Students voice out on education issues at youth forum

Some 100 tertiary students gathered at a youth forum chaired by Senior Minister of State for Education Indranee Rajah and Dr Amy Khor, chairman of the Government's official feedback unit, REACH, on Wednesday evening.

The evening's theme was on Singapore's education landscape, and participants raised questions on a range of issues, including abolishing the Primary School Leaving Examination, social mixing, and levelling up for students from lower-income backgrounds.

Held at the National University of Singapore's University Town, the event was organised by REACH and the university's Students' Political Association.

The forum is part of the university's policy studies seminar and debate series. It is an annual initiative to encourage critical thinking on issues relevant to Singapore's society and its future direction.
