadership. His once much-hyped Vision 2020, is just that – hype. Not a word from him now. It was never a vision, only a slogan.
His last hurrah was in ejecting Najib and his Barisan coalition. Malaysians are grateful for that. That gratitude however, is not without bounds, and Mahathir is determined to breach that, thus betraying the trust Malaysians gave him in the last election. He is back to his old spiteful self, provoking controversies and then blaming others for stirring them up.
Mahathir wants to burden Malaysia with another Najib-caliber successor in Azmin Ali. Time to stop Mahathir. Besides, if he could not achieve his goals when he led the nation for 23 years and when he was much younger, there is little hope for him now that he is nearing 95. Time to disabuse the man of his Messiah delusion.
Mahathir should exit gracefully. Entice him with whatever it would take. Award him whatever title he craves and shower him with all the luxuries he desires. A lifetime corporate jet privilege and rent-free penthouse suite at his favorite Petronas Towers would be much cheaper than the damage he is inflicting and continues to inflict on Malaysia. If those do not work, not-so-gently remind him of the sorry fate that awaits the many Third World leaders who overstayed.
Malaysia deserves a true leader as she enters her 63rdyear of Merdeka.

Fuck you like an animal

Which Malaysian Cabinet Minister has ever resign on their own?
Which Malaysian Cabinet Minister under PH has resign after his worldwide coverage sex video with another man was circulated?
Which Malaysian Cabinet Minister who have committed murder, money laundering and sexual assault ever resign?
Which Malaysian Cabinet Minister is not protected by the Prime Minister, PDRM, MACC, Bank Negara and AG for their wrongdoing?
When Mahathir said that there is NO ROOM FOR ANWAR is correct because no Cabinet Minister would want to lose their benefits.
Salary of Ministers are from RM64,000 to RM86,000 a year excluding housing, travelling, food, utilities allowance.
BUT THE WAY MAHATHIR ATTACK AND MOCK ANWAR WAS THE WORD "NO ROOM FOR ANWAR" MEANS THE FORMER WILL NEVER HAND OVER THE PREMIERSHIP TO THE LATTER.
AT THE SAME TIME MAHATHIR IS TELLING SC, MACC AND PDRM TO ACT AGAINST UMNO BY SHUTTING IT DOWN SO THAT UMNO MEMBERS WILL FLOCK TO BERSATU.
MAHATHIR HAS NEVER BEEN SINCERE IN HIS WORDS AND PROMISES.
THAT IS WHY INVESTORS ARE NOT COMING BACK TO MALAYSIA.
AS LONG AS MAHATHIR IS PRIME MINISTER OF MALAYSIA, NO ONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD WILL BRING THEIR MONEY TO MALAYSIA.
EVEN TOURISTS ARE NOW BOYCOTTING MALAYSIA.
IN TWO MONTHS TIME WHEN BERSATU KILL OFF PKR AND DAP BY TAKING OVER THE WHOLE CABINET, IT WILL BE TOO LATE TO ACT.
ONE SHOULD NOT FORGET WHO IS THE IGP.
ONE SHOULD NOT FORGET WHO IS THE CHIEF OF MACC.
ONE SHOULD NOT FORGET THE TRAITORS INSIDE PKR WHO HAVE COLLAPSE THE ECONOMY OF THIS NATION.
ONE SHOULD NOT FORGET WHO IS THE ONE CAUGHT ON VIDEO HAVING SEX WITH ANOTHER MAN.

Hussein of Steadyaku47

Steadyaku47 stop blogging for many months:  And when he started blogging again, all postings on Emilia and Naza was no more. Why? Was he paid by Naza to take them down? Even now there is still nothing on Emilia or Naza. And we have not heard of any settlement between Emilia and her husband Dato Wira SM Faisal Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin….. even though steadyaku47 has been going around claiming that he has stopped writing to allow Emilia and Faisal to negotiate a settlement.

Now maybe Hussein wants more from Naza? And Naza said No. So he starts “The Truth about Naza” to “persuade” Naza into paying him more? True or false?
Hussein, who lives Downunder in Melbourne, drives a Jaguar S Type and an S Class Mercedes.. How does a blogger afford a Jaguar? Some questions need to be answered by this blogger down under!
Maybe all the hard-hitting articles that Hussein has been writing is his way of taking care of his periok nasi?  Maybe the old man is loaded from his blogging duties….another Blogger ala that Petra guy in UK?

