Education Minister Ong Ye Kung Told NUS To Take Tougher Stand, No More 2nd Chance For Students With Sexual Misconduct

Education Minister Ong Ye Kung has spoken up about the NUS controversy. He told the NUS President and Board Chairman to take a tough stand on issues that threaten students' safety. Its existing two strikes and you are gone method is too lenient when it comes to dealing with people who are charged with sexual misconduct. Other tertiary institutions will be reviewing their framework to put a stop to this unacceptable behaviour. Why does it have to take so much and so long for some justice to come to light?
