Teacher attempts suicide after show-cause letter

Woman breaks down after months of alleged ‘torture’ by the headmistress of a Klang school, says report.
suicidePETALING JAYA: A Tamil school teacher tried to commit suicide after enduring months of alleged “torture” and bullying from her headmistress.
The Star Online reported that the last straw for the 33-year-old woman came when she was given a show-cause letter for supposedly not answering calls from the office, and being rude to the headmistress, last week.
The mother of two, who teaches Mathematics and English at the school in Klang, claimed that the headmistress had been picking on her since she got transferred to the school in January.
Last Friday, the teacher took a concoction of bleach and tablets, but her husband discovered it and took her to the hospital.
The portal also quoted the husband as saying his wife had been unhappy since her transfer to the school and that she often appeared troubled, due to problems at work.
Despite this, the woman, who had been teaching for the past 16 years, wants to continue teaching.
According to the report, several other teachers had also lodged reports with the Education Ministry against the headmistress in June.
Deputy Education Minister P Kamalanathan was reported as saying he would look into the case.
