The low standard of Singapore schools

So a big brouhaha recently made news in the social mediascape about a Swiss teacher doing a teaching internship in Singapore and commenting affterwards that the standard of teaching was appalling.

I can’t help but agree and have talked about it in the past.

But Singapore still continues rank well for maths and science proficiencies.

But doesn’t that sound contradictory? No. A wise man (MrWangSaysSo) once wrote that, “Singapore produces so many excellent students because of its world-class tuition classes.” And I think that just about sums everything up. COMMENT.
