Came across some good articles I’ll like to share on the Yale-Singapore controversy. If you have been away, I am happy to introduce you to the Yale-NUS College. Yale, together with NUS, has set up a liberal arts college in Singapore. The contention by some in Yale is that there is no academic freedom in Singapore, thus stifling the possibilities of a vibrant academic culture.
