 meaning if the top student of the school got 220, he will be granted (guaranteed) a place in RI, HC or VI?

 

sounds interesting and challenging to the teacher but not doable.

asking the elites not to practise elitism is like seeing a naked gal in the mirror when your manhood start calling. come naturally lah!

how about more on the funding part. neighbourhood school to get more than elite school! workable as well. Alumni from neighbourhood school like me..ah seng and ah beng. how much can we contribute annually. eat also not enough to eat.

it's a secondary school of their choice. No pressure on them, just allow them to join a "top school".


I think it's quite an interesting idea. Local meritocracy rather than national meritocracy.

 

In all things measured, national meritocracy is the fairer system. But national meritocracy entrenches social classes except to the exceptional few.

It's a good idea. Basically the idea is grounded in the fact that ATTITUDE is what really drives success no matter where a person starts from.

 

The best students in a neighbourhood primary school, if they choose to go on to an "elite" brand-name school, will probably have a hard time keeping up with better-equipped peers, faster pace of learning and fiercer competition.

 

But having reached the top in their neighbourhood environment, where negative influences abound (let's admit that ...), shows they already have what it takes to succeed, the attitude, drive and motivation.

 

I think these students can eventually make it as well, and driven to better performances in "elite" school environment.

 

A good example would be those top tier ITE students. Their school is not academically-inclined and ridden with disciplinary problems, but these best students often go on to top their tertiary education in poly and univ as well. The positive attitude, self-discipline and motivation is already there.

it really depends on what level u define top tier of students in such a primary school.

if only the top 2-3 students, then maybe these students already have no problems going into the top sec schools as they are already doing.

 

I was from a neighbourhood school. My class the top 8-10 all got into chinese high, nanyang, RGS, ACS etc.

Like that arrr, sure got parents want to game the system. The rich parent may  purposely sent their children  to a historical low performance primary school in PSLE, while sending their children to high SES tuition like The Learning Lab, or private tutor and make sure they get the extra tuition  needed to be top of the school . Since this school has a historical low performance in PSLE, chances are majority of the parents can't afford extra tuition for the students, thus lesser competition for the rich kid.

 

The rich kid no need to score 260+, just need to score maybe 240 and can be among  top 10% of the school liao and go to RI.

Actually I don't think it will make much of a difference. Cuz most top students in the Primary school can get into the top schools anyway. Only a few schools standard so bad that their top 10 can't get into RI, chinese high and RGS kind of school.

 

I came from a neighborhood school that is so bad that no one wants to apply. Phase 2C also no balloting and many slots available. Only filled up after phase 3 and all those who failed to get a school. The top 10 students in my cohort all also eligible for SAP school and all 10 of us got into the schools we wanted. 

 

What will happen is you will end up with some students will lower than average PSLE results in each of these top schools. Then they either get motivated and end up doing well or demoralised and do even worse.

Some parents are very proud that their children ownself ask for assessment paper and tuition. Exam skills is one of the many things to be learnt but now it's the only measure of success and intelligence.
