Chee Soon Juan Points Out Top Schools Are In Bukit Timah, Says This Causes Widening Income Gap

Dr Chee was the first to talk, and he immediately addressed Dr Balakrishnan, pointing out that they came from the same school - Anglo-Chinese School.

Said Dr Chee, the Government has amassed all the top schools in the Bukit Timah area.

Dr Chee says, the problem comes when the neighbourhood schools are placed outside of the choicest districts.

The question then is, how can we bridge this widening gap that has emerged, thanks in part to where top schools are located?

If a student has the same chances of succeeding if they go to a neighbourhood school as they do for an elite school, then maybe then we've succeeded in bridging the social and income gap in Singapore.
