Abstract: 
In this chapter, we propose a hypothesis that “leadership from the middle” (LftM) facilitates the change process of the Singapore education system to stay relevant to current trends and needs while maintaining a balance between old performative (teaching to the test) and new inquiry- based, student-centred pedagogies. LftM provides a context that will help the reader to appreciate how coherent alignments can be made across the multiple layers within the system, and where school leaders, teacher leaders and champions of Curricular Innovations (CIs) take the lead from such a middle.
