Singapore has mandated that the country’s wealthiest one percent of inhabitants will be required to undergo Primary One Good Citizen education syllabus.

This after the island-state experienced a spate of anti-social behaviour perpetuated by the rich, with the recent Anton Casey case making universal headlines.

Classes will run for a year with two one-hour lessons a week.

There will be two exams for each semester. The passing rate is 90 marks, as Singaporeans have all along been overachievers resulting in a skewed bell curve and a higher grade to pass.

Hao Gong Ming, a local said: “I think having a primary one syllabus is a good start, as we try not to set the level too high as it will already be a hurdle for some.”
