Education in Singapore
MOE believes in education system that will educate one not only academically but as a whole. MOE believes that this system will provide suitable education for students who are strong in different areas and develop a good opportunity for the students to reach their potentials. MOE wishes that through the different education they are providing, students will be able to progress with the values they have learnt in their life.
In my opinion, holistic education is very helpful. It will help to identify and develop the potentials of a child. This means that one may succeed with a certain talent even if he is not good academically. Thus, I feel that MOE policy of holistic education will enable joy in some students as they do what they enjoy such as arts.
