Stop tuition centres from claiming credit for students' grades


TUITION centres should not be allowed to claim credit for the good grades achieved by their students ("PSLE scores: Many tuition centres adopt MOE approach"; last Friday).

While it is not a crime for them to do so, the practice has to stop because it goes against the fundamental belief that mainstream teachers in school are the main contributors towards the education of students.
