One of the key problems with streaming is that it affects self-efficacy.

Research has shown that self-efficacy – the belief in one’s ability to learn or accomplish a task at a desired level, is a key to being successful.

Self-efficacy also has a major influence on motivation, well-being and personal achievement.

To make the latest reform work, parents and educators have to therefore adopt the right mindset and appreciate that children have their own unique passions, talents and aspirations.

Help them expand their potential, and develop the joy of lifelong learning and the passion for developing the ability to learn how to learn.

Equip them so that they can develop their own pathways to pursue different peaks of excellence throughout their lives.

Parents and educators have to be more sensitive to helping slow learners overcome their learning challenges, and ensure that none of them will be left behind.

Let’s be mindful that the overarching purpose of education is to raise children to become a moral, wise, and productive person.

A useful person who can contribute to strengthening workplaces, communities, and economy.

Address social injustice, and live a meaningful, productive and fulfilling life.
