NTU PROF SUFFERS MENTAL BREAKDOWN, TURNS TO SHOPLIFTING

A professor at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) pleaded guilty to shoplifting yesterday after he was caught stealing repeatedly from service stations he frequents. The professor, 55 year old Er Meng Joo, shoplifted items worth $453.35 between Jan 9 and 29, last year. He is a professor in electrical and electronic engineering, and had won multiple awards at the university.

The professor stole items such as air fresheners and toiletries from two NTUC FairPrice outlets at Esso service stations at Bukit Timah and Dunearn roads. Just what drove a top award winning professor, who probably earns more than enough to actually pay for his stolen items, to go around and shoplift? Too stressed until he suffers from a mental breakdown?

HR OF CIVIL SERVICE ONLY WANTS NUS AND NTU GRADS?

I am writing to voice my displeasure over some civil service HR department to what I feel is a very discriminatory practice. This is about the hiring of fresh graduates. I notice that the HR of civil service are only really open to graduates that comes from the NUS and NTU.

I know that NUS and NTU are the crown jewel of the Singapore education system. But, for those students who did not make it to the top two local universities, we still try hard to earn that degree through sheer hard work. It does not mean that if our degree comes from a private university, or a foreign university, or even the other local universities , we are less capable. Maybe it took us a longer and different route to reach the degree path, but we study just as hard.

LOCAL UNIVERSITIES TO ALLOW ARTS AND SPORTS TALENT JOIN THEIR ELITE RANKS

Good to know that even though Singapore places its values on grades, there are still avenues to get a place in our local universities if you are talented enough in your chosen field, such as the arts and sports. This will only encourage students that being creative and good in their other fields are also ways to get to that dream degree of theirs. After all, why should grades be the end all and be all for everything?

POOR STUDENTS HAVE MUCH SLIMMER CHANCE OF UNI EDUCATION THAN WELL-TO-DO STUDENTS

The system in this country (be it education or social) is set up in such a manner that children from the rich parents will gets the best education presently more than 80% of students in the SAP schools comes from rich family background) and more than 60% of undergraduates in the local universities (NUS & NTU) coming from higher middle class to the elite class. Students from poor family will have slim chance to be in the university (it's not due to the affordability issue but due to poor grade which were imposed to them by virtue of the handicap they're facing.
