Teachers, Education Support Staff get pay rise

Teachers and Education Support Staff will get pay rise with effect 1 Sep 12! I congratulate teachers and education support staff for their pay rises!

I noted since Education Minister Heng Swee Kiat came aboard to helm Ministry of Education, there have been many monetary incentives! I am not sure whether it is because he was Singapore’s central bank banker before as the former Managing Director of Monetary Authority of Singapore, that monetary-incentive rewards seem natural to him. Take for example, the monetary incentives to reward good behaviour among students which drew brickbats! This came from Mr Heng! And now teachers and education support staff will get pay rise too!

While teachers and education support staff will receive increments in their salaries, we hear of so many cases of teachers involving in bad conduct and sex-related cases. The latest comes from a PCF Kindergarten teacher who shamed her female student by asking her to stand stark in front of her classmates!
