In response to Sec 3 Social Studies Guide

I looked up the meaning of Socioeconomic and found this.


Socioeconomic status (SES) is an economic and sociological combined total measure of a person’s work experience and of an individual’s or family’s economic and social position in relation to others, based on income, education, and occupation.


The recent article from “Mothership” carries some weight that made me and many others (I think) not very the happy

I will look forwards to hear from MOE (pattern more than badminton) what they will be saying about it and pretty sure lah – they have their story to sir-port one.

Speak Singlish, playing in HDB estate = Low Socio-Economic Status

Than hor I got super under low socio-economic status because I am Singlish author + I still play in HDB estate with my children some more. How huh?

Even the book is written in the 90’s it should be explained to us – why should there be “teaching” to the young minds – how to be judge?

I will love a creative nation that love each other as themselves and not compare what you speak and where you play that says about your socio-economic status.

You huh Rowan Luc, study so much but kenot write social books – no status lah. Better Say Sorry – and Change the text book!!
