MINISTER NG CHEE MENG: SCHOOL MERGER IS PAINFUL BUT NECESSARY, LET'S GO THROUGH THIS TOGETHER

Finally, Minister for Education (Schools) Ng Chee Meng spoke up about school mergers. He posted on Facebook that it is a "painful but necessary decision" which he himself "agonised" over.

He still believes this is the best decision even after considering other possibilities. He explained that some JCs will not even be able to fill half of its intake if they were left by themselves, and this will negatively affect students' educational experiences.

"My educators and I think this cannot be good for our students. We do not take school mergers lightly. We only proceeded with these mergers as we are sure it is for the better for our students to come."

He knows some people will feel a sense of loss but assured that their heritage will be kept alive although he did not say how it can be done. It is not an easy transition but he hopes everyone can go through this difficult journey together.

Get ready ok, must go through ups and downs together.

I read with intrigue when MOE announced that they would be merging 8 junior colleges due to the low student takeup, declining number of students due to falling birth rates. If the problem is the lesser number of students, why then do a small country like Singapore need 2 Education Ministers who are paid more than a million dollars each every year?

PAPER GENERAL NG CHEE MENG TELL STUDENTS TO CHIONG BUT OWNSELF NV WORK IN PRIVATE SECTOR BEFORE

PAP elites have always been hypocrites, preferring ordinary citizens to walk their talk while ministers only do the talking. The most recent instance of such hypocrisy – Education Minister Ng Chee Meng urging students ‘to dare to chiong’. However, the former paper general is a product of a kiasu plus kiasi education system and has earned millions in tax dollars since 1987. Ng has been playing it very safe and has not worked a single day in his life in the private sector: he clearly does not know the meaning of ‘chiong’.
