Singapore families spent $1.4B on extra tuition for their children in 2018…

Singapore’s education system has been recognised as one of the leading systems in the world. There have been recent reforms to reduce the stress that students experience. In spite of that, families spent $1.4B on extra tuition to give their children the extra edge. There is one final frontier that where action can be taken – teacher-to-student ratio. Currently, this stands at between 30-40 for most schools. It would be good to reduce this to ~20 so that every student can get the attention they need. Yet, this will not guarantee that families will not spend on tuition because everyone simply wants to Ensure that their children get that extra edge. If such a move is considered, it could increase costs significantly. Any views on this?