Cabinet Ministers who live in luxury never understand poverty

Cabinet approves National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan

The Cabinet has approved the implementation of the National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP), announced Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo (photo) today.
The plan is estimated to cost RM21.6 billion and will span five years, from 2019 to 2023. It aims to expand the existing fibre network and improve internet connectivity in the country.
In a statement, Gobind expected the plan to boost Malaysia’s digital economy and provide a platform for 5G, among other technologies.
“The ministry wishes to announce that the implementation of the NFCP has been approved by the cabinet.
“[...] The NFCP’s main targets include the provision of an average (internet) speed of 30 Mbps in 98 percent of populated areas and gigabit availability in selected industrial areas by the year 2020, and (in) all state capitals by 2023,” he said.
As previously mentioned by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng, the plan will be funded by the Universal Service Provision (USP) Fund managed by Gobind’s ministry through the Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).
Available funds to eligible parties are a full fund, matching fund or partial fund.
“These financing methods will help reduce the expenditure of the service provider, and the cost savings will benefit consumers through the provision of affordable services,” Gobind said.
Digital infrastructure coordination
As part of the NFCP, infrastructure projects will be undertaken to narrow the digital gap between urban and rural areas, including Orang Asli communities.
Gobind said a special task force will be established to coordinate such projects in schools, police stations, hospitals and libraries.
“The task force will ensure the existing digital infrastructure is optimised while reducing duplication and cost of building new digital infrastructure in these selected institutions.
“Where necessary, the special task force will deliberate on the need for the provision of infrastructure in other areas, including best practices available for implementation,” he said.
The NFCP was outlined in Lim’s Budget 2019 speech last Nov.
Earlier this year, Gobind launched an NFCP pilot project on the High-Speed Broadband System in Jasin, Malacca before expanding it to George Town, Penang.
**********************************************************
Only 5% Malaysians have the luxury of living above their means.
30% Malaysians can live a fairly decent life.
The 1% holds the nation to ransom by high cost, high taxes and control the life of others.
The 1% do not care or wish to go to the root cause of poverty in Malaysia.
The 1% only talk and act like an arrogant prostitute using race and religion to control the nation.
The 1% misuse their position and power.
Today we can dump billions into National Fiberisation and Connectivity but what is the use for the poor who have no proper shelter, no electricity, no clean water, sick in health and no money.
All kinds of big projects are feeding the elites and not the poor.
Malaysia cannot develop anymore with an uncaring government who look out for themselves only.
So how much WAS the commission PAID TO Gobind and Mahathir's children?
WHEN DID GOBIND SINGH AND MAHATHIR EVER GO TO THE GROUND TO CHECK ON THE REALITY FACING MALAYSIANS DAILY.

Mahathir has to accept defeat

Samurai bonds not the only way to raise funds, economist tells govt

PETALING JAYA: An economist has urged Putrajaya to explore other options for raising funds following reports that the government is considering a second offer of Samurai bonds from Japan.

Speaking to FMT, Yeah Kim Leng said such options include monetising assets and selling off stakes in government-linked companies (GLCs) operating in areas where there are sufficient private sector investors.
He was commenting on Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s remarks yesterday that the government is studying another offer for Samurai bond as Japan is making a “very cheap” loan available.
While local bonds may be a more prudent option, he added, monetising assets or selling off stakes in GLCs is more ideal.
“In short, avoid debt, and if (that is) not feasible, borrow in our own currency unless there are strategic reasons to take foreign currency loans,” the Sunway University Business School economics professor said.
He said assets like airports and ports could be sold in the form of real estate investment trusts.
“Government holdings of GLC shares across various sectors such as finance, industrials, healthcare and education can be offloaded to increase private sector participation,” he added.
Abu Sofian Yaacob, an economics lecturer at the Putra School of Business in Universiti Putra Malaysia, agreed that local bonds are a better option than Samurai bonds as they involve almost no risk and cost nearly the same, if hedging is taken into account.
Putrajaya previously said it might consider issuing another Samurai bond if it could get rates similar to the 0.63% in the earlier issuance of 200 billion yen, although this was without a currency swap, a form of hedging.
Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said the cost of the bond after a currency swap would be close to 4%, similar to that of Malaysian Government Securities.
He told FMT that alternatively, the government could look into plugging any existing tax gaps, review its budget and carry out more collaborations with the private sector to ease the pressure on its finances.
“But eventually, the government will still have to borrow money either locally or abroad.”
Abu said there were concerns which the government should address before opting for another Samurai bond, including why Japan is offering Malaysia loans at such low rates.
“Is there a quid pro quo, where in return Japan will be able to acquire strategic Malaysian assets such as Khazanah Nasional’s stake in IHH Healthcare?”
Yeah said while interest rates are inching to “near zero” in some advanced countries, bonds must be cost-effective after the inclusion of hedging costs.

