A PORTAL to combat bullying in schools was launched today, allowing incidents to be reported to the Ministry of Education directly, Education Minister Radzi Jidin said.
According to Radzi, the portal, https://www.moe.gov.my/aduanbuli, provides three channels for members of the public, parents or guardians to report bullying in school.
The channels are through a special hotline at 03-8884 9352, email at [email protected] or through the ministry’s public complaint management system (Sispa).
“The special hotline can be contacted round the clock and every complaint will be responded to immediately by the ministry,” he said at a joint press conference with Home Minister Hamzah Zainudin.
Radzi also launched the Sekolahku Sejahtera: Sepakat dan Selamat programme, a joint venture between the home and education ministries to addressing the issues of bullying and drug abuse among students.
Radzi said 122 people nationwide had been convicted bullying between January and July this year.,
While calling on all quarters to fully utilise the portal, he said the complainants could also request their identity be kept confidential.
“What’s important is accurate information for us to launch an investigation. Each complaint will be recorded and the complainants’ information can also be kept confidential if they wish,” he said.
Radzi said the Education Ministry will not compromise on the issue of bullying and that school administrators have been instructed not to hide any cases.
Meanwhile, Hamzah said he had also instructed the police to give more attention to bullying.
“The young generation tends to think that bullying is normal. That’s why we want to reduce it.
“The police should give more attention to this issue, and they should also organise awareness programmes and briefing sessions at schools,” he said. – Bernama, August 18, 2022.
