Explaining the Success of the World's Leading Education Systems: The Case of Singapore
Dimmock, Clive; Tan, Cheng Yong
British Journal of Educational Studies, v64 n2 p161-184 2016
International comparative data on student performance has led McKinsey&Company, among others, to suggest that education systems will inexorably converge in their developmental trajectories with principals and schools enjoying more autonomy. This article challenges these assumptions through referencing Singapore where schools and professionals are still tightly controlled in key resources, curricula and assessment, and where other key factors contribute to its success--thereby evidencing multiple pathways to success.
