Fourth Way in Action: Teacher Education in Singapore
Tan, Oon Seng
Educational Research for Policy and Practice, v11 n1 p35-41 Feb 2012
Policy makers are often looking for solutions to develop their educational systems in today's highly competitive knowledge-based economy. Hargreaves and Shirley's Fourth Way provides a useful approach in analysing policy trends, successes and pitfalls, based on an observation of practices and research evidences in the west, particularly, the USA and the UK. This article discusses and illustrates how teacher education in Singapore reflects the Fourth Way in action.
