The teacher who was criticised for caning his student will undergo counselling by the Johor education department.

State cabinet member in charge of education, Aminolhuda Hassan, said the Bahasa Malaysia teacher was reputable and well-liked among students.

”Perhaps he was upset over the insult. The student (who was caned) said something inappropriate,” said Aminolhuda, who met the teacher, student and her mother today.
