The current education system was built for an industrial era that doesn't exist anymore. Instead of academic knowledge, school needs to equip students with the skills and disposition to thrive in a world that is interconnected, interdependent, complex, uncertain and ambiguous. We are not preparing kids for a standardised world, so why do we persist with standardised tests?


Writer, Parent

Most parents I speak to agree our education system is not working for most kids. It is elitist. But we are so afraid to speak up. Well, we must, for the sake of future generations. We can change for the better.

If robots are getting better at being robots, if machines are getting better as being machines, then we human beings need to get better at being human. This is what we need to emphasise to our young people today - the need to develop their human skills. And education needs to evolve to give young people opportunities to activate and be evaluated on their human skills. The suggestions in this report are exactly what education needs to be more relevant to our kids today!

Doctor, Parent

Not enough differentiation to support kids with special needs, different educational needs, those who need help socially/behaviourally. Classrooms are too full for teachers to really focus and support different kids and their needs.

Fixation on maximising marks for 11-12 yr olds rather than everybody being taught to maximise learning and interest in learning. The pressure on kids and parents is ridiculous.

Han Jiamin

Marketing Professional, Parent

Having seen how my children are intrinsically motivated and curious about the world from a young age, I wish to create an environment that would sustain that instead of killing that during their growing years. And the only way to do so is by giving them sufficient time and space to explore and expand on their interests, whether or not it corresponds to the rigid (and limited) academic requirements of the education system.

Tan Yew Zing Jeffrey

Retired, Parent

Thanks for the great initiative. I truly believe parents who have realised our education system does not benefit our children’s well-being need to voice out and be consistent and persistent in order for change to happen. 

Keep it up!

Please looks into support for neurodivergent students. I have been to dozens of school counselors and school recommended psychologists, and my ADHD was only diagnosed in adulthood

Peiru Teo

CEO of Tech Company, Parent

The future will only be more diverse and trying to prepare them with hard skills far into the future is futile. Children need to learn how to learn, build resilience, curiosity, creativity, problem solving skills, self regulation, and so many more soft skills. These can hardly be tested in a national examination. Children will shine if we give them time to explore their strengths and nurture them. They are not all the same and should not feel any less because they cannot score in the narrow confines of a certain number of subjects.


Head of business at automotive company, Parent

Curriculum even at lower primary is so packed, I can’t imagine how the weaker students can cope without tuition. It’s not just stressful for the students but teachers and parents too. The fundamental over-emphasis on PSLE needs to change, if not it will just be a vicious downward spiral for the whole ecosystem.

Edwin Ting

Marketing Executive, Parent

This initiative is well-thought-out. The existing education system focuses on accumulating and utilizing knowledge, which only sets our children up to be good followers or great "factory" workers. What's lacking is the development of the child as an individual, someone with their own thoughts and passion, the child inter-related to everyone else in the world and how they can connect to create new possibilities for the future.

Michelle Zhang

Project Consultant & Active Volunteer, Parent

My daughter has benefitted from an afflilated secondary school which greatly reduces pressure of PSLE and also no anxiety o being in a brand new environment without any friends. Similarly, i have good friends since my Pri 1 days because most of us stayed together for 10 years in same primary and secondary school.


Bank Regulator, Parent

I strongly support smaller class size so that teachers can engage in more discussion based learning with their students and every child gets the opportunity to speak up during class.
