PSLE review's Rorschach test


A REVIEW of the Primary School Leaving Examination is long overdue ("PSLE not the be-all and end-all: PM"; last Saturday).

A very simple question we should ask ourselves is: What are our memories of our childhood?

For me, it was playing football, marbles and the mischievous things we did as boys.

Unfortunately, children today will remember their childhood only as one filled with extra lessons in school and tuition.
