But how many teachers can a school afford to let go on long leave? Long enough leave to really learn something new and learn how to bring it back to enrich their students' learning with it? One or two teachers on long leave in a department is already enough to bring the timetable to its knees. We have too little buffer capacity.
Should count your blessings already if they simply maintain headcount.

Instead of increasing, or maintaining, MOE has been cutting teachers headcount for the past 6 years.
