Will Students Pooh-Pooh Cleaning Toilets?

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has called for children to be taught to wash toilets. He said that this is to ensure comfort and cleanliness are maintained and to foster respect for all people, including those who clean toilets. So first, we speak to a retired principal and discuss whether such an initiative would help promote civic mindedness among students. Then, we hear from our listeners about their thoughts on this and whether they think cleaning toilets will make children better people.
