I don’t have much time to write for the time being as I am quite tight with my other personal errant jobs that I need to attend to for next few days.
Somehow I just scribble a bit as I am also too worried hearing complains from parents whose children are in the boarding schools country wide; who are apparently not served with food in the weekend.
It appears that all boarding schools nation wide are not opening up their kitchens and dining halls on Saturdays and Sundays and parents are asked to bring back their children home.
The reason is simple. The schools are not having enough funds to provide food and getting the students back to their parents and guardians is one way of addressing the issue.
For parents who have their children in the boarding school far from home now has to send pocket money for their children through their accounts to ensure that their children have enough food in the weekends.
Personally I don’t have that problem as my children are grown up but I am concerned about the situation which directly implies that the government now is too poor even to maintain the most basic need of growing up children that is food.
The Education Ministry is unable to unravel the financial anguish and grief suffered by the schools and it touches the nerve of parents and I just cannot comprehend how the situation could have stretched to this extent.
This has never happened before in any country, even in economically poor rated nations but it happens here in Malaysia. We are creating another history.
The situation is already ridiculously unbearable and hurting but my prayer continues hoping for the news to be untrue.
Who is accountable for this happening? Where have all the money allocated for the students gone to?
We at witnessing the extremes; the other extreme we hear and see wives of Ministers and the big names spending shopping sprees in France, London and Middle East to the tune of millions of ringgit while on the other extreme we witness students having no more food on the weekends.
Why can’t the government leaders sacrifice their first class travel and vacation? Why let the growing up children to undertake the sacrifice? Where is the fairness here?
Where is the point of reconciliation between these extremes? Can anyone enlighten these parents and the rakyat as a whole?
What happen to the big talks of transforming Malaysia to be fully industrialized nation with higher per capita income than it is today?
What happen to the slogan of ‘Rakyat didahulukan, pencapaian diutamakan’? How can we get the ‘pencapaian’ when we can’t even give food for the students we sponsor?
I stop here as everyone can already anticipate and foretell the sequent of events following this ruinous environment without exertion.
I don’t need to elaborate any further; I mean about the KPI of the government which has been widely talked about....it's all fallacies.
