By in

Last week the Singapore Ministry of Education announced that 28 schools will be merged by 2019, in the latest response to the decreasing number of students. A decision that has been painful but necessary the Minister of Education, Mr Ng Chee Meng has regretfully stated. The Minister added that he personally suffered over the decision to merge the schools and had explored different possibilities; a matter which was not taken lightly and is sure it is for the better for our students to come.
