    • SINGAPORE – Upset with the pressure-cooker education system here and the obsession with academic grades? Don’t be too quick to “blame the system”, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office Chan Chun Sing said on Friday (Nov 24).

      The minister added: “We can be the agents of change, rather than waiting for the system to change … The choice is entirely ours.”

      Citing a personal example, Mr Chan recalled how his daughter had once asked him, when she was in Secondary Two, to explain the chaos theory – a concept he had learnt only in university.

      He then asked the audience whether, as a parent, one ought to try to teach the concept or call up the school to demand to know why were they were teaching it and “wasting my child’s time” in secondary school.

      How a parent responded to such situations would teach a child a different value, the minister told his audience at the NTUC Centre Auditorium.
