A TEACHER who admitted in a Syariah Court in Bachok last Sunday to taking part in a beauty contest for transvestites would not be returning to teaching, but would be transferred to an administrative post, Berita Harian reported.

Education director-general Datuk Alimuddin Mohd Dom said transvestite teachers were not suitable for the job.

Teachers, he said, had to be good role models for their students.

"This case will be given priority because it could damage the pro-fessional image of teachers," he said.

He said the decision would be finalised by the Education Ministry's disciplinary committee, which is chaired by the secretary-general.

Alimuddin was responding to a report on the teacher being hit with a RM1,000 personal and a good behaviour bond for two years by the Bachok Syariah Court on Sunday.
