Yet another forum troll who doesn’t sound like a teacher, trying to stir up drama. Let’s all continue to ignore the provocations.

To respond to OP: no, it’s not common practice to have activation relay on weekends. Probably just your school leaders or KPs. Expectation for ranking is whether officers meet their KRAs and not whether you check Whatsapp on your weekend (but of course if there is a genuine emergency, officer should respond nevertheless). If you find your management direction is not a good fit with your competencies or disposition, consider applying out upcoming OPE exercise.

much unlike drs and lawyers.. once upon a time they were the cream of the crop, then marry their fellow drs and lawyers, produce outstanding offspring who then study med or law and the cycle also continue this way

such is life really
without these "rejects", you wont have someone to teach others to become doctors, dentists, engineers, accountants, etc.

Good policy making cannot be achieved without a good understanding of the realities on the ground, on knowing what is actually achievable

A policy that looks good in theory, but cannot be implemented, is a failure

And there have been too many of such bad policies, where the consequences are very serious, but the policymakers who made them are not held legally accountable

Just to name a few of the more prominent ones

1. Pre-covid, every school carried out annual exercises to ask students if they have computers at home, and have an elearning day. But when covid struck, it exposed the reality that computers at home might be shared by many family members, and exposed that the backend servers cannot support so many users being online at the same time. On paper, this contingency policy looks good, but was actually not implementable in reality.

2. Policy on vaping and smoking related offence. MOE and HPB for years, treated the issue lightly and insisted on using the 'soft approach'. Sending students who were caught vaping for counselling, and not charging anyone in court until the students have clocked a few records. The supplier of these vapes (the sellers, and the people who helped students procure vapes) were not punished. Now the vape situation is out of control. Even primary school kids are vaping like nobody's business.

3. PLD policy. Intention is good, to let children acquire IT skills. But a lot of children lack self discipline. Some even went to bypass the device management settings to allow playing of games. The cases of cyber addiction is becoming more severe, and with many parents working, and who are also unable to enforce discipline at home, a lot of parents have written in to the papers to complain on this issue.

There are a slew of other bad policies. Probably drawn up by people who lack actual school experience.

Do MOE teachers get at least half of the holidays that students get? That means about 2 weeks in June, 1 month in nov+dec, and 1 week for March+Sep hols, that adds up to about close to 40-50 days of leave every year..

For the last point, the problem isn't the education system. The problem is poor parenting. Whose fault is it that they cannot enforce rules at home?

There are anti-teacher trolls in this forum and all they do is to bash teachers.

Their remarks are best ignored.

Do not throw pearls to pigs.

Naive thinking. Without PLDs, kids won't be susceptible to cyber addiction? Come on, it's not the 1990s anymore. Kids have smartphones too, kids can go outside to do whatever you don't want them to do. Kids going astray after school hours is not the school's fault, it's a parent problem.
