Covid19: Survey Shows Singaporeans Not Impressed With 4G Leadership Handling of Covid19

An international study conducted by Toluna and Blackbox Research found that many Singaporeans confidence in our political leaders are wavering and they are not impressed by the way they have handled the Covid19 pandemic. Only 41% of Singaporeans rated their leaders highly, which means that 59% of those polled rated them less than favourably. The survey also found that about 34% of the respondents were surprised at how poorly prepared Singapore was. This means that 66% of those polled were not surprised by the incompetence of the government.

To Close, or Not Close, Is That the Only Choice for MOE?

Instead of being for or against closing schools, how about we let parents decide whether their children would stay home to receive their education online? This will allow families facing different circumstances to make their decisions accordingly. It may also facilitate the implementation of social distancing in schools as certain classrooms and teachers may be freed up so that conventional class size may be reduced with the potential bonus of enhancing the quality of education delivery.

Do We Really Need Education Minister To Address Withholding PSLE Original Result Slip In Parliament?

Do We Really Need Education Minister To Address Withholding PSLE Original Result Slip In Parliament?

However, the Minister Ong's statement that he felt this should be reviewed is simply him trying to get onside with the Singaporean public once again, to show that the government listens to the ground, especially as Singapore is nearing the election period. And just to buy himself and the MOE more time, he said that he will only address this in Parliament next year. Why not just address this now? Trying to earn more goodwill from the voting public next year?

Ong Ye Kung Blames Technology And Social Media For Eroded Trust For Govt

He then indicated that the most common reason why trust is eroding is because of the role of digital technology, and how bad news generally gets spread faster on social media, and how negative news are generally over exaggerated. He failed to mention that another reason is because bad and negative news gets widespread coverage now because governments cannot find a way to stop them from spreading like they do when social media was non-existent.

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?

WITH SHRINKING NUMBER OF STUDENTS, WHY DOES S'PORE NEED TO PAY 2 EDUCATION MINISTERS? MERGE THEM CAN?

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?

DR CHEE: PAP MINISTERS HAVE RUN OUT OF FRESH IDEAS, S'PORE IS IN DEEP TROUBLE

If you cobble together a bunch of establishment folks and usher them into an echo-chamber, you're not going to hear anything new. On the other hand, the three key reforms that we really need: revamping the education system, scrapping GLCs, and stopping the control of the media are not on the table.
