TOPIC: The limited access to schools in Singapore among poorer foreign students. The access to education in Singapore becomes increasingly difficult for comparatively poorer foreign students. REASONS FOR THE PROBLEM

Due to the excessive foreign students entering Singapore, the government raised the school fees for foreigners to place financial pressure on them, those who cannot afford will leave and the rich will stay. DIAGRAMS BELOW SERVING AS EVIDENCE FOR THE INCREASE IN SCHOOL FEES [pic](FIG1.1)[pic](FIG 1.2)

School fees doubled from 2008 to 2013, from $550 to $1027. While locals enjoy $ $13.50 each month(From MOE official website).

IMPACT

(FIG 1.3 Showing declining Old age support ratio)

SOLUTION
Only scholarships are given to foreigners get it.

It is difficult to make change for immigration policies such as giving PR to help foreigners as it will affect the population of Singapore. Hence I would focus on preventing current dilemma to happen in future.

I suggest making use of companies’ overseas branches and investments in developing countries to establish schools operate by Singapore teachers and open to both Singaporeans and locals of hosting city.

General plan:

REASONS
To find alternatives for foreigners to engage in Singapore style education so that their education is not affected by financial issues.

FEASIBILITY
Students enjoy high quality education, while Singapore gains skilled labor to increase its economy’s capacity.

My plan may be vague and students may not work for Singapore...
