Do Raffles Boys "Rule" and Anglo-Chinese Boys "Own" Singapore? Analysing School-to-Work Correspondences in an Elite Developmental State
Chua, Vincent
International Studies in Sociology of Education, v25 n1 p1-19 2015
This paper utilises ideas of correspondence as a way of thinking about intersections between school and work in Singapore's developmental state. Whereas the principle of correspondence predicts segregated patterns of association between school and work, this paper shows how a developmentalist form of political economy gives rise to crosscutting, rather than segregated patterns of school-to-work correspondences among the elite. Although the correspondence principle treats education and economy as major elements, it fails to consider what is arguably a far more revolutionary force--namely the state, which ultimately frames and mediates the pathways elite students take from school to work.
