Singapore voted no. 1 in Education worldwide which helps propel us to be first world country.
Whilst I won't deny this is true, I'm just wondering what price we pay for achieving this.
Pressure on our children at a young age, streaming ie segregating the children by their results, book smart children etc. Interested to know what do you guys feel, worth it? Perhaps.......

I said it before. Education in Singapore is like factory or macdonalds churning out workers. There is good and bad. Good because you get a continuous stream of workers who has the ability to work. Bad is because you get hordes of workers with similar skill set all vying for limited number of jobs. That's why FT still have a place in Singapore because we can't think out of the box.

I fail to understand what some people are complaining about.

 

If you want your children to have an easier school life and less work load, there are many choices around Singapore which one can enrole into and cheaper too.

 

How about sending your kids to schools in Malaysia which is ranked 52nd on the PISA survey ?

Yes, there are locals schools which caters to children with different abilities and learning rate.

 

The point I am making is it is really stupid to see this advantage which our education system had invested so much onm as a problem.

 

These people seems to forget the simple fact human resouce is all Singapore has to remain viable.

Life is short.So for me happiness is most important.When i was given a place in NUS 20 yrs ago,only about 20% of cohort able to get into local university.Now is 40-50%.So it's a bad rat race.

If you are into Medicine,Dentistry,Law,Pharmacy then of course get that degree as early as possible.For some other fields there are other routes.

And in life many roads lead to success.All you have to do is excel in it.

A true education is not just about teaching students to give the right answers.

A true education is about teaching them to ask the right questions.

Sadly, in Singapore, asking any kind of deeply probing or meaningful question is frowned upon.

Indeed, there are many ways to happiness and having a degree or an MBA is no guarantee to that.

 

Many now knows that

 

Yet we see many continue to strive in their educaton and we shouldn't fault them for getting in the paper chase fry.

 

That aside, this PISA ranking is not about Degree or MBA.


But FT fake degree trumps Singaporean real degree liao...

 

FYI, India had withdrew from the OECD education survey since 2012.

 

I guess we know why now.

Agreed.
We need education to make us become entrepreneurs and not a "Yes" man ...
We need to ask more "Why" and "How" .... Then, we can have a nation of thinkers and entrepreneurs and this will create more businesses ...
