COMMENT | What exactly does the professors' council do?

COMMENT | The only recent contribution of a member of the National Professors’ Council (NPC) that some of us may recall is that of Teo Kok Seong

He remarked that “Chinese schools sow racism” and caused a socio-political meltdown and a slinging match with some DAP politicians.

So, what exactly is the role and function of the NPC?

The professors are supposed to represent the best minds in academia in Malaysia. Using rice as an analogy, would they dare to debate the effects of a monopoly on rice imports, or suggest drastic approaches and reform in local rice production and marketing?

Or will they place more importance on protecting their own rice bowls by keeping largely silent?
