I feel that good family support benefits our children more effectively. To rely on Govt/MOE/etc is unrealistic.

There are threads on what some KSP members would like to see in new MOE directions. Many good suggestions were mentioned.

Totally agree, Jennifer. What I meant was government to put the school systems not to be only focusing on academic as the teachers are really pushing the kids very very hard. Kids coming home with loads of homework.. at times 3-4hours of homework!

If comparing to other country's school system, the kids develop more self learning skills, more space for creativity...

One thing I feel we should NOT be doing is to compare ours with other countries' system as our environment is very different, with huge emphasis on psle and s1 streaming.

P.s. Oops...missing thr 'NOT'

Yes, my son just complained when I told him to start sleeping early....I had to remind him that HIS holidays started since Oct 2...longer than his sister.
2012...a year of sheer hard work...but thank goodness ended with joy.
