K2 students made to do activities praising S R Nathan's achievements-brainwashing from young?

By Vincent Cheong

I do not understand why our K2 students have to be forced to give thanks to ex-President S R Nathan. Why is it necessary to create activity sheets for young impressionable kids to commemorate his achievements? This was shared by a parent online, whose child attends an MOE kindergarten.

Can the education ministry give our children a break and stop trying to brainwash them from young? S R Nathan did some good things, but did you know, while the patriots of Singapore died in defense of Singapore, S R Nathan turned his back on Singaporeans and worked as a translator for the Japanese during the Occupation in WWII.

If you want to make an activity sheet, give a balance of opinions, do not simply just toot his nice looking achievements; also include his ugly past. Be fair and stop trying to spread such government propaganda to our young. They deserve the whole truth, not half truths like these.