A homemaker like me can bring in US$50 Billion investment into Malaysia.  Yet the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Daim and the cock sucker of Malaysia cannot do that.  Instead they go around selling our assets and borrowing money from Brunei, Turkey, Singapore, Vietnam and Japan.
I already mentioned that as long as Mahathir remain as the Prime Minister, no investor will want to step into Malaysia.
Mahathir has to accept defeat and quit.
Using PDRM, MACC, AG, threat, money, race and religion to shut the truth no longer work.

Old man has lost it

http://malaysiaflipflop.blogspot.com/2019/04/mahathir-must-get-rid-of-rejected-ones.html

A country need capable leaders with foresight to develop.
No country that runs on race and religion ever develop.
Malaysia will remain a backward Nation as long as we have a leader who love to gamble with race and religion all the time.
Old man had groomed thieves, murderers and scammers because they have common interest.
All the tactics of the past are being used again today.
The lies and stealing continue.
Policies remain the same forgetting the present and future are moving faster than the bullet train.
SST has never worked for any country but here we return to it to serve only one race and the elite while the minority pays for everything.
The reason why PH government cannot work:

1.       People in the Cabinet knows Mahathir cannot live long, so it is better to grab all the opportunities in hand now.
2.       People in the Cabinet work for themselves, family members and friends.
3.       People in the Cabinet has no foresight.
4.       People in the Cabinet are star strike with first class treatment.
5.       People in the Cabinet are easily influence by not having to pay a single sen for their daily use.
6.       People in the Cabinet knows their position can open many opportunities.
7.       People in the Cabinet are bewitched by their own words and command that can influence the Rakyat and Royalty.
8.       People in the Cabinet believe they are untouchable.
9.       People in the Cabinet believe they have the right to insult, mock and use the Rakyat.
10.   People in the Cabinet think their position and power will last forever.

OLD POLICY NO LONGER WORK
OLD IDEAS THAT DIED CENTURY AGO CANNOT BE BROUGHT BACK ALIVE.
OLD SCAM AND LIES NO LONGER STAND.
OLD MAN SHOULD ACCEPT DEFEAT WITH DIGNITY.
OLD MAN SHOULD ACCEPT HIS PRESENCE IS THE REASON WHY US$600 BILLION LEFT AND INVESTORS NO LONGER WANT TO BE IN MALAYSIA.
OLD MAN SHOULD ACCEPT RACE AND RELIGION NO LONGER NEEDED IN MALAYSIA.

TODAY ALL MALAYSIANS SHOULD ACCEPT PH GOVERNMENT IS WORKING FOR THEMSELVES FOR THE GOOD PAY, BENEFITS AND POWER TO ALL CONTRACTS AND ASSETS OF THIS NATION.

IT IS THE BEST TIME TO GRAB AND GRAB BEFORE THE COMING OF NEXT PRIME MINISTER AND GE 15.

Beware of Rina Harun

https://newmalaysiatimes.com/2018/10/16/i-can-work-better-as-a-dato-seri/
For the past one year while everyone goes after Black Shoe Minister and Zakir Naik, Rina has been busy siphoning out our assets to proxies for the old man.
So it will not be a surprise Rina will be the new Economic Minister.
Meanwhile those jumping for joy for Zuraida to take over Rina's Ministry should be more careful what they wish for.  Zuraida will be the next scapegoat for the missing assets.
There are two possibility now for the old man.
Prepare Rina for PM 8.
Prepare Mustapha for DPM.

Do not expect much from PDRM.
Zakir Naik being the most powerful foreigner cum Malaysian will be accorded with red carpet and well behave Policemen.

