Alarmed by rise in number of deaths, Indonesia is building a US$1.2-million school on the nearby island of Batam for its domestic workers before allowing them to work in Singapore homes.
In classrooms resembling a typical Singapore apartment, young women will hang laundry from bamboo poles stretching from make-believe high-rise windows or learn how to bathe babies. They will take tests on at least 600 English words.
