      "Daring Maddy" is a young female undergraduate teacher trainee from Switzerland, currently here in Singapore for her on-the-job practicum training, as an assistant teacher in a primary school for the next three weeks. After the 1st couple of days, "Daring Maddy" is HORRIFIED at the Singapore Education System. The following is her YouTube video, uploaded yesterday 19 July 2017.

      MY HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE WITH TEACHING IN A PRIMARY SCHOOL IN SINGAPORE

      I will be an assistant teacher here in a primary school for three weeks and will share my experience so far. I would LOVE to hear what you think about it, if it is always like this or is this just an exception??? Please help me find the missing puzzle piece. You always hear such positive things about the education system here. Singapore is ranked at the very top in PISA tests. How does this happen, if lessons are so bad??

      You feel particularly sad for her because if you check out Daring Maddy's YouTube account, she was actually really excited for the past 3 months (in Switzerland) and had been eagerly looking forward to coming to Singapore to teach.

    • She is obviously expecting our schools to be all fun and games, which is obviously not the case. If that is what she wants, perhaps the kindergarten is a better place for her.

    • Singapore has a greatly decent education system yet it is exceptionally testing you must be extremely constant and devoted to do well. Paper Writing Service Additional curricular exercises are emphatically empowered and relying upon which school you go to the offices can be cutting edge. Since Singapore is such a multicultural nation, vegan sustenance is effectively gotten to at schools and in the city.
