Are Schools Good Enough For Our Students? I Big Brain Energy EP 3 | Chan Soon Seng

What do you remember the most about schools? For many Malaysians, it was memorising textbooks days before exams, getting punished for not finishing homework and squeezing in tuition classes after long school hours.

Our education system is far from perfect, with severely exhausted teachers and stressed out students remaining as constant fixtures.

In the final episode of Big Brain Energy, CEO of Teach For Malaysia, Chan Soon Seng, sheds light on the flaws in the system and shares how change is within reach. Watch the full discussion and find out from the Merdeka Award Trust Secretariat on how you can apply for a fully sponsored 3-month attachment at a renowned international institution, thanks to the Merdeka Award Trust.

Presented in collaboration with the Merdeka Award Trust. Click here to learn more about their ongoing International Attachment programme!
