NILAI: Teacher Azizan Manap may have failed to follow a directive to use a cane to discipline a problematic pupil but he had no intention of causing injury, said Deputy Education Minister Datuk Chong Sin Woon.
Chong who met the teacher, better known as Cikgu Azizan, on Wednesday, said he also wanted to personally meet the parents of the 11-year-old pupil to resolve the matter amicably.
“In this case, we know that the teacher may have failed to abide by the ministry’s directive which stipulates that he can only use a cane as the harshest punishment.
“For female students with indiscipline, they can only be given verbal warnings,” he said.

Boy’s family may resort to civil action
NILAI: While the teachers are happy, the family of the 11 year-old-boy who was allegedly slapped by Cikgu Azizan is unhappy that the charge against the teacher has been withdrawn – and is considering a civil suit against him.
The boy’s 45-year-old mother, who only wished to be known as Mas, said the family had sufficent evidence to support their claim.
“We have photographs and a medical report to prove that our son was slapped and that he suffered injury to his cheek,” she said, adding that the boy was the youngest of five siblings.
The woman claimed the school did not tell her or her husband that their son had disciplinary problems.
“We were never told that he gave them problems. We were only told after the slapping incident,” she said.
Mas claimed the family knew that their son had bought glue but said he used it to repair punctures on his bicycle tyres.
She said the family was weighing their options and did not rule out taking legal action against Cikgu Azizan.

TEACHER Azizan Manap, who was to go on trial for allegedly hurting a standard five pupil, was given a discharge not amounting to acquittal by the Seremban magistrates’ court today.
The case, under Section 323 of the Penal Code for causing hurt, was also withdrawn.
The case of the senior assistant in charge of pupil affairs at a primary school in Nilai drew a crowd of teachers to the courthouse this morning in a show of solidarity.
Their presence made it one of the rare occasions teachers, who are government employees, have protested in support of a colleague whom they say was only carrying out his duties to discipline a pupil.
Azizan, who recently began work at SK Taman Semarak and was put in charge of discipline, had been dealing with the pupil reportedly caught for sniffing glue, fighting and bullying.
Magistrate Mohd Zaki Abd Rahman in announcing that Azizan was given a discharge not amounting to acquittal ordered the court to return RM500 bail to the accused.

Teachers unite for “Cikgu Azizan” who will face assault charges in disciplining student
KUALA LUMPUR: Teachers were called to lend moral support to their peer who will be brought to court on Tuesday after being accused of asssaulting a student in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.
Identified only as “Cikgu Azizan”, the teacher was said to have slapped a student whom he claimed had sniffed glue, involved in bullying cases and skip school.
National Union of The Teaching Profession (NUTP) in a statement on Friday has expressed support for Azizan and urged members to show support to Azizan.
“NUTP will provide legal service to defend this teacher. At the same time, NUTP would like to call on all teachers in Malaysia to give moral support by coming to the court on Dec 19, 8.30am at the Seremban magistrate court,” the statement read, which was signed by NUTP secretary-general, Henry Tan Huat Hock.
“He was charged because he took disciplinary action against the student. For your information, he did that because the student were sniffing glue on school grounds and influenced three other students to do the same.
“The student was also involved in bullying cases where he had hit other students and he skipped school by climbing the school fence,” the website said in an article posted yesterday.
Sokongan Moral Untuk Cikgu Azizan
Kerana ketegasan seorang guru mengajar dan mendidik anak muridnya, beliau kini bakal dihadapkan ke Mahkamah pada 19 Disember 2017 Selasa ini.
Beliau yang dikenali sebagai Cikgu Azizan merupakan guru yang tegas dalam disiplin murid-murid, kes yang berat dan berulang seperti menghidu gam, membuli, bergaduh dan banyak lagi.
Kes ini juga mendapat sokongan daripada YDP Sekolah berkenaan, dengan turut merasa bimbang dengan sikap ibu bapa yang mengambil langkah membesarkan kes hingga ke mahkamah sedangkan kesalahan datang dari anak sendiri.
