Great news! We no longer have to be embarrassed by third world images of Selangor schoolchildren eating their lunch in a school changing room, with Deputy Education Minister P Kamalanathan declaring the matter "resolved".
"The headmaster had good intentions but chose a poor location," he explained by way of understatement, before giving details of the relocated eating facility at the school.
But now that it is all over, it's time for the blame game to begin. The headmaster of SK Seri Pristana in Sungai Buloh has been accused of locking out a group of irate parents demanding answers Wednesday. They were only admitted onto the school property when Minister Kamalanathan arrived on the scene.
And these parents have rejected the excuse for the "temporary" canteen near the toilets, which is that major renovations of the main canteen were taking place. They said only a set of doors were being changed and there was further anger about witch hunt carried out by the teachers in just the past 48 hours.Children have been asked who it was who took the photos of the now-infamous "temporary" canteen which have since gone viral on social media thus sparking this brouhaha.
