Frequently Asked Questions
Why our children are struggling in school?
As a start, lets understand how our Singapore education system works.
Our schools teach our children in a mass lecture format.
How well our children learn depends on
- How well they received the information
- How well they retain the information
- How well they apply the information
Based on my experience, the problem lies in stage 1 and 2.
It favours individuals with strong language abilities and excellent memory.
Schools try to solve the problem by holding additional classes and hope that by repeating the lesson, student can receive and remember information better.
There are few problems with this approach.
- As most teachers hold additional classes, school will end much later. Students become more tired and absorb much lesser information than expected.
- Sometimes, student do not understand only a small section of the lesson. Putting them through the entire lesson is not efficient.
- Students may not have the time to recap what was taught. So when more information is given in future lessons, they are unable to link up with what was taught earlier.
