Scout mindset or soldier mindset

Not long ago I heard a TED talk by Julia Galef on why scout mindset is crucial to good judgment.
I believe that both mentalities are important. I used the scout mentality to gather firsthand information from my students on why they were unable to read in English but were able to read in Malay and Hanyu Pinyin.

Ministry of Education of Singapore and Malaysia

                                Molding the future of our nation? What future?         
I wrote to our Malaysian Minister of Education and his deputy several times. 

AND then I wrote to both of them again together with their team members. I have yet to receive a response from them.

I wrote to MOE Singapore and immediately received a response from them.

Therein lies the difference between our MOE and that of Singapore.

My students – the common factor

My only student whom I taught for 5 years from primary one to primary six ( only 5 years because he was promoted from halfway in primary four to primary 5) is my first student.

All my others students were taught only for a short period.
