Come August, teachers will have to pay for their parking just like every other civil servant.

An MOE spokesperson explained that the rationale behind charging parking fees across all schools is that, “all public officers need to pay market rate parking charges to ensure that all salaries are accounted for with no hidden benefits”.

Needless to say, just about everyone online is against the idea of teachers paying for parking.

Even new Secretary General of the Workers’ Party, Pritam Singh, expressed his stand against it.
