Title: Curriculum implementation in early primary schooling in Singapore
Authors: Silver, Rita
Issue Date: 2011
Series/Report no.: Research Brief;11-004
Abstract: This one-year project was an investigation into the ongoing implementation of recent policy initiatives that influence pedagogy, curriculum innovation and instructional practices in Singapore. The investigation covered Primary 1 and 2 core subjects: English, Mother Tongue and Mathematics. It included the investigation of local conditions which impact the work of policy developers and implementers. The goal was to develop a more complete understanding of the specific, local challenges and processes for top–down policymaking. The findings show that in some ways Singapore is quite successful in terms of top–down policies. However, there seems to be less success with bottom–up innovation. School administrators and those teachers who are designated with responsibility for disseminating and implementing a specific policy are crucial actors in policy implementation and innovation processes.
Description: This brief was based on the project OER 47/08 MS: Curriculum Implementation in Early Primary Schooling in Singapore (CIEPSS) - Stage 1.
