anyway, somehow the debates in the previous posts are missing the main point.

there are groups of people who hit their ceilings earlier and there are some who take longer. but the main point is the people on top don't take such things into consideration for promotions.

this is also the reason why the resignation rate is actually higher for the younger officers while the older ones (who have nowhere to go) stay since they don't have much choice.
MOE already lose to other ministries, don't need to say other industries. Lol. The progression is a joke. Yes, teaching is a calling and students are at the heart of everything we do. But to have some form of career aspirations is also human. No matter how much you serve with your heart, hentak kaki (whether in terms of salary, or appointment, or both) is sooner or later demoralising.
