hmm. this is a pretty odd topic. i'm assuming most of the people here already finished schooling.
my school currently has a new principal transferred in. and as far as i can tell, the policies that he propose dun seem exactly civil, but rather, pardon me for my choice of words, crude, barbaric and quite ancient.
to give u an example,
he claims that our sch (mind u. we are a top sch in singapore. i'll withhold the sch name for obvious reasons. dun wanna get into trouble) will do badly in our A lvls, when even our first batch of A lvl students havent even got the chance to take the A lvls yet. and rather than encouraging the students to work hard, he simply throws the verdict: u are gonna screw up.
his new policy: guys and girls need to maintain 1 elbow apart. if this was in... a sch with bad reputation and low level of discipline, i'll be alright with it. but we are afterall a top school in singapore, and i think this crude form of policy doesnt reflect too well in the sch.
oh another: late comers, after 5 times will be expelled/suspension. cant remember exact rule.
hmm. top schs having this kind of treatment. either we are getting worse, or he is just very dictatorial.
i'll post a short excerpt, from a student of his previous sch, paraphrased so that u cant google it.
tells students they look like TERRORISTs as their hair is long, facial hair is long..well. another reason being, his control over the english language isnt too strong. might be the reason why he makes such comments?.calls the indians in their schools gangs.
i would wonder, does having such acts in singapore actually reflect well that we have world class standard education? or just simply wayang?
and adding a point, he even misread the sch motto, and the irony being, he is the principal, he is chinese educated, and the motto is in chinese, 4 words only.
oh yes. if anyone feels that this thread is simply a mindless rant, i'll be fine with deleting it.
i' just curious abt ur views on this incident. i do not wish to take a too negative stand on this issue yet. thank you:x
AND PLS MAKE THIS A CIVIL CONVERSATION/DEBATE. if anyone needs clarification on another's viewpoint, do say so.
and i do not wish any innocent school to be mistaken. its not dunman high. this is the furthest i can reveal. i have received many concerned replies from parents inquiring abt if it was dunman. i assure u its not. and its ranked in top 10 of the singapore sch ranks.
