Abstract: In 2016, the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) conducted a Survey on Parental Perceptions of Education with 1,500 citizen and PR parents to obtain a quantitative picture of sentiments towards Singapore’s primary school system. The respondents’ demographics mirrored the general population except for the gender ratio; it was asked that the parent predominantly responsible for making decisions relating to primary school education to complete the survey, and more women were represented. Broadly, the results indicate that the vast majority of Singaporean parents are generally pleased with the local education system’s structure, processes and outcomes.
