Education is suppose to equip an individual with the skills necessary to lead a meaningful & independent life. Instead around the world, it is clear the system has failed the vast majority.
A parent was quoted in the news as saying:
"I have yet to observe any beneficial effects of pushing children so hard in primary school, apart from high stress levels & sapping of intellectual curiosity."
Breaking the person down in terms of high stress & draining out intellectual curiosity seems to be a devious plan by the hybrid regime to produce 'zombie' cog workers.
Another interviewed said:
"I think nowadays kids are smarter so they shouldn't have a problem doing these questions, Having higher educational standards would also be important for S'pore's future"
S'pore educational standards has been among the highest in the world yet what kind of renown private companies has S'poreans created? What S'pore's high standards have churned out instead are compliant & obedient cog workers easily replaced (whom many are) by cheaper foreigners with unknown qualifications.
In this internet age with wikipedia & google we don't have a need for rote learning & memorising. What is in short supply is creativity which can't be easily outsourced of automated(at least not yet).
