positive relationship

By investing in quality across the board, we make sure that Singapore remains a place where it is your ability and effort that determine success, not who your parents are or where you start off from. We must remain a place where education is a path for social mobility, from one generation to the next…We have to keep a system in Singapore where every student is motivated to put in his best effort, and is given the best opportunity to move up through education. We have an ability-based system, but it is one that opens up ladders all along the way, so that it is driven by each student’s aspirations. We are not saying “this is what you are capable of, and this is as far as you can go”. What we are saying is
“let’s help you find your strengths, and help you get to where you want to go”.
