The Quality of a teacher is affected by many variables which will all in turn influence a student’s study behaviour. A teacher certified by MOE can definitely have knowledge in their field of study, but not all teachers know how to convey their information on the subject back to the students effectively. Therefore, students might not pay attention to them especially if the teachers are boring for them, missing out on the lesson and the content.
Secondly, teachers are allocated to students randomly and students may end up with a teacher who lacks experience in teaching or even first time teachers.
Teachers often have to juggle between admin work and teaching, which impairs them from teaching effectively as they might be too encumbered by their admin work.
