unless moe one day really decides to overpay the teachers to truly/sincerely attract the talents (taking reference how the member of parliaments or c-suite people are given certain pegged allowance in an organisation), then the meaningfulness/passion in teachers can also be comparable compensated. the intrinsic motivations behind teaching can be stretched and thinned out in this kind of capitalistic society.
then again, there are many young people who don't mind joining to get some little experience and then quit. so the MOE has no lack of people to fill headcount - teaching positions are really dispensable. heart-wise the organisation has a long way to work on.
But the focus isn't money. I will happily draw pre-Oct 2022, or even pre-2015 salary if I didn't have to ensure that the tentage vendor delivers up to spec, or entertain some grassroots leader that I don't really care about on a Saturday morning. We will give our everything in our direct work with students (and parents, to an extent). What we resent is padding the KPIs of middle and senior management with things that have nothing to do with the heart for our students.

So enough with all this nonsense about teachers being hungry for money, having no intrinsic motivation, and whatnot. Think about what our job has become.. what it has evolved into over the years.

Thanks for sharing the concerns. It is very eye-opening to understand how teaching jobs have evolved over the years from one that is centred mostly on teaching and delivering the syllabus, to one that involves anything and everything such as mental health, CCA, sex ed, admin, school events, logistics, etc. perhaps institutionalise a team of non-teaching staffs in each school whose role is to coordinate and manage these non-teaching activities (of course they may rope in teachers flto provide support and assistance and brainstorming). This will offload teachers workload substantially??
