Parents should allow their kids to follow their hearts and not their brains
By Heng Cho Choon
I WAS attracted to the Review article, 'Einstein: The patron saint of distracted schoolkids' (ST, April 13), in which the writer advocated the importance of imagination and creativity.
I read this nice and succinct letter to the online forum page by Mr. Heng.
It more or less encapsulates what I feel about education and Singapore life.
I have already ranted about this topic before, so I will just spare you guys the agony this once.
But not before quoting Mark Twain:
"I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."
