  7. 7. <ul><li>Parents have started to complain </li></ul>FUNDING OF TECHNICAL SCHOOLS “ I feel a little disappointed that the polytechnics announced this only after the posting results are out. For students who are PRs and international students, this announcement may make a difference to their study options,” Ling Ko Pi, Worried Parent whose son is in Chaota Poly “ I think it's unfair for them to suddenly raise prices just like that. My parents are helping to pay for my education but with this hike, I may have to work part-time to lessen the financial burden.” Nicole Sai Worried parent whose son is in Swiss Cheese Poly
  8. 8. <ul><li>Students comments </li></ul>FUNDING OF TECHNICAL SCHOOLS “ Fork this sheet la! My father is a ‘garang guni’ and have to work so hard just to pay off my previous poly fees. Now, my present school fee is $50 higher!” Cao Ma Ge Angry student from Chicken Poly “ Tak Buloh Tahan! Saya father and mother work have high pay each month. Now, ITE is going to raise its fees! Makan tahi lah!” Ahmad Affected student from ITE

  10. 10. FUNDING OF TECHNICAL SCHOOL Taken from Yearbook of Statistics Singapore, 2011 <ul><li>With the number of O level students going to Polytechnic increasing rapidly, we expect to see even more people seeking help from us for the high Poly school fee </li></ul>2000 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 JC 24,804 28,901 30,726 31,627 32,579 32,110 32,420 Polytechnics 58,372 64,422 67,667 72,379 76,756 80,635 83,542 ITE 15,974 20,855 22,954 23,465 24,367 24,846 24,789
  11. 11. <ul><li>Polytechnics </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The parents of these students are concerned to know that the fees are increasing at shocking rates. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Research shows that parents with a higher education qualification produce smarter children. Parents who are more educated tend to have a higher income </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Therefore, those coming to polytechnics are the ones who usuallyhave a poorer financial background as they could afford it (until recently). </li></ul></ul></ul>FUNDING OF TECHNICAL SCHOOL
  12. 12. <ul><ul><li>Hence, we feel that it is necessary to financially help these students cope with their rising school fees (Polytechnic). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Also, the funds provided will enhance their learning experiences (ITE) </li></ul></ul>RESULTS
  13. 13. <ul><li>Currently, there is only 20 specialised schools in Singapore </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This specialised school includes all types of disabilities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Eg. Autism, Mute, Deaf, Handicapped etc. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Some of them are quite old and require revamping </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The population of disabled people in Singapore is 100,000 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Even though the population is low, the parents and care taker have to try their best to take care for them </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This project will be worked with MCYS </li></ul>FUNDING OF DISABLED STUDENTS
  14. 14. <ul><li>Schools for disabled students who have Autism or are Mutes, etc. will get grants from the MOE At-Large to help provide better facilities to them </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is to ensure that underprivileged people will get more help so that they can still make an impact on society. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Grants given can be used for enhance training for the care-taker at the school </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is such that care-takers can help take care effectfully and the parents can work at ease. </li></ul></ul>FUNDING OF DISABLED STUDENTS
  15. 15. <ul><li>We will build more specialised schools in Singapore </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We will build it at Clementi due to its strategic location of being near to Jurong and City </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This is such that Parents, working from the City or Jurong can pick their children up from work </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The town is currently going under many redevelopment </li></ul></ul>FUNDING OF DISABLED STUDENTS New specialised school
  16. 16. <ul><li>Therefore, the specialised schools in Singapore will be able to provide better facilities for the disabled </li></ul><ul><li>The disabled will be taken care of well by a trained care-taker </li></ul><ul><li>More specialised schools will be available for this group of people </li></ul>FUNDING OF DISABLED STUDENTS
  17. 17. <ul><li>The current situation of education will be well-improved with needy and disabled students gaining from the essentives we have implemented </li></ul><ul><li>Parents will be at ease regarding their child’s education </li></ul>RESULTS
  18. 18. <ul><li>This is how we are going to distribute our budget to different aspects: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>50 million: grants to ITE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>150 million: grants to polytechnics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>300 million: grants to schools for handicapped people </li></ul></ul>BREAKDOWN
