    Secondary school is stressful and boring. The only things that make us smile and laugh is when school ends earlier, no school, and class jokers who entertain the class.

    If India want really modern they have change education system . in India there is only forces on rata means that learn from book only if u learn u pass exam other wise fail. Fail because of without understand giving answer teachers only teach that the government have given syllabus they just forces on complete the syllabus not forces that student have understand or not they say we are work for u but they not .

    As our world has become more educated and clearly sophisticated in technology; do not forget that there is a need for people to become well-rounded in the process. In the U.S., I fear that so much of this falls on deaf ears; citizens who are not prepared to take on the jobs that are afforded by this rigorous education. Everyone should have this opportunity; but what happens to the children who still want to build, to manage as well as work in necessary jobs that support those who chose to do the esoteric and scholarly work needed in a global society?

    As for people repeatedly complaining about Singapore putting too much stress on kids, WAKE UP please. If they can't cope with stress now, what will they do in the real world? The education system may be grueling, but it teaches students to work hard and cope with stress effectively. (FYI, some schools conduct lessons on managing stress.)
    Personally, I LOVE studying. Call me a nerd, but once you cover and learn all the topics, the satisfaction is UNBELIEVABLE.

    lmao why are people actl being angry about a video in 2012 ( prolly the fact that the video has many wrong info )and personally i dont think it's that bad anyways. i mean we do get tested like idk every week? but tests are fun are they not,it gauges ur own capabilities and makes u strive for the better. Doe many goes crazy ( like actl mental) but is kinda because they cant really take the pressure i mean just relax the only opponent is urself. oh and talking about motivation in learning , yea fml people here are only motivated to win others, which is not bad but it makes every day feels tiring. Personally i feel that my peers have no real passion in what i call real learning. like lets say learning things thats outside of ones educational scope. its srsly so annoying that people are actl fucking stupid like they have no real skills. idk isit just singapore or its the same around the world in terms of the percentage of people like actl not knowing much. (i cant really blame a country for the lack of motivation and thirst for knowledge of it's people) Also about us memorizing shits is true to a certain degree. i say that cux it actl depends on individuals; with people being interested in any topic they would not see it as memorizing, rather it becomes sth that we would just know. Just like how a person would remember the events that happened in his fave harry potter book. Anyways i would still say singapore is having an education thats unique in making a person better of him or herself however cut-throat it is. If anything its a place that lacks curiosity ( not that i know of any other places thats not lacking it but this is severe. However, given that the comfortability many developed countries are having its not an easy task ) are people just not even curious anymore?

    In the USA, many school systems hire younger teachers, "the Millennials aka Generation Y" from programs like America’s Choice, or Teach for America, or some other groups and develop a reciprocal partnership to get a financial, federal kick-back in funds. Why keep an experienced senior teacher making more money when they can hire an inexperienced young teacher and pay that person much less? Unfortunately, money is more important to them than cultivated education. So aside from 14th amendment violations practiced by some preferential principals, money is another motive for firing tenured senior teachers. If these senior teachers do not retire, or resign then, they are issued unsatisfactory evaluations, or their working environment is made uncomfortable. . . In other countries, experienced, senior teachers are greatly valued and respected for their knowledge. Perhaps that is the reason that “U.S. students’ academic achievement still lags that of their peers in many other countries.” www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/02/15/u-s-students-internationally-math-science/

    Education path in Singapore is way too broad and takes a long time just to get a pathetic undergrad degree.
    I've worked with many people who have college degrees and those who don't even have their diploma. Many of which don't even know what they are doing. Though, needless to say those without degrees are usually the ones who are more passionate about their work.

    Biggest problem with the education system is that it is way too efficient. Students are seen as nothing more than commodities and future resources, which is why they are drilled academically to no end day and night. Everyone knows that the government's appeal to encourage the art stream is bullshit. Sciences are always perceived to be more superior because it is what will drive the economy. Arts is the government's last concern, regardless of how much they deny it. The hard truth is that schools and the government care little for students' emotional and mental wellbeing, and suicide rates are not even openly discussed because the government wants to sweep the emotional repercussions of the merciless education system under the carpet.

    It is not problem in schools or teachers ... on the West... problem is in kids, in the parents and in the sistem overall. If the kid want to learn they will learn without all this fancy stuff but if you have kids who are more interested about how they look or about boy/girls relationships then science... than no fancy classroom or good teacher can not help them learn better.

