STUDENT: KAPLAN S’PORE IS A BLOODSUCKER EARNING OBSCENE PROFITS FROM ITS STUDENTS

Kaplan is a school that making huge profit from students. As a student myself, I don't see much student activities / programs unlike local universities & polytechnics. Ever since Kaplan is making so much money, they does not provide any bursaries / scholarships to students who did well or offer help to needy students. Sadly, they continue to increase school fees annually in their various courses. Students who fail their modules have to pay nearly S$2K to repeat a module. That's extremely costly! Many students might have failed many models, however, could Kaplan feel the pain that many low income students are going through to pay and pay to repeat the modules?

‘EDUCATED’ MAN TEACHES HIS DAUGHTER TO INSULT AND LOOK DOWN ON HAWKERS

Today when I was helping my parents to tend their business around 1930 hrs, this guy's daughter took my parent's stall utensils without seeking for permission and of course without purchases any food from us. Naturally my mother told the girl to return the utensils after returning, the girl cried and guess what did the guy said to her? "It's alright, I will cause trouble for this stall and tell NEA there were cockroaches in the stall" Another thing was that, he said it was fine if we report him as he isn't doing business like us. To me so what if he actually had more education compared to my parents? Does he thinks that my parent's can't understand english?

LIFE BEING AN EDUCATED MALAY MINORITY IN SINGAPORE

I am a local university student who happens to be Malay. When i was in school, my chinese cliques would often ask me if I'm truly Malay. This is because I've been consistently on the Deans list and this to them is pretty unheard of. During a taxi ride conversation once, I was met with absolute surprise when i mentioned about my desire to do a PhD upon graduation. The taxi driver asked me if I'm truly malay and whether my family would support this given that "most Malays like to marry young".

SCHOOL BULLYING CAN ONLY BE STOPPED WITH VIOLENCE?

When I was being bullied in secondary school, the bullying started with badmouthing and sometimes slaps to the back of my head. Now, at that point, with the slapping for example, I could have retaliated with a few slaps of my own. No biggie, right? Someone throws a slap, you return with a harder one and that's that.
