    The quote:

    yet to observe any beneficial effects of pushing children so hard in primary school, apart from high stress levels and sapping of intellectual curiosity
    is very true, Sir...

    Cheaper, faster, better.

    Too bad it sucks to be cheaper, have to do things faster and still be better.

    Funny how in other countries where they dont need to be cheaper, faster or better, the policy wonks get paid less.

    How does that work?

    I know, i know, no natural resources, human resources our only asset.... yaddda yadda.

    To paraphrase Buffet, "I buy companies with competitive moats."

    Are the citizens behind the moat or drowning in it?

    Back in my days, I don't see any of my friends wearing specs uptill P2 except those who are born pah jiao.

    Nowadays, I see K2 use specs already. Why is it so hard to maintain eyesight nowadays? Should we ask Galileo?

    Why the heck would formal algebra be banned?

    It's bloody retarded, because the solution almost always would involve the same principles regardless.

    Just stupid pretzel logic making things more convoluted for the sake of difficulty and differentiation.

    In the real world you take the shortest, easiest route between 2 points, nobody is gonna give you extra brownie points for climbing over everest with a donkey on your back.

    40 students.

    64books more than Gals, while 1boys = 2gals

    64/2 already 32boys.

    8gals*1 = 8books.

    I can say this way, since there is no limit to the books amount. So, 32boys 8gals will gives you 72books.

    Logic screwed.

    Algebra FTW. To be kiasu, must teach my children Engineering Maths at Nursery.

    -_-"

    32boys = 32 x 4 books = 128
    8 gals have 8 books.

    128 - 8 is not 64 -_-" fail

    I wouldnt want to make an assumption that kids are dumber than they look?

    Kids have demonstrated an ability to manipulate us old fogies when they are barely out of the pram and we think they cant handle logic?

    Schooling defines boundaries, often arbitrary ones.

    not all kids at that age can take algebra..... some probably can...
    some cannot... just too early.
