malaysiakini and POLITICS in Schools

We were always thought that schools were not the place for politics but this latest move by the Education Ministry seems to be against that principle.
According to malaysiakini Hisham bars Pakatan leaders from schools this action by the Education Minister is really uncalled for.
Unless the Pakatan leaders are guilty of unethical behaviour, this ban is unwarranted and unjustified.
After all, the schools are within the state that has an opposition government and such leaders need to officiate at school functions.
This is an absurd directive from the Education Ministry. Instead of sorting out their many problems of unqualified teachers, they are playing politics with schools.
