Consistently getting B/A grades means that the officer is consistently performing up to the expectation of a higher subgrade.. but the Ministry is unashamed about underpaying such high performing officers. Too bad, teaching is a calling, you survive on passion and drive.

Not true across the board.. My ex pri school has a shortage of Math teachers. More than 5 classes are taught by relief/flexi teachers..

If MOE is smart, can deploy excess math and science teacher for secondary and JC levels to primary school.

They are already doing that. And it's true that they're smart that way since it forced even more people to resign.

More appropriate adjectives would be "calculative" or "stingy". Quality of education can be greatly improved by reducing class sizes, not closing schools, cutting recruitment or processing resignations quickly.

So what if they resign? The DG of Education already said the resignation level has remained consistent. Teachers are contented and know that they will not command that sort of pay outside.

Things are not as simple as we comprehend. There are a lot of dots needed to be connected to realize your above suggestions.

When you reduce class sizes, you need to consider the allocation of resource e.g. classrooms and facilities. Then you also have to consider beyond MOE, the inter-ministries' works e.g. urban planning and economic progression for the Nation. There are National imperatives to be weighed.

Blame on the declining birth rate. If you compare to the 80s and 90s, the educational landscapes back then were much simpler as we had sufficient kids to maintain the scale of operation. At least, MOE is not embarking on any retrenchment drives.

As an educator, we need to look at the situation objectively.

However, I acknowledge that MOE should look more intentionally into the mental-wellness of the teachers. Works can be all-around and daunting at times and the working pace appears to be moving faster with all the new approaches e.g. E-Pedagogy and regulations stacking up.

We need to continue streamlining the processes and if need be, revamp certain structures to support the teachers to move ahead.

Jiayou my fellow educators!

Currently considering independent schools. Is the workload there lighter than mainstream schools?

yes, usually one prep needed.
but quality should be there to match expectations of the students who might not be forgiving. anyways, most of them could have tuition too.

Default Will a C- grade put one at a disadvantage when applying for Open Posting?

Hi All,

If my performance grade for this year was a C-, would this disadvantage me when I go for interviews with other schools during APEX?

Like will other interviewees have better prospects of being selected ahead of me?
