Abstract: 
The aim of this article is three-fold:
(i) to inquire into the circwnstances leading to
the study of Singaporean English literature
texts in secondary schools in Singapore
(ii) to consider literary, cultural and p olitical
issues that have arisen as a result of a
conscious decision on the part of schools
and the Ministry of Education to adopt the
texts for both non-examinable and
examinable study purposes, and (iii) to look at teacher attitudes in the use of
such texts.
The article initially focuses on a school which
first began the systematic study of the texts
followed by issues which have arisen. Oosing the
article is a survey of teacher attitudes. Teacher
attitudes are probably crucial to what is really
an important educational-cultural exp eriment
being conducted in Singapore.
