Reply to: The World Bank's shared history with Singapore
Thank you for the information Jordan. It is interesting to know that the World Bank capitalized DBS and helped finance NUS. With the rich experience on its side, I am sure the World Bank Group can play its part in recreating the success in other countries in the region. All the best!
Reply to: Gender in Thai schools: Do we grow up to be what we are taught?
I strongly agree with the proposed approach, however equal weightage should be given and exercised on reforming/coaching the people in general about the gender mindset. Children learn a vast curriculum at school, however with impressionable minds get easily influenced with what happens at home and in day to day life.
Helping the people change their mindset should also be done in parallel as an effort to foster unbiased attitude towards gender perception.
