In a facebook post yesterday evening ahead of the release of PSLE results today, PM Lee wrote that students should not worry too much about their PSLE result as they will still be able to continue education in a “good school”.
Seeing as there are some schools that have minimum PSLE result requirements, it can only be assumed that PM Lee means to say that every school is a good school.
It seems that PM Lee is also touting the PAP’s new favourite line when it comes to education.
Does he honestly believe that every school is a good school? If he did, why did he and his children attend ‘elite’ schools?
As the Vice-Principal of Jurong West Secondary School said recently:
“How many of our leaders and top officers who say that every school is a good school put their children in ordinary schools near their home?”
(See: Jurong West Sec VP openly criticises ministers who say ‘every school is a good school’)
In his post, PM Lee had highlighted that every school has dedicated teachers and he also reminded children and parents to put more emphasis on holistic learning.
"Above all, I hope you will grow in resilience, drive and determination. For when all is said and done, these will help you succeed in life." He wrote.
