On 16 June 2013, an article from The Sunday Times mentioned about Prof Linda Darling-Hammond who was in Singapore for the C J Koh Professional Lecture organised by the National Institute of Education. She welcomed the move for MOE to run its own kindergartens to raise the quality of pre-school education in Singapore and make it affordable to children from disadvantaged homes. Prof Lee Wing On from OER agreed and commented that Singapore was heading in the right direction in raising the quality of education and providing opportunities for students who are slow learners. 

In a second report, Prof Linda Darling-Hammond highlighted the shortcomings of the PSLE.
