Singapore & Finland Model: Higher Matriculation Requirement Will Lead to Better Education System

If Jamaica wants a better education system then it has to come to terms with the fact that it will need to attract higher qualified students into the teaching industry. 
In Singapore and Finland they were able to achieve a higher quality education system because the students who were recruited for teacher training institutes/universities are of the same standard/quality as those being recruited to study medicine.
Singapore and Finland found that their respective teacher performances showed a direct correlation with the matriculation requirements to teacher training institutes/universities.  In other words the higher the matriculation requirement, the higher the performance of the teachers.
