From the Paper:

"Generally, extensive rates of immigration increase the costs of education within any given country (Brimelow, 2005). This is also true in Singapore, where the expenditure associated with educational programs and institutions has increased as a direct result of growing numbers of students. The fact that the federal government has to allocate larger amounts of financial resources for the education of the native born and the immigrants could soon translate into increased financial pressure. Otherwise put, due to the larger fares with education, the national authorities could increase the taxes perceived from the population, which would negatively impact the population's living standards."
