The Ministry of Education (MOE) has announced today that it will revise school fees for Singapore Permanent Residents (PRs) and international students (IS) in Government and Government-aided schools from January 2016. MOE says that this is part of a "periodic review of school fees" to "further differentiate fees by citizenship".
Fees will increase by S$20 to S$60 per month for PR students and by S$20 to S$150 per month for international students. Singapore Citizens will not see any changes to their school fees.
A reader points out the hypocrisy of Vivian Balakrishnan's statement that "it is the height of national shame for the armed forces of any country to turn its arms against its own people."
