Heard Malaysia will take Peace Corps Volunteers from this year. A few PCVs of mine who were posted to Trengganu, Johore and Negeri 9 many years ago said that they were not welcomed and were ignored by the Principals of the school they were sent to. They were not assigned subject to teach for some time and they had no choice but leave the schools and reported back to their boss. In the end they were sent to Sabah, where they were welcomed and assigned to teach Maths, Science and English. Hope the Education Minister, who happens to be the DPM will monitor all the schools where the Volunteers are posted. This people are VOLUNTEERS and their salaries are paid for by the US and we should appreciate their FREE services, and not to be hated just because they are Americans.
