but I do see people showing a whole complete (final) overview, while not showing the individual steps, instead they just use a pointer to talk about the steps......not so clear for some people.....
Which is why I mentioned I don't agree with how they're spending all the time. But there's no doubt they're spending on education. And a lot, I must say. Necessarily or not, I'm too tiny a frog to have the holistic outlook of the education.
Before you rebut for the sake of rebuttal. Are you saying public education in Singapore is expensive, or unaffordable for the masses? Or you simply feel some of the expenditure is wasteful? Remember that the thread is started by a lamentation of how Malaysia has "free education" and how depressing it is for him by comparison.
Quantity Vs. Quality
All need to be spoonfed and told what to do......Enterprising? Hardly
Social etiquette? Vanishing...
Are these the solutions to the education problems?
Is it fair to say Malaysia is giving free education because the standard of education provider is lower than ours? Why not we see it this way, a developing nation is trying to fulfill its obligation to its citizens by giving free education to all, while maintaining the current standards of education. Can we assume the pay of the teachers and qualities of the textbooks remain the same? If yes, then why are we making statements like “oh, their quality is poorer, so they can afford to give education” “oh, if we do away with this and do away with that, we can also give free education”.
To maintain a high standard of education, we need to spend a lot of money in providing education. This is statement true?
Yes, we do spend a lot of money to air condition the class room, to build indoor stadium with carpet grass.
Does this raise the standard of our education?
It is like saying, “If I give the student a Nike Air Max, that will make him/her run like a Kenyan.” “Give him a Mont blanc pen and he will be articulated”
I believe the success of an education lies in the methods of teaching, as well as, cultivating good values. We need only a chalk and a blackboard to do this. People will argue we need to have the latest technology to excel. But today’s world is ever changing and at a fast pace. What we learnt yesteryear will become obsolete today. What matter most, is to equip our students with ability to handle changes and the basic skills to keep learning new things.
Asking those who think our education standard is high, Why are we always sending our brightest to overseas for education?
Why so many of our students have to travel overseas for higher education?
Not too long a ago, there is a wide discussion about our education system.
Generally, it is agreed that our education system has failed us. We have been training batch after batch of students who are only good at beating the system. Our students lack the skill of critical thinking and are not well articulated when compared to the western counterparts. We may kick as’s in international math and science competitions. But where are our rocket scientists?
Do we need to pay the full price of education to get world class education?
What is the full price then?
I have warned you numerous times before and I honestly do not see why you insist on coming into CS and using the resources here for your bashing of the system. If you are seriously that unsatisfied, go somewhere else.
