Another school fiasco has taken place if the reports about theschoolchildren in Sekolah Kebangsaan Seri Pristana in Sungai Buloh are correct.The children were required to use the changing room next to the toilet as amakeshift canteen because the canteen itself was closed for the fasting month.Predictably, the DPM has ordered a probe and probably the other education minister will express some regret over the incident. This is not the first time such ugliness hasmarred our school halls.In 2010, the principal of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tunku Abdul RahmanPutra in Johor made it to the news for making racial remarks against her Chineseand Indian students.Typically, in such incidents after the furor has died down all is forgotten.
