    A hotshot read it was.“If you don't know history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree. ” ― Michael Crichton A pedantic book for those who want to stare closely into the history.I read few chapters of it and realized that I've a limited knowledge about the situation in Singapore about Chinese Education and I'm sure many other would share the same thought with me. Right from there, I was motivated to read everything about it before I read furth [...]

    A book that would inspire generations. An informative book it was! Never would have I read anything in my life about the education system in China, had it not been for this one.I thank the author for writing such books that presents before us a combination of past events and hope for a better future.I didn't know about the situation of Chinese Education in Singapore so I first google about it and then started to read. It is a non-fiction book that concerns about how languages and culture evolved [...]

    Chinese Education in Singapore: An Untold Story of Conflict and Change, is an unbiased view of Singapore's history. Singapore's story offers lessons for modern cities as many seek to build vibrant economies and achieve a high quality of living. It is interesting but not confusing. Writing is tight and very readable. Author clearly knows and enjoys his subject. This is a must read for those interested in the subject.

    What I know about Singapore1. It was once under British rule2. It isn't part of China3. Romesh Ranganathan's family comes from there. (Turns out I knew less than I thought, Romesh comes from Sri Lankawhoops)And that's it. I work at a school so was interested to read about the education system in Singapore.The book has been really well researched, some of the information must have been incredibly hard to gather. The amount of info thrown at you in the first couple of chapters is a bit overwhelmin [...]

    I was prepared to open the book and immediately read about Chinese Education in Singapore. I work at a Chinese university in Indonesia and one of my lecturer colleagues is from Singapore, so I was looking forward to a pleasant read that would further social discussion with my expatriate colleague. This book will do that, but not in the way I expected.The first chapter is devoted to a detailed discussion of the history of clans in China, their names (which have different pronunciations in differe [...]

    In 'Chinese Education in Singapore', Zhang gives an unvarnished portrayal of the struggles that the Chinese in Singapore had in maintaining a Chinese education system while under British colonial power and then as an independent country. The ethnic mix throughout Malaysia and Singapore provides a fascinating backdrop in which to create an education system. Each ethnic group fought for their own people's language and traditions, against each other and against the colonial power that sought to imp [...]

    I agree with the author that there has been more than enough written from the non-Chinese and non-Singaporean point of view. I see this as a doctoral thesis in a university in which English is it's 3rd or 4th language, yet it is very easy to comprehend. It is also NOT BORING. Immigrants to Singapore have not always been voluntary, and the mixing of different dialects has been a real trial to the people. Educating such a mix has been a very difficult task.I do wish that this could be made into an [...]

    A very easy read. It was well-written and easy to follow. I thought it would be a dull educational-type book but much to my surprise it was very entertaining from all the way through.I highly recommend this book.

    *Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*In dire need of an editor. The writing is choppy, and feels like an out-of-control General Paper essay written in an attempt to get all the facts out within the 90 minute time limit. Urgh. Whatever learning I had was overshadowed by the difficulty of attempting to follow a threadbare narrative.(Don't take my review personally.)___Since education in English was the avenue to "sweatless livelihood", it had to be limi [...]

    Although I'm Asian, I don't know much about Singapore, so this book educated me a lot. At the same time, it was a bit hard to understand the contents because of my lack of knowledge. I knew English and Chinese are spoken in Singapore, so I could imagine England and China would play an important role in this book. However, embarrassingly, I didn't know that my country, Japan, was involved in the history of Singapore.Chinese words are written with alphabets, so I thought it made the book harder to [...]

    This book is somewhat good. The historical events that occur in this book was very impressive.

    The book shows in detail the history and cultures affecting life and education in detail, including maps and statistics. I hadn't realized Singapore endured so many changes over time.

    Just a suggestion when you do a chronological order it should be from earliest to latest. This makes for some repetition in different categories that could be eliminated.Washington DC always gripes about how we lag behind in education compared to other countries. It’s not Rocket Science, no MIT stuff there. History was my undergrad, to this day I can’t get enough. It is really hard to find stuff about Asian culture. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could set education standards like the country y [...]

    I received this book from Member Giveaway Group for honest review. Thank you very much.The book is a short version history of Singapore and the Chinese language education in schools. The book also gives a short dedication to Chinese used outside SG and the information jums in pretty good details. I am interested in languages so I found the information interesting. Author has done a great research for writing the book and knowing quite a lot about Singapore's history, I did enjoy to read history [...]

    I really wanted to like this book. I was excited to read it and learn more about Singapore, and the subtitle of this book made the story sound exciting, engaging, and even a little dangerous. The blurb on the back of the book is well-written, making me eager to dive into the book. Sadly, the back cover is the best-written part of the book. It isn't that this book is bad - Mr. Zhang writes well enough - it's just that it feels disjointed. I was overwhelmed by the first few chapters, amounting to [...]