The Most Powerful Man In Malaysia is BATANG NAIK SENDIRI

People think the most powerful man is the Prime Minister.
People think the most powerful man is the Agong.
People think the most powerful nut is Hadi.
People think the most powerful cock sucker is Azmin Ali.
EVERYONE NOT THINKING.
ZAKIR NAIK A FOREIGNER CAN EASILY TAKE OVER THIS NATION WITHOUT A SWEAT.
LOOK AT THE VIDEO.

IF I AM ONE OF THE ABOVE, I WOULD BE WETTING MYSELF.
WITHIN A SHORT TIME OF TWO YEARS, ZAKIR NAIK HAS BECOME THE MOST POWERFUL CREATURE TO WALK OVER THE PRIME MINISTER, AGONG, HADI AND COCK SUCKER.  ME THINK IT IS GAME OVER FOR BERSATU, AMANAH, DAP, PKR, PAS AND UMNO.
THE NEW PARTY TO TAKE OVER MALAYSIA WILL BE BATANG NAIK SENDIRI.

Mahathir and his Cabinet should resign

Khat lessons subject to PTA approval, to be referred as 'Jawi lessons'

The government will press on with its plan to introduce khat lessons for Year 4 students in national-type schools, although a reduced lesson plan failed to appease critics.
However, the lessons will be made optional and would only be taught if approved by parent-teacher associations, parents, and pupils.
The Education Ministry (MOE) said this in a statement today, following this morning’s cabinet meeting.
“In the latest discussions, the cabinet has decided to maintain last week’s decision to proceed with the introduction of Jawi script, but it would only be implemented if agreed upon by PTAs, parents, and pupils of national-type schools. National schools will continue as before […]
“The cabinet has also decided that the Jawi script would continue to be used and would be introduced as ‘Jawi script’ instead of ‘khat’, and would only be introduced optionally at a basic level to Year 4 students beginning 2020, Year 5 students beginning 2021, and Year 6 students beginning 2022 at national-type schools.
“The MOE hopes that following the cabinet decision, the issue of introducing Jawi script in national-type schools would no longer be raised inaccurately such that it causes confusion,” it said.
Khat is a Malay word referring to calligraphy in general, whereas Jawi is one of several scripts that had been used to write the Malay language. The Jawi script had been adapted from the Arabic script with some changes made to suit the Malay language.
The government had planned to introduce six pages of Jawi calligraphy lesson in the Year Four Bahasa Malaysia textbook beginning next year.
Following backlash from Chinese and Tamil education groups, however, the cabinet decided to reduce the lessons to three pages and make it an optional subject.
Nevertheless, the compromise failed to appease critics. The United Chinese School Committees Association (Dong Zong) in particular had opposed the move, which it claims uses khat lessons as a medium to spread Islam and forcing it upon non-Muslim students. 
For the record, Education Minister Maszlee Malik had denied allegations that the new lessons are meant to ‘Islamise’ vernacular schools, but to help students recognise Malaysia’s heritage and identity.
****************************************************************
Never trust PTA to do anything for your children.
Parents are chosen base on one's connection or easily influence by Teachers and the school Principal.
Most of the parents chosen are Malay and one will be Non Malay.
The teachers in the association will be represented mostly by Malay and maybe one or two non Malay and they must follow what is instructed by the Principal.
My ex husband was involved with PTA for a total of 8 years and I know how the Principal manoeuvre into getting her way.
In today's school, all Principal are very political minded and racist in their action.  Principal have no respect for parents and concern for students.  Most Principal wants to achieve their KPI only.  Anything further is for the cause of their political party like PAS or UMNO and now Bersatu.
So do not be surprise when 90% of the school's PTA will opt for the teaching of Jawi.
Those in the Cabinet should not clap and pat themselves thinking they got their way with Mahathir on Khat/Jawi.
Mahathir had 22 years of experience in how things work and right now he is laughing at those Cabinet fools.
*************************************************************************