    Hmmmm... Sure. We're really good at teaching our students in terms of reading, math and science. But what else? Most of our youth have absolutely no clue about what it means to be a politically- and socially-aware member of society. Students lack civic and social education. Ask a random Singaporean youth about global affairs and more often than not, they'll be stumped. The government and education ministry prizes economically-relevant skills above all else. Nothing else matters.

    It is stressful to be a student here, even in primary school. For Primary Schoo Leaving Exam, the 6th graders are tested on what they learn from 3rd / 4th grade upwards, and sometimes the questions can be confusing, esp when it comes to Maths. And then it gets easy in the 1st year in secondary school, but in 3rd year, there was a great increase of what they learnt from 2nd yeae, but then in 4th year, there werw much more students gotta learn because there will be O levels at end of year. they were expected to capture fast in case they get left behind. If i am not wrong, O levels at end of 4th year includes what they learn in the earlier years. This can be stressful, not only with the large amount of content in each subject they have to remember, but also the number of subjects they have to handle. And the students are expected to achieve an A or at least B in all subjects.

Not everyone view exams as something to stress over about, especially one of my classmates who actually wanted to fail every single subject. He passed one so he was pretty upset about that. 😂

      dbm 4794 its not so bad lah. Yes a lot of students are "kiasu" but its because they want the best in their kids. I would know, I live here and a lot of my classmates have tuition because of theor parents. But, that being said, there are multiple pathways for the students to make it. Of course I'm not disagreeing with the fact that it is very stressful during exam season with the PSLE and O/N levels and that needs to be inproved on but at the end of the day, humans are the only resource Singapore has. So of course its gotta have this stressful highly competitive environment, and honestly I'm lucky that my parents dont care whether i get A or B, they care about whether I actually put in effort to do my best so I guess that helps me out a bit in terms of MY stress level and some my friends are the same. Honestly right, my class doesnt really care bout exams at all. Joking around all the time in class and then laugh at their horrible results in SA2, SA1 you know? And I dont know whether if it happens in other schools but my school just has a bunch of stuff like lunchtime concerts every once in a while by students, like it releives a bit of stress and having a lot of fun cheering on ya schoolmates and classmates and the ccas that wanted to perform for the concert. But from my own personal life, i actually didnt find our educational system that stressful. :)

    From the comments here, I can tell self-criticism is a national past time in Singapore

    • keff
      keff 11 месяцев назад

      This is all true, it is good for us, and is critical (forgive the pun) for us to progress further. The self criticism is closely tied with our highly held virtue of modesty or humility.
      But my purpose is to begin conversation that we ourselves realise this tendency is not shared by many advanced nations. This becomes important when we communicate, and compete with others.
      Especially with Americans, they take things very literally, and they come from an opposite culture of self-promotion. Having interacted with many Americans at work and socially, it took a few times for them to mention: "why do you guys have no confidence?" before I realised this our national trait. They interpret self effacement and modesty as a lack of confidence, or a self admitted lack of quality of our products.
      There is a lesson in this, that while we quietly expect others to see quality inherent in us or our products, we are living in a competing world of self promotion. Our overseas efforts can be much more effective if we realise this trait, whether it be exports, or services, or just cultural influence.
      All we have to do is to look at the disproportionate size of Korean soft power, and we can realise this particular difference in our cultures. The South Koreans are not unique in this. If we look at Japan, Hongkong etc. we can start seeing our trait of over-modesty a little better.

      And this, to be honest, is what I find truly interesting about the social dynamic here. As we Singaporeans are willing to reflect and criticise the apparent flaws even in a decent-enough system, is what drives our people to improve and refine it to a greater degree. This is actually evident in the education system here, which has undergone serious fundamental changes since the 1990s, from a highly banded, elitist and draconian system that bred a 'lost generation' of students whom struggled in the class strata based on exam grades alone, to a now more holistic approach with greater appreciation for 'beyond-the-exam-grades' skills in the 21st century. And as a Singaporean, I truly am rather appreciative of this, even if serious errors and cracks remain existent.

