Ministry of Education teachers from that particular walk of life, who are overburdened and worn out by the work load and extra curricular activities, are taking brief moments from their daily 7am to 7pm lives to think about how good it is to be a private tutor.

This after many MOE teachers resorted to thinking about the joys of being a private tuition teacher as it helps them to persevere for a few more years before throwing in the towel to go into tuition full-time.

One teacher, Miss Tan, said: “Every time I feel like breaking my bond and quitting, I think to myself, ‘Just a few more years to go and I can be a private tutor who can focus on teaching and get away from being an overworked MOE teacher’.”

“And I will feel better immediately and soldier on.”

“It’s like everything I am suffering now will be worthwhile once I can be a tutor and just focus on teaching.”

Other teachers said being an MOE teacher is aspirational as it allows them to move on to other better things in life later.

Another teacher, Mr Ng, said: “We know that as MOE teachers our job is never done. Figuratively speaking, it’s because students always need our help.”

“But like, literally, one minute it is attending to CCAs, next is doing admin work unrelated to teaching and next is doing planning.”

“We are always having to work.”

“So, we’re just working hard as teachers now so we can become good private tutors next.”

“Thinking about it gives me enough fuel to last through 7pm tonight.”

MOE to start charging teachers & students for using school toilets

MOE to start charging teachers & students for using school toilets

This after discovering that toilet usage has been free and unregulated for decades.

The Ministry of Education is looking into charging teachers and students for using school toilets during schooling hours.

This after it was discovered that toilet usage in schools have been free for all for the last few decades.

This resulted in the unregulated access to sanitary facilities to discharge one’s waste, which is a strain on the state’s resources.

The authorities have also noted that cost-free access has also resulted in a lot of money forgone by not collecting fees or payment of any sort, and this is tantamount to giving hidden subsidies.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who take ideas to their natural conclusion, are supportive of the idea of not making toilet usage free for teachers and students anymore, which is in line with MOE’s recent plan of possibly charging teachers to park their cars in school compounds.

One Singaporean, Sha Niao, said: “If teachers and students are not going to pay for toilet use, it will be a subsidy borne by taxpayers.”

“Soon, this habit of expecting subsidies will develop into a crutch mentality, and then evolve into outright demands for bribes as one thing leads to another.”

“To keep Singapore corruption-free, we need to take the same approach as making everyone pay for parking in school compounds.”

“All teachers and students must pay to use the toilet during school hours as there are no free lunches in this world.”

Other Singaporeans said making teachers and students pay for toilet use is just a start.

Regulars who sign on with the Singapore Armed Forces and Singaporean males reporting for National Service and reservist duties must next need to pay to use the toilets in their respective camps.

Da Bian, another local, said: “The government must look into withholding this privilege for those in camps.”

“Just imagine the amounts of money Singapore has forgone by making toilet access free in camps.”

“By getting those in camp to pay, this will be a win-win situation as Singapore will have a military force, while at the same time, boosting its annual reserves with toilet usage fees.”

This will help teachers better decide if weaker students are worth staying back for.

Singaporeans from all walks of life are clapping their hands and nodding their heads in absolute agreement.

This after it was revealed that the Ministry of Education has been mulling since 2015 if teachers should pay for parking their vehicles in schools, as a lot of money has been forgone due to teachers enjoying free parking all along.

One Singaporean, Jin Gian Lui, said she supports MOE charging teachers for parking according to the duration they park their cars: “I support the idea that the cost of parking is levied off teachers, and later transferred to the students.”

“This is economically-sound as it allows weaker students to better buck up faster, or else, it is really going to cost their teachers financially at 50 cents every half-an-hour extra.”

Other Singaporeans agreed this market-based approach is in line with Singapore’s demand-and-supply outlook on life.

Another local, Jiang Dao Li, said: “By charging for parking, it allows teachers to not only focus on syllabus-oriented learning, but transfer vital life skills to their students, whereby they learn early about issues such as opportunity costs and risks transference.”

“Teachers can then also better decide for themselves if certain segments of the student population are worth staying back for in school, or is the teacher going to get out of the school compound 30 minutes early and saving 50 cents in the process.”

“This will greatly aid numeracy in students once paid parking in schools is implemented.”
