When the committee was reviewing the school manual and the proper conduct of students towards their teachers, Ms. Al Mualla enquired how teachers could teach their students about self-confidence and self-esteem when the schoolmasters and mistresses themselves did not abide by the motto and deliberately rebuked the teachers before their students.

She pointed out that many top officials in the educational departments rebuked employees before their subordinates. Ms. Al Mualla was praised for her honesty.
