I recall a class discussion on the Singapore education system years ago, when I was in school. While some classmates lamented how exam-oriented and stressful Singapore's education system was, I defended it, chirping that actually I enjoyed school, and thought the pace and level of study was fine.
I still recall my teacher's reaction. British tutor Keith Wiltshire had spent years teaching the Humanities class and was used to Singapore's ways. He turned to me, shook his head and said with a twinkly smile: "It's people like you who make the Singapore education system stressful for others."
