which brings me to a question... not all students study and settle in the same country for years. suppose someone studied in singapore at secondary and pre u level and country B at tertiary level, then proceeded to work at country C, technically were thay "drained" to singapore, country b or C?
I think that would be... drained to country C
, because it'll be country C who gets the benefit of their productivity and etc. Well, if our beloved country decides to be more fair and offer quality education opportunities based on merit and not on keturunan, then only can the 'brain drain' be snubbed out effectively.
But until then, it's over the seas for the 'ACCESS DENIED' victims.
