Comments posted on his Facebook and Twitter pages included statements like “I wish I could slap all these Primary One kids’ mouths” and “some kids are so slow that you wonder why their parents weren’t fine (sic) for reproducing them”.
These comments have cost relief teacher Farouk Mya Aye his job. Mr Farouk, 23, was dropped by Jiemin Primary School where he taught this year, after the screenshots, which were also sent to The New Paper, appeared on citizen journalism website Stomp on Wednesday.
The Ministry of Education said in an e-mail reply that Mr Farouk has been struck off the register of relief teachers.
But Mr Farouk, a third-year National University of Singapore student, claims the screenshots had been doctored by acquaintances who were jealous of him.
