As Per OECD, Singapores Education System Is High

09 Dec 2010


Singapore's education system got a thumbs-up after an international study conducted under the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) was released on Tuesday by the Education Ministry. Singapore students fared very well.

Singapore students have ranked fifth in Reading, second in Mathematics and fourth in Science. In Reading, Singapore students performed better than those from native English-speaking countries like Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom. In addition, Singapore had the third highest proportion (15.7%) of top performers in Reading, after Shanghai and New Zealand. Out of 65 countries and economies that took part in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2009, Singapore also had the second highest proportion (12.3%) of students who are top performers1 in all three domains.

PISA assesses the extent to which 15-year-old students near the end of secondary education are able to analyse, reason and apply their knowledge and skills in unfamiliar settings so as to meet real-life challenges.

The ministry said Singapore's good performance at PISA 2009 showed that beyond a strong grasp of knowledge, the students had the ability to think critically and solve real-life problems - skills that are valued in society and at the workplace.

The findings affirm that Singapore has high-quality principals and teachers and the approach in Singapore schools is in the right direction leading to a bright future in work and life.

OECD also noted that there is a strong link between education and economic development, as well as between policy and implementation in Singapore.
