More than 25,000 senior teachers who are eligible for promotion under the time-based promotion scheme are in a dilemma.
They must now sign a declaration saying they are willing to be transferred to any part of the country, including Sabah and Sarawak, before they are promoted. These teachers, mostly women above 40, fear they will have to uproot themselves which will disrupt their family lives.
From an article in The Star, 10th October 2006.
Guess what, I'm one of those women but not yet above 40 lah...:)
But I face the same dilemma and so will every teacher once he or she is 'in the zone'. But if we don't sign that paper, we don't get promoted. And if we don't get promoted, we are stuck where we are. Is that good or bad??? Hmmm, I think this is indeed what they call a dilemma.
