PUTRAJAYA - There have been instances of teachers asking students for sex in exchange for good examination scores.
Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull, who revealed this, warned that such cases are dangerous for the country's future generation.
He said there have also been instances where students tried to "bribe" their schoolmates to win votes so they can be elected as class monitor or school prefect.
"If these sort of corrupt acts have already occurred in schools, it will be worse when the students become adults and future leaders.
"That's why we need to educate our children on corruption as young as possible," Mohd Shukri said at a panel discussion organised by the MACC and the Education Ministry here.
Mohd Shukri did not provide details on the sex-for-grade cases, which the MACC has unearthed.
He said corruption should be made a subject in schools to educate children about the dangers of graft.
