Default More Pay and Bonuses for Teachers

Ministry of Education has announced a new scheme of service that more strongly emphasizes the link between pay and performance.

With this new scheme, teachers will be rewarded with performance-based increments and bonuses. The existing salary scheme apparently does not incentivize good performance with its fixed annual increments.

While transiting to the new scheme, a performance bonus "top-up" of 1.25 months, 1 month and half month will be given to teachers with outstanding, very good and good performances respectively. The top-up will be given out in March 2008.

"Eligible" officers will also receive a one-off salary increment of up to 4%.

The new scheme offers "a salary range system with merit increments that are based on ... performance, potential and market wage movements."

The annual packages of good performing teachers are expected to go up by 12% to 18%. For example, an outstanding performer with 3 years of teaching experience will get $65,000 per year.

As for principals on the Superscale 'H' salary grade, a good performer will get $193,000, while an outstanding one will get $218,000 per year.

(With $218k/yr, you make more money than ~95% of resident taxpayers. Use this benchmarking tool to calculate.)

So, if you want to be an educator, aim to be an outstanding principal!

Because most private tutors did not report income tax.

I think cleaning toilet for $100k will be a reality soon... Sunday Times today was mentioning that no locals want to distribute newspapers...

I'd also like to highlight that in a recent report, the US folks are arming themselves with both the blue collar and the white collar skills JUST in case...

Anyways, in Australia, you can earn a pretty decent living just by washing dishes... because nobody wants to do it!

Do you seriously believe everything you read in the state media?

What I know is that all the old uncles and aunties we used to see in food courts and coffeeshops are now replaced by our foreign talent from Bangladesh and China.

Don't blame the towkays. If there's cheaper labour available, why wouldn't they hire them?

This is the price to pay for an open economy, so say our political leaders. My question to them is why can't they do something to encourage the towkays to hire our poor uncles and aunties who slogged their lives as Singaporeans rain or shine, only to now live as 2nd class citizens in their home country competing with low-wage foreign labour who costs a dime a dozen.

Maybe we should hire cheaper presidents and prime ministers from other countries (recently retired George W Bush comes to mind, at a fraction of the cost). Maybe they can do a better job taking care of Singaporeans.

Sure?,

You are right about being skeptical about the media (state or otherwise). One should really reflect after reading if the piece of news that is out there in the media wilderness is conveying a certain kind of truth. My take is: no news are absolutely objective. They are written, after all, by emotional beings.

Rant aside, yes, your point of views are also highly valid. However, I would stand by my idea of equipping myself with multiple skills (blue & white)... no matter what the media says...

Default Mid-career salary scale for teachers

Hello, I'm a former civil servant with about 2 years experience in the public sector. I'm graduating from NTU soon with a Masters soon. Does anyone know what my starting pay is likely to be if I were to enter teaching?

Appreciate it if anyone can give me some information. Thanks!
