Since they already have the teachers and are not intending to forcibly downsize (read: retrench), then why not deploy them meaningfully?

Or is it because we afraid that in the future, we might become too accustomed to the improved teacher wellbeing and student outcomes that it becomes too difficult to turn back..?
I agree with you that MOE can work harder towards deploying the teachers meaningfully. However, how to quantify meaningfully Meaningfully is subjective to individual. Create more positions? Reduce class sizes? Provide incentives to transit to Stat boards/Ministries? Good ideas but what are the methodologies behind? How are the demand and supply of other Stat Boards/Ministries? How can we intentionally reach an equilibrium of the workforce figures across the Civil Service?

Yes. I agree all of us should work towards a better future but let us think deeper to come up with a sound proposal of reducing class size.
