S’pore’s wealthiest 1 percent to undergo Pri 1 Good Citizen syllabus

Posted on 26 February 2014

This is to deter future Anton Caseys from happening.


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.”
