I believe parents play a big part in a child's upbringing.
I've had buddies from really poor & broken families but they are doing very well in their careers currently
When I was in secondary school, there were also gangsters in my school, and some are my classmates. Well, I have chosen not to follow or tag along with them. Bottomline is depend on individual.

I strongly agree with you.
Unfortunately, many school principals want to make their school ranking goes up so they may expel students with poor academic grades and those who like to skip classes.
Many years ago, I saw a news article in Strait times about the principal of Si Ling Sec. Sch.
He took in students with poor academic grades, whom are expelled from other schools, because he fear they may end up as gangsters. I hope other school principals will follow his example.
There's a place in KL, called Jinjang which is infamous for its triads.
The secondary school there used to have a bad name until a new principal came in and cleaned up the place: saving those that can be saved and expelling the hardcore "no medicine to cure" types.
I heard he even went to talk to the triad bosses to leave his students alone.
Unfortunately after he retired the place went down again.
He told us he didnt want the Sec 5 students pulling down the rankings of the entire school
if you are not doing well in the elite school , they will ask you to take the exams as private candidate, so that your contribution won't affect the school.
The school should serve to help the students. Not the other way round. Not the students serving to push up the school's name, just so the principals look good.
I think the education system should severely demerit the school for every student they expel or reject on such selfish grounds.
Demerit the school, are you joking?
garment gives funding to school which can perform. no performance no fund. no fund no new computer, blah, blah, blah. so to be principal als no fun.
just like sports - shooting get gold medals, next day it was reported that garment will give fund to shooting. triathlon no medal - garment close thier eyes and ask them to eat grass.
btw the policies makers should be heartlanders living in HDB. not those scholars who is living in heaven.
this is the cruel reality of our system - merciless. fall from grace and fall from society these youths will search for their identities and significant in other means.
I was previously from Ngee Ann Sec School. First batch of students, principal Bob Koh. What an a**hole, hated him.
in the end, he promoted to be RI principal smlj..... Never forget that day he came in & told all the sec 5NA students to just quit school & go ITE, so that it wouldnt bring the rankings down................................
Anyway, back to the topic. I hope the parang welding retards get what they deserve. They all came from the same common school called retards international
I cant imagine myself coming down my block late at night for a cig & then kena surrounded by barely legal idiots asking if I'm from a gang, say yes or no also kena hack. Think I gotta bring down my gold club, wood club would be best when I go down for a cig
And I seriously thought those gangsters are extinct. Only left with small hooligans wannabes. Looks like the wannabes has level up just like Mafia Wars in Facebook. XD
I was friends with them but never joined them in their activities. One has to have a straight mind really.
