Hwa Chong Institution has advised its students to refrain from commenting on the 2020 General Elections of Singapore either its school-based platforms or on their personal social media accounts, framing it as a 'disciplinary' issue or a 'behaviour' to correct. This is damaging to both the students' development as politically involved citizens and the purpose of fostering ecosystem of critical thinking within educational institutions. The school insinuates corrective action against such deviant behavior by characterizing it as a disciplinary issue, this encroaches on the students' right to get involved. See Kristen Han Post 

Hwa Chong has had a pivotal role in Singapore's political history continues to be a bedrock to the political landscape of Singapore. Like many schools, it is also a reservoir for talent and future leaders in industry and government - the school's misguided approach only serves to handicap these students and spread political apathy. Singapore's education institutions need to teach students to navigate the political landscape, and not handicap their ability to do so.

It would serve Singapore and the students best to withdraw such advice. Hwa Chong's alumni cannot stand for this.
