Singapore Chronicles is a series launched in conjunction with the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore, by providing analysis as well as historical accounts on a variety of uniquely Singaporean topics.
'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.
