How has the Singapore education system changed in the past few years?
We have to acknowledge that education is a lifelong process.
Even when you leave school, you continue to learn.
Our school system has changed significantly in the past few years.
But we must always remember that it is the children who will receive the affect by the changes, and they must be our first priority.
So our efforts have to focus on developing their capabilities, skills and qualities.
I would like to see our schools do more to help students build a love for learning.
Teachers and parents should take more interest in their children’s learning, and encourage them to take an active part in the process.
How important is Singapore’s education system? What makes it so successful?
Education is very important for a country’s development. It can make a big difference to the lives of our people.
Our education system has been successful because we have always focused on the future, on preparing our children for the world ahead of them.
We have always taken into account what our young people will need in their future careers and lives, and what they should know in order to succeed.
We have also taken the lead in ensuring that our education system keeps pace with technological developments.
For example, we now have more than 50 e-learning centres across the island, and more than 2,000 schools are connected to the Internet.
This means that students can access information from around the world on their own, instead of having to wait for teachers to provide it.
