1-YEAR PRIVATE DEGREES PROGRAMMES LACK QUALITY?

Therefore, I find it hard to comprehend what can be achieved from private degree programmes that can be completed in as short as a year. Even a junior college education, which prepares students for university, needs two years. A polytechnic education takes three years.

IS JOSEPHINE TEO REALLY UP TO MARK?

As the Minister of State, Josephine Teo would presumably be one of the key figures of PAP’s next leadership team. Yet, her many public policy statements give us pause for thought and make us wonder if she is up to the mark.

However his job was a tour guide in China and ICA valued him so much as a rare Foreign Talent. He went on to cheat a rich 87-year widow of $40 million of her assets. Imagine the stupidity of ICA, a graduate from an Ivy Leage University whose occupation was a tour guide. Clearly something is wrong, his qualification got to be a fake.
