Different school environment

A Singapore citizen was able to send his children to an international school, after getting permission from the ministry.

He visited his children in the school and found the children very lively, playing like children during recess time. It was like the environment when he was in school 40 years ago.

His children grew up to be confident and able to communicate well. The school did not have too much materials to study. The teachers were able to really spend time to teach the children. His children did not need private tuition.

He noticed that his children develop better in the international school, compared to the the local schools, where they went to earlier.

He said that the school environment make a lot of difference in the development of the children. The Singapore system of education produced people who are very good at following instructions but do not have the confidence to think and act on their own.