A partnership of parents and teachers


PTAs are about getting parents and teachers to cooperate in the best interest of the schools and their students.
FOR many Malaysians, the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) also known by its Malay acronym PIBG (Persatuan Ibu Bapa dan Guru), is a school-based organisation responsible for jogathons, walkathons and various other activities to raise funds.
However, these associations do much more than just generate additional income for schools.
The scope and functions of PTAs are set out in the Education (Parent-Teacher Associations) Regulations 1998, derived from the Education Act 1996.
The principal of every school is obliged to set up the association and all parents, guardians and teachers are considered members.
At the AGM, between five and 15 committee members are voted in. This is done in accordance with the constitution of the respective PTA. Meanwhile, the principal acts as an ex-officio and adviser to the association.
For practical reasons, the positions of treasurer and secretary are usually held by teachers.
As one former headmistress shares, “A teacher from the school is not likely to run off with the funds, and generally it is easier for them to keep records and file the minutes.”
Each PTA is tasked with keeping adequate financial records and preparing a yearly financial report; the account must be annually audited by two non-committee members who are elected by the committee.
Through an AGM consensus, the records may even be audited by a professional auditor.
The regulations also allow for the appointment of not more than two non-PTA members onto the committee by the relevant district education office.
Although PTAs are permitted to introduce curricular and co-curricular activities in schools, there are clauses indicating that they cannot interfere with a school’s administration or use the association as a means to air their dissent over the school’s principal, staff members or even the Education Ministry itself.
The rules also stipulate that a PTA is not allowed to form alliances with political parties, unions, societies or associations, including PTAs from other schools.
Productive partnership
Having attended his first PTA meet in April, Muhammad Ashraf Rahman reckons that the effort was well worth his time.
“My daughter has just started schooling, and I attended the AGM to get a feel of the school and meet her teachers,” he says.
“It was also good to network with other parents who are enthusiastic about supporting the school’s activities.”
He adds that parents should not be quick to blame teachers, and sees the PTA as an ideal avenue for him to share his ideas.
“We all need to play our part in combating social ills among youth, such as school gangsterism; it is not enough to simply sit back and say that teachers should do more.
“By showing up and discussing problems, we may find novel solutions to help our children do better in schools,” he says.
Puvaneswari Lingam agrees with this sentiment, although she admits that she usually only shows up for meetings once a year.
“I don’t have the time to attend meetings other than the AGM, but I stay updated with the other parents via email.
“That way, I can still volunteer my time at school events or functions that we hold for the children,” says the mother of two.
Parent Ling Su Lin says that apart from raising funds and responding to problems, PTAs can also serve to foster a sense of community within schools.
“By organising fun events during festivals or throughout the year, students and parents will start to identify themselves with the school.
“As many schools lack funds to pull off such activities, this is where PTAs can step in,” she says.
Meanwhile, teacher Ros Adibah says that the parental support at her primary school in Kelantan has made her job easier.
“It was hard work at first, convincing parents to take an interest in their children’s education,” she explains.
“Now that the school has managed to build a good rapport with them, it’s easier to talk to them about school issues such as discipline and helping motivate students to do better in their studies.”
Ros stresses that schools should take the time to develop bonds with parents and encourage them to be proactive.
“If you approach them only when you need funds, they will be turned off.
“It’s far more productive to continously engage them by asking for their ideas and opinions,” she says.
Poor attendance
Even so, it is no secret that many PTAs are riddled with poor attendance; most of the teachers interviewed for this article say that turnout is usually less than 30%.
Senior teacher Lee* says that with over 700 students at his primary school, only around 50 parents turned up for the AGM.
“On the first week of school, we can’t seem to get rid of the parents, but after that initial burst of effort they are nowhere to be found.
“We cannot force the parents to take an interest, but when problems arise out of PTA decisions, it is these ‘non-attendees’ who are the first to complain,” he says.
Lee adds that when the numbers are too low, the PTA is obliged to postpone its AGM because the quorum is not met.
“If we have to keep delaying the meeting, it’s hard for us to make decisions and plan out the activities for the year,” he says.
In a bid to attract parents to show up, some schools have even resorted to having lucky draws and holding student prize-giving ceremonies during the scheduled annual general meeting (AGM).
Even so, the allure of winning a toaster or watching their children receive trophies may not be enough.
