Dont understand.
So teachers want to draw high salary just to teach and not do other things?
Then continue teaching but dont expect high salary.
Or
Leave the service and find a job that fits your perfect needs.

Got give and take.
No perfect job with high salary and less work.
The only job perhaps is when you create a job of your own.

For the hours worked, the salary is not high. Furthermore, the teachers who end up with the most side projects are the younger ones with more 'energy' and 'drive'. But civil service system, you should know.. to reach higher salary points, you need to grind through many years because the increments are slow (but at least they are steady).

If you can tahan the early years, and rise to a decent salary point, then sure, it becomes more worth it. And when you are more senior, your plate may not be loaded up so heavily as well because you are not 'young with a lot of fire and energy, no kids, can get married to your job' anymore.

We are not talking about management level people. Management comes with their own set of KPIs.

For rank and file teachers, it is abnormal when your jobscope is mostly irrelevant to your job title.

A teacher's main job, as the job title suggests, is to teach. Everything else is secondary.

Just like how accountants focus on accounting, lawyers focus on their legal cases, doctors focus on treating their patients, teachers should focus on teaching students.

When teaching takes up only a third of a teacher's working hours, and the other two thirds are spent on event planning, enrichment, procurement and evaluation, parent and community engagement, conducting training for colleagues, and one's performance is evaluated by how many extra duties teachers take on rather than how well they teach, something is seriously wrong.

Imagine a doctor who is terrible at diagnosing and treating patients, but is given good performance appraisals for his work in planning department events, celebrations, organising seminars and his handling of budget. And promoting such people into policymaking positions despite a history of poor patient outcomes. Acceptable?

Looking at my school's self-reported data, it's more like 12% to 25% for GEO5 officers for student-facing and T&L-related work, including lessons, lesson prep, marking, exam setting, exam marking, remedials & supplementary lessons, CCAs, CCA planning and prep, and parent-teacher meetings. All these: only at most one quarter of the time spent on work.

Not true. C- still have performance bonus. Promotion wonít be held back. If you already have 4 consistent B, you would have been promoted once. Just try harder. Once you get 3Bs again, promotion might come your way depending on your CEP.

Default medical claims

Hi everyone, Iím confused over the medical claims system. Is outpatient claim deducted from the $500 annual medical claim?

The outpatient bill is still sent to Workpal and there is government co-pay and patient co-pay, however in my medical bill it stated $0 to pay. I didnít pay a single cent for the outpatient consultations at all.

anyone care to explain pls? Thank you!

You pay $0 until all the $500 is used up.

Beyond $500, you top up the difference from your salary.

If you didn't claim anything, the balance from $500 will be credited into your medisave.
