The Ministry of Education had taken an important step of not naming the top students in the recent O level examinations.
I agree with this move. But will they take the next step to stop giving overseas scholarships to the top students? The money spend on these scholarships could be used to provide better financial support for needy students.
I prefer that the schools prepare a large number of students to be educated in a broader sense, rather than focus mainly on academic results. The future leaders can come out to the working world and develop their skills and knowledge in the real world environment. Let the true talents come out in this way.
We have many examples of the most talented people who did not have a university degree but have became successful entrepreneurs.
