Dr Kelvin Seah Kah Cheng, Lecturer from the Dept of Economics at NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences opined that even though reducing class size may improve student learning, it does not mean that Singapore should necessarily go ahead with it. He added that reducing class size comes at a substantial cost as more teachers need to be hired and more classrooms need to be built if schools are already functioning at full capacity.
