  • I pray that the current government be able to see that our education is breaking down. 'The youth is our nation's future; the teachers, our nation's pride.' It's about time we need to uplift teachers' broken spirits and mend students' broken dreams. ^_^v

  • Much as teachers would like to be dedicated and committed to their job, the problem of society has broken some of the teachers' ideology. Corruption in the government has yet to be eradicated to make the teaching of values more effective. Children only imitate what they see. They might soon become corrupt too, when they see their parents doing it
