United World College Singapore is a school run on the comprehensive school system in Britian staffed by expatriate teachers from Britian. Attending this school will facilitate entry to UK tertiary education, not to forget to mention the fact that the philosophy behind a British edcuation is to produce students capable of thinking independently and analytically. Such as producing more Gopalan Nairs. For instance a British schoolboy would be willing to say openly (and why not) that men should have freedom to speak and criticize, not something a Singaporean schoolboy would dare to do, after going through Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore schools.
"The United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA) has told parents that it is no longer accepting applications from locals, as the number of Singaporeans in the college had "reached a significant level"."
Day by day ever more Singaporeans are trying to avoid sending their children to schools staffed by
In any case, a
In this way every single Singaporean child is forced to go through Singapore government schools where their brains are subjected to a sort of bleaching, schools where they are taught to obey their teachers, do as they are told; stand up when you are told, sit down when you are told; and in effect simply be a robot to serve the Lee Kuan Yew government when they have finished with you. You then become a model Singapore citizen, one who does not go on strike, does not write blogs which Lee does not like and someone who does not end up as another troublemaker like Gopalan Nair, writing this.
Why is the
Singapore teachers just like their parents have already been sufficiently brainwashed to comport to the Singapore way of thinking (quite obvious, because otherwise they would have been fired long ago) which is, just do as you’re told, obey the Lee Kuan Yew government, or otherwise Lee will get you.
So a pathetic miserable helpless child going through school taught by a bunch of these intimidated castrated, horse in blinkers souls, is not going to be any better than them when they have completed the program. In the end, at the other end of the assembly line, having drummed a mindless sense of conformism into their heads, the product you get is a robot; a human walking robot; exactly what Lee Kuan Yew and his government wants. The human product you get at the end is the average Singaporean you see today; a very bad specimen indeed; someone who is unable to realize that there is no need to live under any dictatorship least of all that of Lee Kuan Yew and son.
With more and more parents realizing that their minds and thought process has already been permanently damaged as a result of Lee Kuan Yew's brainwashing regimen of you listen to me or else style of life; they don't want the same to happen to their kids. An American or European teacher is unlike the Singaporean human robots. Being expatriates they are not afraid to speak their mind and naturally would encourage such confidence in their children too. And the end result, independent thinking human beings capable of deciding between good and bad without fearing for their lives.
If too many people have the ability to think independently with confidence, Lee is afraid his position will be threatened. Dictators around the world prefer unquestioning robots like Singaporeans are. More and more Singaporean parents are realizing the harm being done to their children’s brains and are trying to opt out.
The situation has reached a dangerous point for the Singaporean dictatorship. This case tells us that Singaporean parents simply do not want to educate their children through
This is a moment when this government which does not appear to have their heads squarely on their shoulders to read the message on the wall. The repressive measures; denying free speech and expression, denying the right to assembly, clamping down on the Internet, preventing speeches in public, dismissing judges who are not compliant, are all causing increasing numbers of families to simply leave the island, and if that is not possible, to educate them in foreign schools.
