The fact is few teachers quit due to pay, but due to the non-teaching load that they have, as well as skewed KPIs. If we can truly retain teachers who are interested in teaching (ties to our warped recruitment based on grades and not interest), perhaps the students would have a better chance of a proper education too.
i heard a friend who is a doctor, he send his 3 yr old daughter to eaton house (a childcare centre in district ten), one month, $5k. I find it shocking.
Sure or not ? One term is 6-7k + GST, not 5k per month. At 5k per month, I would expect all the children to be fed bird nest porridge at every meal.

Nothing shocking. Private education is expensive if not funded by govt policies.In our public schools, the education system is majority-funded by governement. Hence, the low price you pay - almost nothing from Nursery to Sec schools. And heavily subsized if your child go into Singapore Unis/poly.If you fly to the States to attend a uni there, tution fees will cost the parent around US$150,000 for the full 3 years.Of course, if you compare with some European education system, it's almost entirely state-funded. But, income-tax in some of these countries is nearly half of your pay.
Or can we just get the kids on tuition no need go school.Then when u think time is right just go take exam.Maybe no need till 16 to take o level.If well tuitioned then maybe 14 go take Liao haha
The irony of schooling is that the school expect the student to be learning most of the basic stuff from tuition centre , the school are not doing any coverange on basic fundamental . What if those kid cannot afford ?Best part PSB or Spring are going to fund millions of dollars to tution centre ( whats up with that )My son in a neighbour hood school already the school are just keep giving them home work but never mark or go thru the work given .So we have to take matters to our own hands , just forget on the extra class that school are providing rather spent time on doing those paper from other school and go thru and correct the method to attack the question .Some parent resolve to home study as the current system are impossible for the averange student, on top of the school are not so committed to teach and revision ( rather facilitating ) . It seems like they are running like cooperate company .I don't blame those people are migrating , if i have the money i will do the same .Look at the American or Aussie their is simple effective studying and the children turn up to be more confident and articulate than our locals kids . It is a joke we are paying them top dollars for they to lead the future children and turn up our future will be bunch of "yes" man.How can they cultivate the entrepreneur that the government are emphasising all the time .Very disappointed .
