Abstract: 
As the first chapter of this book, we share some background information about Singapore and Singaporean education to provide the necessary context to understand the subsequent chapters in this book. We also share the kind of education that we think that Singapore should provide for its citizens to meet the challenges ahead and an overview of the role played by educational leadership in Singapore to bring about the required changes that led to the educational innovations described in the subsequent chapters. We hope that readers who are not familiar with Singapore will find a good overview of Singapore and Singaporean education in this chapter. However, for readers who are already familiar with Singapore, we recommend that they should skip these two sections and proceed to the section on “Preparing for the Future”. In this book, we share about how to prepare learners for the future and will focus on the role played by school leadership in preparing these learners for the desired future.
