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?

NOMINATION & NEW APPOINTMENTS CLEAR SIGN OF PAP'S SUCCESSION PLANNING?

Our reader notes that Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, who has been nominated at Singapore's 10th Speaker, will thus be out of the running to be our next PM. This leaves us with Heng Swee Keat, Lawrence Wong, Ng Chee Meng, Chan Chun Sing and Ong Ye Kung. He thinks this is all very well-planned and calculated.

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.

KNOW UR HISTORY: S'PORE WAS A MULTI-PARTY DEMOCRACY IN 1965

Regrettable and shocking ignorance of Singapore's history. We WERE a multi-party democracy in 1965. In 1963 General Election, the PAP won 37 seats and 46.9% of the vote; the Barisan Sosialis won 13 seats and 33.2% of the vote; and the United People's Party won 1 seat and 8.4% of the vote. Between 1966-67, arrests, detentions, and resignations steadily reduced the opposition presence in Parliament, leading to the first PAP sweep of Parliament in the 1968 elections

MILLIONAIRE MINISTER ONG YE KUNG TALKS COCK ABT JOB CREATION FOR S'POREANS

Khaw used to be top on the talking cock list but younger aspirants like Minister Ong Ye Kung seems to have mastered the art in double quick time. In a recent talking cock session to an audience of mostly students from SUTD, Ong uses an analogy of the “world as an airport” and says our economy has to be more than a “control tower”: it has to become a “runway” where ideas are conceived, business plans are developed, and products and services eventually launched.
