Co-Acting Education Minister Ong Ye Kung has said that the education system of the future will be driven by the “bottom-up” aspirations of Singaporeans.
Mr Ong said that his ministry will pursue an education system based on student aspirations from the ground up, and this in turn would have a big impact on the progress of higher education in Singapore.
The aim is to create diversity in credentials that people achieve.
By contrast, the education system of the past was driven by national needs such as training workers to attract foreign investment and companies into Singapore.
