A BASELESS STIGMA
There are no Neighbourhood Schools, only good schools in neighbourhoods.
This was a phrase echoed by the former education minister, Mr Heng Swee Keat. CPD Singapore Education Services Pte Ltd supports the minister’s views. CPD Singapore believes that it is essential to de-stigmatise neighbourhood schools as inferior.
Every school allows students to take the same national examinations to move onto the next phase of their education. Surely, different streams may have a slightly longer route of achieving the same success but it does not deny anyone from reaching the same opportunities. This is a pinnacle of Singapore’s meritocratic education system.
The student not the resources
CPD Singapore Education Services Pte Ltd understands that some students require a slower approach to learning, and schools should be equipped with the right resources and teaching strategies for each type of learner.
