Education system in Singapore

Education in Singapore is managed by the Ministry of Education (MOE), which directs education policy.  Singapore’s government is conscious that its citizens are its most valuable asset and so the education system is designed with the goal of producing skilled, motivated, multi-lingual students capable of playing a role in the global economy.

In Singapore, both officially and unofficially, education is regarded as the key to social mobility.  This means that the education system is well run, well-funded and held in high esteem; at the same time it also means that it can become overly-competitive, results driven and obsessed with academic success at the exclusion of all else. Whether these characteristics should be regarded as positive or negative depends on the individual.
