JC STUDENTS CHAMPION SMALLER CLASS SIZE

For their JC 1 Project Work, a group of Pioneer Junior College students have come up with a creative and innovative way to achieve smaller class size in schools. Noticing that their school hall is used only sparingly, usually for the school assembly, and is empty most of the day, they suggested that the hall be partitioned into separate units of small classrooms with movable structures that can also block off noise. To overcome the cost and difficulty of recruiting more teachers that are needed, they urged greater use of new social media such as Facebook and Twitter to promote teaching as a career.
The students discussed their proposals with Michelle Lee and me on Wednesday 22 June 2011. They were attracted by our $60 billion National Regeneration Plan (described in New_Singapore_Economy_-_summary_extract_15_Feb_2011) which spells out, among many other proposals, why we should and how we could halve the current class size in schools. The students were concerned that shortage of land and building costs could hold back our plans.
