Updates from Today.
From next year, every primary school will set aside at least 40 places for children with no prior connection. We will give every child a chance to enter the primary school of his choice and we will continue to upgrade the quality of schools.
Parents think PSLE determines a student’s future, hence there is tremendous stress as the whole family takes the PSLE. Today, parents ask one another – what is your child’s T-score? I don't think this is healthy at age of 12.
