Dear brothers and sisters RI Head master really is an asshole and never give face to PAP. He is insulting our beloved PAP party during SG50. He must be hanged!!! Raffles Institution now a ‘middle-class’ school, says principal Raffles Institution (RI) is a "middle- class" school that now largely caters to the affluent segment of the population. These harsh words came from the school's own principal, Mr Chan Poh Meng, in a speech delivered in front of hundreds of current and former RI staff and students. "Our system of meritocracy is working less well than it used to, two generations in," he said. Wealthier families have been able to give their children an edge through tuition and enrichment, leading to exams such as the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) no longer being "the level playing field that they once were", he added.
