dc.description.abstractThe 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.en_US
