Topic Review (Newest First)

Unregistered One point I thought I'd note - this might have been accurate in the past (when were you in NTU?), recruitment is very competitive now and category #2 is practically non-existent today, IMHO.

Most of the new teachers I see today do at least partially fall into category #1 (many have other practical concerns as well, but I don't see any issue with that), or are at least willing to work hard with young students, so I don't think the situation today is quite as bleak as you make it out to be.

(That said, many do get jaded along the way, as someone had pointed out earlierÖ)

Letís be honest, very few Teachers joined because they have a passion for teaching. When i was in NTU and i met with people in NIE, here are the few types:

1) (5%) - People with real passion for teaching
2) (50%) - People who flopped in JC, and donít have the money to go to private Uni to get a sub-par degree or to go overseas to study. LL join NIE
3) (25%) - People with **** degrees (i.e. Lit, Comms, or some crap arts degree) who donít know what to do and suddenly declare that teaching is their passion. Youíve known them for 2-3 years and they never mentioned teaching. So you know it is a last ditch effort.
4) (20%) - People with good degrees (i.e. Engineering, Business etc), but donít want to join that field, no good companies will hire them at good pay or they tried those careers and it didnít work out. Basically looking for a steady paycheck.

This is exactly my point. It's parents job to raise their own kid. Their own parents fark care their useless kid. Want teacher to raise their kids for them meh

Teacher only teach the kids academic stuff cause you parents lack the intellect to do it. Parent to kids rations 2 to 1. You want teachee to raise your kid ratio 1 to 30.


Math fail la parents. I can teach your kids with a few stroke of the cane.

Yea la, if teachers not doing their job, then nothing to say.

But sometimes parents cannot even control their own children and expect the teachers in school to do their basic parenting job for them. Then go online and kpkb about the fact that teachers are not being good surrogate parents.

Please, no one asked you to have children if you do not want to go through the hassle of taking care of them and being part of their education. Teacher is there to educate your children during school hours but that does not mean parents just hands off and don't play a part in guiding and educating the children after school hours. Don't think that parenting stops at giving birth and expect to do nothing after that. The fact is that teachers are not with your children 24/7.

But once upon a time, they were not like that. It is saddening.
Of course you should have to clear other Ďnon-teachingí related tasks. So does everyone else? You think only Teachers have to do it?

People in other fields do it. Most professional jobs require you to log claims, book your own travel and do other side projects for your boss outside your primary role. Yet Teachers expect to get huge compensation in return?
