The nation woke up to a shocking news yesterday when The Star reveal the result of a research conducted by Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) on 887 female students (Form 1 to Form 5) with disciplinary problems. The result shows the involvement of these students in sex, drugs, pornography, secret societies, vandalism and truancy.
Today, most readers gave their opinion that it is an old issue and the government have failed to address the problem.
If only we could have the result details and breakdown, maybe it will be clearer and we’ll be getting a better respond from the readers and Malaysian as a whole.
Shocking find in UKM study on female delinquents
KUALA LUMPUR: Except for one, all the 887 female students with disciplinary problems interviewed admitted to having had sex, according to a Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia study.Â
The study also showed that apart from sex, most of the respondents took drugs, were involved in pornography, secret societies, vandalism and truancy.Â
The study, conducted by UKM Children and Youth Psychology specialist Dr Khaidzir Ismail, found all the female students save one confessing to have had experienced the â€œpleasure of the fleshâ€.Â
The three-month High Risk Female Youth Profile Study, which ended last December, took 20 students with disciplinary problems from each school, ranging from Form One to Form Five, as its respondents.Â
â€œIt is sad and shocking to find all except one of the respondents admitted to having experienced sex. Â
â€œThis is painful finding but it is a reality that we have to accept,â€ he said. Â
It is understood that the study was a Selangor governmentâ€™s initiative to find a handle to the deteriorating moral values among the female youth in the state.Â
From the study, the state government aims to formulate a special training module to promote high moral values among girls. Â
Dr Khaidzir said the study also found that the female students, aged between 15 and 16, were at a high risk of being involved in various discipline problems, including those related to sex. Â
â€œThe study also found that the problems committed by these students were due to external pressure like coming from broken homes,â€ he said.Â
Khaidzir said most of the students were poor in their academic achievements, communication skills and had low self-esteem and self-control as well as problem solving capabilities. â€“ Bernama
