Blur Tiger Mom digs deeper hole for herself/ Wrong KPI

In Uncategorized on 29/11/2016 at 5:25 am

A kiasu tiger mom gave her side of a story that has gripped local cyberspace. A newspaper article reported that despite her son getting straight As in her PSLE, she was unhappy that he got 231 points not the 250, she expected and had “punished” her son.

Her explanation showed her in a worse light. She was unhappy with her son because he got 230 points, not the 231 she expected? Wah lan.

As far as I’m concerned, I only want to know if the points he got, would get him into the school of her choice i.e. the “right” school. Nothing else matters. And no-one other than me seems to have asked this question.

PLSE points don’t really matter (bar bragging rights), getting into the “right” school matters.

All this fixation by her and S’poreans about the boy’s points prove my point that S’poreans work stupid from young.

I repeat, from young, S’poreans work hard but stupid, not smart. Who to blame? Blame the PAP administration who is responsible for the education system.

Lim Swee Say (http://www.theonlinecitizen.com/2016/11/02/lim-swee-say-improve-productivity-or-singapores-competitive-primacy-will-be-risked/) should have a word with the relevant minister of education.

I’ll end on a morbid note. Some wag posted on FB

The urgent thing now is to send an open letter to mdm soon’s kid, telling him if he can’t take it anymore, there are places he can run to for help. And put a list of counselling centers and homes for kids like him.

  1. I’ll go 1 step further & say it doesn’t even matter which school you go to. With legs open policy & leveling of playing field for millions of ahnhes, cheenas, Burmese, peenois, etc etc,it is more about the individual’s own wisdom & harnessing of internal strengths to offer unique selling & compelling characteristics, rather than which school, Uni or even degree. Many m’sian, ahnehs, peenois & burmese doctors are suppressing wages of younger Sinkie doctors in restructured hospitals. Once these foreign doctors start migrating en masse to pte practice, those in Mt E, Raffles, Parkway also eat (still expensive) grass.
