maybe government, e.g. MP should start to send their kids to neighbourhood school to convince us that all schools are the same ;-)

Personally, I do believe that all government primary schools are good schools. They follow the same syllabus and teachers are from the same training institute and regulated by the same MOE.

But some schools are simply better than the others due to exceptional leadership & committments from the principal & teachers.

Well said... and it is precisely because of the leadership & commitments from the school which makes the school different.. and I must say, some very significantly different..

And therefore we kiasuparents flood them.. :wink: :wink: :wink:
