“That’s the way the world is. If I have explain this, I think I will lose votes after I explain the awful truth. Nobody believe it, but slowly it will dawn on them, especially the graduates, yes. You marry a non-graduate, then you are going to worry if your son or daughter is going to make it to university.”

– Lee Kuan Yew speaking at Human Capital Summit, 24 October 2008

Your honour, both my parents are non-graduates – my dad has a diploma whereas my mom doesn’t. Yours truly is majoring in political fucking science in NUS, so there you have it.
