MOE & EduTrust to look closely at private schools

YESTERDAY IN PARLIAMENT: GOODBYE CASETRUST, HELLO EDUTRUST. Private schools to be monitored more closely. [Electric Paper] New certification will check schools' academic standards, protect students' fees. By Karen Wong. ENOUGH is enough. That seems to be the message from the Ministry of Education...Mr Lin Cheng Ton will head a new independent council to oversee private education in Singapore....

GIIS comes under "Foreign System Schools" (different from 'Private School'). Nevertheless, we welcome such quality-control moves by Singapore MOE.
