Singapore Chronicles: Education

PART OF Singapore Chronicles SERIES
Publisher: Straits Times Press
  • Description
  • About the Series
  • Singapore Chronicles: Education examines the key imperatives and principles that drove policy formulation, the success and failures of policy implementation, and how the state, at various times, fashioned education to meet its imperatives.

    Singapore has been hailed as a great success in educating its citizens. Now, an educated citizenry seeks to influence, if not change, the nature of the state, the state’s compact with its citizens, and the role that education must play in the future. Against that background, this book examines the impact of education in Singapore’s transformation by studying the social, political and economic contexts within which policy and practice are embedded.

  • To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press jointly launched the Singapore Chronicles series in 2015.

    This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. Covering a wide range of subjects, from the philosophical to the mundane, the fundamental to the practical, these Singapore Chronicles titles include Constitution, Presidency, Housing, Transport, Demography, CPF, Sports and Food. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject.

    Written by leading experts, they will focus on key aspects of the subject, providing analysis as well as a historical account. Readers will gain an insight into what makes Singapore tick and also why it has chosen certain “paths un-trodden”.
