According to the Masterplan for Information Technology (IT) in Education, all 356 schools in Singapore will conduct 30 per cent of the lessons using IT by the year 2002. There will be a 2:1 pupil to computer ratio in schools. By the year 2000, about 24,000 teachers will have undergone 30-50 hours of training in the use of IT for teaching and learning in three phases. Towards this end, the Ministry of Education will spend $2 billion dollars to implement the IT Masterplan. Although there has been an economic downturn this year, the education budget has not been cut.
