Interview on 杨琮仁 and Learning Out of the Box.

Abstract from the news report:
“Parents in Singapore are facing a dilemma.

On one hand, the government is urging them to reduce study time for their children or taking them outdoors… just to play.

On the other hand, a highly competitive education system forces them to enrol their children into advanced studying classes and that includes weekends. Miro Lu explains…

Learning Math on Sunday afternoons is no great fun but unfortunately that is part of a routine for many Singaporean children.

Tuition might be seen as an extra help for struggling children in other parts of the world, but it is viewed as a necessity in Singapore.

This tuition centre even offers classes for parents so they can be better equipped to help their children at home.”