“It’s not that I don’t care, but every meeting so far coincided with my daughters’ dance or tuition classes,” quips one parent.
Another parent says he is not concerned with PTA activities because “as long as my child is doing well in school and does not get into trouble, there is no reason for me to be involved ... what’s the point?”
A few parents have claimed that if they voiced their views, teachers will then victimise their children.
Secondary school teacher Khairul Ariffin says there is no real basis for these fears.
“As long as disagreements are expressed with civility, I highly doubt teachers will take their anger out on students,” he says.
“Unfortunately, although these claims are not true, the growing mistrust and disdain for teachers means that parents rather not take their chances.”
Legal adviser Eric Leong says that he has stopped attending meetings for more sedate reasons.
“They drag on for too long! With unnecessary speeches by the principal and the PTA chairman, there is barely enough time for actual discussion.
“I would rather meet-up with my son’s form teacher during report card days to find out what’s going on,” he says.
Similarly, Mawar* says that despite being a PTA committee member in a primary school in Kuala Lumpur, she does not find the association relevant to student needs.
“We are still organising jogathons and motivation camps even when students are not receptive to these events,” she says.
“When some of us try to make a suggestion to mend school problems, the headmistress shoots us down by saying that we cannot meddle with the school’s administrative affairs.
“What makes me really annoyed is that most of the committee members are more interested in ‘beautifying’ the school, rather than equipping classrooms with better learning materials.”
Hisham*, who is also a PTA committee member at a secondary school in Kedah, says that schools need to be more receptive to ideas from parents.
“The principal at my son’s school takes all of our suggestions as personal attacks, when we just want the best for our children.
“The mentality of school administration is to reject all ideas that are not in sync with its own.”
Going by secondary school teacher Ainon’s* experience, such frustrations can lead to some ugly situations.
“At the last PTA meeting, there was plenty of swearing and table-thumping — even my students do not behave that way!” she exclaims.
“There has been some friction between parents and the principal, but we should work on trying to solve problems, not create new ones.”
Ainon adds that while she and her colleagues are open to feedback, parents should avoid trying to micro-manage schools.
“The issue is when parents want to exert control over the way we do our jobs - will they like it if we told them how to raise their children?” she says.
Going the extra mile
Despite the various reasons for apathy and frustration, parent Wati* believes that more parents need to make themselves heard.
“A dynamic PTA can make a world of difference to a school’s environment.
“It is the best way for us to ensure that welfare of the students are looked after,” she says.
Relating the tussle between the school administration and its PTA, Wati claims that there is no proper record of how the school manages its donations.
“An example is when we held a fund-raiser for the less advantaged students,” she explains.
“A total of RM12,000 was collected, and the headmistress had informed the PTA committee that about 70 students each received RM20, a packet of rice and other food items. “To this day, we don’t have a detailed report on where the money went.”
Retired headmaster Mohan* thinks that while instances of fraud are rare, mismanagement and skewed priorities are serious problems within PTAs.
“While a donation of RM25 per student may not seem like much, it can accumulate to a substantial sum in a large school.
“Under the previous principal at my former school in Pahang, the PTA had used donations for lavish school dinners and buying door-gifts for parents at their meetings.
“As the school was in dire need of basic classroom facilities, these indulgences were a waste of resources,” he says.
For parent Teoh*, any misgivings between parents and teachers are set aside for the well-being of the school.
“The school’s allocation barely covers its utility bills,” says the PTA committee member of a school in Perak.
“With no budget this year for replacement teachers, to take over those who are on maternity leave, the PTA has to work together to raise funds and remedy the situation.
“At the end of the day, that’s what PTAs are for — to ensure that students receive the education they deserve.

Royalty should stop protecting Zakir Naik

Listen carefully Zakir Naik, you have no right whatsoever to tell  Malaysian Non Muslim and Non Malay to leave.  We are born Malaysians unlike you who is not a Malaysian.  You were given residentship by Kelantan, Terengganu, Perlis, Perak, Selangor and Pahang Royal Household because they are easily sway by your sweet words, but if they do read and understand the Quran, they will find the truth you lied to them. You are lucky our Royalty are stupid.

Furthermore, the Non Muslim and Non Muslim has more right than the Malays who came into Malaya later.  The real Bumiputra of this nation are the Orang Asli.

It is so obvious you too do not understand or bother to read the history of Malaysia.  Do not look down on Malaysians who are born here.

People like you should be lock up in a mental home.

Zakir Naik do not think you are well protected because you have control over the Royalty.  You have crossed the line against the Non Muslim and Non Malay too many times. Soon you will understand what is KARMA.
