Education is the way, the greatest leveler


If you have children, (I have), I will encourage them to study hard, get a govt scholarship, bestest an OMS, or betterer best, a President Scholarship, then come back and join the Administrative Service. That is the road to success. I remember someone said this, can’t remember who. I got dementia. Anyway, I think it was good advice. Maybe it still is. No? Who said No? Kee chiu!
 

Please do not advise me not to send my children to the universities. I will clobber you. I will take my ‘char kiak’ and knock your head. How can you give me this kind of bad advice? If university degree is no good, the MOM and ICA would have stopped taking graduates from other countries to work here. Why you advise our children not to go to universities and keep on bringing in foreigners with foreign degrees and degrees from you know where?
 

I swear I will take the good advice to send my children to universities, to get a govt scholarship and to join the Administrative Service. Don’t tell me this is bad and wrong. I don’t believe you.

If one is daft enough to believe in this bullshit, I have two questions.

1. Why all minister kids go to university and most likely go to overseas top university and many with scholarships some more.

2. Why import so many FT to study in our university with all expenses paid scholarships and also import many FT graduates from third rate universities as top FT.

If they stop the above two that is when I start to believe but this is as good as seeing the sun rise from the west. Possible or not u tell me lar.

Hi RB, Good morning.Another day of spreading good advice. However, today your advice not so good. ITE is the way to go. If I had my days again I will go to the poly, tech college, learn a trade and not bother about the uni. Everyday for the past weeks the wise men and women in power have been telling us that university is NOT the only way to success. Therefore it must be true, because the wise people have all said so. I am sure there will be a rush towards the polytechnics and the colleges. University will be only for the foreign students with government scholarships. So, RB please give good advice.

Ha ha ha

If this xian tao garment, oops wrong, should be char tao, oops wrong again. Let's try again. Hmmmm ...... should be Char Loong. Oops still wrong. How should one "quantify " this Char Tao and mai hum garment in their policies so far since 1990? Maybe a combined "quantification - hsien tao " could be apt to jointly describe their "image" among many sinkies for the various policies dished out since 1990? Leemember "GOAL 2010"? "SWISS STD OF LIVING "? "MORE GOOOOOOOOD YEARS"? "GST IS TO HELP THE POOR "? "MORE FOREIGNERS IS TO CREATE JOB VACANCIES FOR SINKIES "? "KEEPING CPF TILL 95 IS TO TAKE CARE OF SINKIES IN CASE THEY LOSE THE MONEY IN THE CASINOS "? "NS For Sinkies is good, scholarships and university vacancies for foreigners is to secure our children's future "? "CROWDED MRT AND BUSES is good for SINKIELAND "? "High asset prices and property bubbles good for SINKIELAND so that GDP numbers can be boosted and inflated to flatter this red dot "? "SINKIELAND education is the best in the world but SINKIELAND needs 3rd world university graduates to fill all the top ceo and senior management positions "?

Daft! Daft! Daft!

Paper generals all laughing behind sinkies back?

They could be thinking next tell sinkies eat shit is good for them sinkies also believe?

At least 40% sinkies likely dun believe a single word from this ermmmmmmm ......... "xian tao " garment anymore?

50 times bitten sinkies still not shy?

40% Sinkies already 5m times shy?

Anon 8:43, your advice will be good in the 70s. But maybe still ok if we want to let foreigners take over this country of ours.

Anon 8:49's advice is more pragmatic. I like it. No need uni or poly degrees. Just join the right party and do the right things.

Ok, my advice is abit conservative, 'si pan' in hokien.

If your children go to university, they won't be daft anymore.
They will become trouble-makers for me.
And I can't CON-verse with them anymore.
Worse.
They will want to vote Opposition because their university will teach them to listen to diverse opinions;
And that nobody has a monopoly on wisdom.

Education - The Greatest Leveler

redbean
Why are you so stupid?
You think I want a level playing field or a game where the rules favour me?
You think I want what is good for Singaporeans or what is good for me and my political party & cronies?

Taking private degree, be careful. Now that's a good advice.

A better advice would be to go to India. All Indian degrees are recognised under CECA. So no have to worry about private degrees.

I send all my children to university.
But don't do what I do.
Do what I say.
I don't want children of Singaporean citizens competing with the children from my PAP citizens and alien citizens.

Singaporean children should only go to poly because I see Singaporeans no up.
Oh! Please don't forget to vote for me in GE 2016.
And remember to fuck off immediately after voting.
You are not supposed to be loitering around in the polling booth.

How about the degree from the
University of Financial Trade?

So what about it?
We recognize all aliens with alien university degrees.
For Singaporeans it is different.
We will scrutinize your qualification all the way from primary school to university.
We want to look for reasons to exclude you from competing with PAP citizens and alien citizens.

Wah lau eh, you people are full of creativity this morning. Yes, must be TGIF.

@ RB: Depends what you mean by "education".

I don't subscribe to the idea that one is "educated" simply because they managed to get a piece of paper or "certification" from some "institution" of some repute.

»» the greatest leveler ««

Level WHAT exactly? Who the fuck wants "level". In a competitive world aka "meritocracy" the idea is to have some advantage which will put you ABOVE the field and DISTINGUISH yourself from the hungry, equally driven and not always fair competition

Got "unique selling point"?

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Matilah, when you tried to define education, I was telling myself, there he goes again. You think you are holding a tutorial or you think no one knows the difference between a formal education and education? Everyone here knows what we are talking about except you.

Then you go into leveler and competition and meritocracy, all in one gulp. Please clear up your muddle head. Education being a great leveler is also about meritocracy and about competition except that everyone is given a fair chance. Of course you are going to say there is no fair chance and I agree.

But that kind of academic exercise is for the academia or for being who are bored to death and just want to talk, talk and talk to kill time, a discussion for the sake of talking. So what if one party thinks he won a clever argument?

Anonymous said...

Matilar, what is the diff between writing your books and making a post here? Any different? Answer is no diff cause all are rubbish though the books will be more interesting. Hehe

I wonder how many PAP ministers' children will go and study in ITEs, colleges or polytechnics. It will be revealing to see if they walk the talk. I guess all this downgrading of the university education and upgrading of ITEs, colleges or polytechnics education will convince Singaporeans that there are alternatives to a degree. Let us see if there will be a lesser number of applicants for university places in the coming years. Well, if there are more vacancies in the Singapore universities, then there will be more room for the oversea students to come in with Singapore government scholarships. GREAT !!! More potential FTs.

This is LIVE ANIMAL FARM in action. The pigs want to continue ruling the other animals and so tell them No Degree GOOD and Degree BAD. Sound familiar?

Academia? Can you get a job or not? ;-)

'Education is the Greatest Leveller'.

Death is the Ultimate Leveller.

Why waste time to study for a degree when time can be used to make money?

Or like me, spend the Time to play spiders and fly kites.

Degree or no degree oso live, educated, famous and rich also get sick and die. Dont believe? Ask Kwan Yew.

Just do what LKY has done - go to the top university in the world and get a degree. When not sure - use LKY as an example.

You are too kind lah. Yes, I am ex-spurt in all the fields you mentioned...so what good is a degree? Especially a useless one with no market value.

That is my point: many "useless" degrees have NO MARKET VALUE...those fuckers study for 3-5 years, come out and :: NO JOB....quick...go down to McDonalds and apply or ladies post your "come fuck me $50" advertisement on Craig's List!
