Citation: Ho, W. K. (1994, November). The centre-periphery paradigm and indigenisation in education. Paper presented at the Eightieth Annual Conference of the Educational Research Association, Singapore.
Abstract: This paper explains the meaning of paradigms and how they have dominated our way of looking at social phenomena. The paper will then draw attention to what has been called the centre-periphery paradigm in development education and discuss the relevance of this paradigm to education in Singapore today in the light of the cross-cultural perspective and the indigenization process taking place. The move from dependence on Western models to a cross-cultural perspective and indigenization will be further illustrated in education with special reference to the process of curriculum planning and development and language education in Singapore.