    LMFAO. Not all Primary and secondary schools have such a high budget where they can use smart boards or even laptops . Also, all students are subjected to standardized testing which if they fail they would get my supplementary classes which would be counterproductive since almost everyday the student will feel stress for the next test , homework and even projects since they will have less time to devote to these tasks .

    Some Singapore's young students are going through the whole comments board to shoot down anyone who has differed view from their opposing opinion about Singapore's educational system. I can tell that the student is likely holding a lot of anger within. Singapore should do more to reduce the stress of young student. On the other hand, Capitalism and globalization has created a very competitive world. 1.4 billion Chinese is quickly adapting to the modern pace and another 1.4 billion Indian in the pipeline, I don't see an easier life ahead for the next generation. Stress is inevitable when your desire is way bigger than your ability.

      It is heartening to see someone inspired by our system, but I sincerely feel that the amount of effort and intensity our nation puts to the system is highly demanding, and would require an insane amount of logistic cost, manpower cost, feasibility tests and all sorts of redtape and loopholes to work in India, such a colossal nation of over a billion people. It would be good to see a few cities adopt this first, albeit the concern being the insane inequality that would result from the disparity in quality of education between the cities and the villages...if India can even initiate such a pilot to begin with.

      I have to agree with you for quite some degree here regarding that error saying 'no tests' in the video and that controversial part about how teachers are programmed to be pro-PAP (come on; they are public servants, what do you expect), but I have got to say that you adopt a too myopic a view to claim that "nobody here is actually (sic) motivated" in Singapore. This really depends on your situation here, I believe. I may be unable to acknowledge your experiences, given that I have always breezed through the exams/tests/whatsoever here (taking A Levels this year, just saying), but I have seen for myself what constitutes as motivated learners that are not the stereotypical 'muggers' or an unmotivated group around. While I do admit that those like you constitute a significant amount of students in the population, there is still a majority at least, that thrives and reaps the benefits more so than the flaws in the education system after 10/13/16++ years.

Why else would they bother to put the weaker students in supplementary classes? It's so that they can ask the questions they wanted to ask in a normal class that still lingered in their heads!! GET FACTS FIRST ON WHY THINGS ARE DONE!! I really cannot believe how many of you can talk TRASH about your own education!! Then what huh?!? You want to fail and go work at McDonalds and live with your parents for the rest of your life is it?!??!!!! DONT COMPLAIN ABOUT STRESS WHEN MANY OTHERS DONT EVEN GET THE CHANCE TO DO SO!!!!

      +Anon Y. Mous the government is nothing but a group of insecure little girls. That is why they do not accept free speech. Furthermore, they brainwash Singaporeans into thinking that they are saints. I assure you that if the PAP were tasked to go to Greece and fix their economy, they would end up running back to Singapore crying for their mommies. Because unlike Singaporeans, the people of Greece were not fed PAP propaganda their whole lives. They would never stand for the PAP's dictatorship.

      Leaving Singapore would be the best thing anyone here can do, where we can live happily and voice our opinions without being arrested. Just look at Amos Yee, he expressed HIS opinions and thoughts on HIS video on HIS channel. People can choose whether they want to watch the video or not, but these brainwashed idiots vehemently condemned him and some even called the police; shameless fuckwits. And worst of all, they think that he deserved to be arrested. What he's saying must be true, if not why would the government want him arrested if what he's saying is incorrect?

      And if you noticed, the questions they give are always something like, 'Why is the Singapore government so sucessful?' (example) and never 'Do you think the Singapore Government is successful?' This is how they brainwash the students slowly; they never encourage opposing thoughts or encourage us to think independently and have our own opinions.

      It has a propaganda purpose to begin with, so why the outburst? In fact, I would look beyond what is skin deep and consider the legitimacy of some of the video's claims instead, as ultimately - even propaganda has its purpose (no pun intended). Take for instance at 4:38, where the American lady elaborated on the focus on commerce and employment that our education system is highly geared towards. At least, unlike US system which is rather flawed (they truly do Math with no intentions in mind, unlike in SG where there is some hints of legitimacy when it comes to sec school onwards: accountancy, business and engineering content-based math learnt in this stage of life), we do have an end in mine, albeit in the video does not show any problems and flaws to such a rigid structure (the fit into multiple smaller keyholes analogy: where in SG if you do not work in business/STEM/entrepreneurship fields, you're basically doomed), which can be argued and discussed upon separately and requires no need to feel emotional distressed about just because the video does not point them (again, the propaganda purpose).

