Depoliticize kindergartens run by PAP Community Foundation
Posted by temasektimes on October 17, 2012
Dear Minister Wong,
I read in the ST yesterday that you are the chairman of the PAP Community Foundation (PCF), which is Singapore’s largest pre-school operator running 330 kindergartens and child-care centres.
It struck me as strange that we have so many pre-schools affiliated to a political party.
It is akin to there being Labour Party kindergartens in the UK or Republican Party kindergartens in the US. Regardless of the history of the PCF, should we not remove any political affiliation it has?
Call it the SINGAPORE Community Foundation instead, and have it funded and run on a non partisan basis.
