Teachers against Colonialism
In Post-War Singapore and Malaya
New. Thanks to Kua Busan, a teacher himself, we will not be able to forget the contribution of teachers to Singapore and Malaysia's efforts to shake off colonialism. Although we might take for granted the existence of active teachers' unions today, at the end of the Japanese occupation the teachers' associations were mainly concerned with their members' social and recreational activities. This 147 page book shows how that situation was radicalised first with the formation of the Singapore Teachers' Union in 1946 followed by the birth of the Malayan Teachers' Union just over a year later and their consequent struggles against the colonial authorities.