      And as a JC 2 student this year (an equivalent of Year 12, High School 3rd), I am preparing for the GCSEs throughout November and it is one hell of a 'mugging' session, what we term locally as being intense studying. Tests everyday to polish our recalling abilities, weed off recurrent errors and insecurities, and just physical fatigue each day. Nonetheless, it is a process that I still can enjoy (quite masochistic, ain't I?) with the knowledge that it can lead me to a better future, at least. With a level of guarantee and security. Plus me being a little bit of an oddball unlike the large majority of Singaporeans who are 'below' me according to the highly demeaning 'bell curve' education system, tests and exams to me are just another set of practices again and again, albeit with a more serious context to them.

    • nhy123123
      nhy123123 Год назад

      I agree with you - although it is a necessary evil as SG relies on manpower - her people as a sole resource to keep the nation relevant in an increasingly competitive global scene. Heck, just PISA will tell you Shanghai is trashing us flat, when they actually have more students that our minuscule excuse of a nation. I amuse at your analogy of us being "another Asian country" though, which is precisely a stereotype (positive one) that really makes us rather untouchably more professional than any other cultures in the world. But mind you - Asia is large. What you (assuming you're an American) might be referring to might be East Asians in particular.

All this started is because a fucking teacher didnt respect ma privacy.

    Sry to say but, as a singaporean student, the education system is bullshit. All they care about is getting good grades. Those whose grades are hopeless are doomed to suffer in the future. The education sucks. Seriously

      Nil well maybe if you listened to your teacher, you wouldn't have bad grades, there's a school for those who didn't do well in school to learn life skills so they can at least have a job

      Anon Y. Mous You guys just cannot cope then leave. Singapore may be tough but it provides the most opportunity to improve. EG.Some ITE students do very well. Its called a meritocracy not entitlement. Singapore must be competitive as we are small and have less of a manpower pool. In USA even if you get C you could probably work at some gas station. Its just the survival of the fittest with a lot of backup.

    I lived outside of Singapore many years and have attended schools in both Asian and the US. So i know first hand what the pros and cons are. When my children reached schooling age, I moved my family back to Singapore solely because of our education system and have never regretted the decisions.

    As an American, I wish our educational system was more like this. How unfortunate... We'll focus on our education after the world stops treating us like treasures, especially since we destroy more money & resources than anyone else in history. Congrats to you Singapore, I'm an admirer

      Hey dude, it's not abt doing well or not because sg system is fked up and that's 100% true. Those who really wanna be doctors are deprived of a chance cause their results miss by a bit whereas those who score well but their heart is not in medicine get places there because they've been indoctrinated that medicine is one of the paths to success. They end up quitting med sch halfway and the vacancies are wasted

      I'm a Singaporean, and what Krieger Helton says is entirely true, the education system here is crap. If an education system is intended to produce thinking individuals, Singapore fails miserably. It simply produces robots trained only to obey orders. Students who memorise pages and pages of textbooks and those who obey orders are deemed "smarter" and creativity is frowned upon here in Singapore. That is one of the reasons why Singapore has one of the highest suicide rates in Asia and is the country with the most unhappy and emotionless people. It is depressing to see so many people living without spontaneity, so many people getting stuck in the rat race. It's like living without a soul and purpose. I don't see genuinely happy people who feel socially and spiritually connected. It's stressful to be living without real freedom. We live within boundaries here physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I'm afraid to express myself in fear of being nailed or blacklisted. In fact, if it wasn't for the internet, where we can express ourselves and learn from others more easily, I would have genuinely believed everything the teachers in school said never been able to pursue what I love and improve my general knowledge (besides the propaganda we swallow in school). Anyways, don't go there for their education, it's really just bullshit, like this propaganda video which is so fake. It's what they want you to believe.

    Education in Hong Kong and Singapore is just more organized and systematized for standardized teaching. It doesn't mean it is better way to teach our kids.

    Weingarten watched, but picked up only what she wanted to imagine she saw.  Singapore has all Singaporean, well mannered children so of course it works.  Whine gardener is  too dense to see that this could never work in a country that values the loudest whiner over he/she who achieves, and where correcting a student's paper - AT THE DOCTORAL LEVEL- is seen as racist micro aggression..
