Streaming Exercise Book (Set of 3)
This set of 3 exercise books highlight the meritocratic principle in the Singapore education system. Although the principle was aimed at identifying and grooming talent for positions of leadership, it has led to a systemic categorising of students into various classes with varying curriculum and expectations. This manifests socially as an emphasis on academic performance and admission to prestigious institutions, giving rise to the notion of elitism.
Streaming Exercise Books exemplifies the aspirations of the three classes of students in our local education system and its perceived impact it has on one’s success in life.
