Singapore Educational System as Synthesis of τέχνη, humanities and social sciences
MetadataShow full item record
Singapore's education system is one of those that was ranked at top educational statistics in a relative-ly short time, thus becoming a model for other economies, that also base their strength on knowledge and new technologies. However, the uniqueness of this education system is not only in focusing on new technologies, but also in large investments in knowledge and human skills, creating new methods of education, combined with a philosophy that expresses the essence of Singapore's culture and forms of its organisation. This is mainly illustrated by the history of this education system and the current changes, that we can observe in recent years. The presented education system and the achievements it has reached in international measurement of learning outcomes such as TIMSS, PIRLS, and PISA indicate that the development of new technologies does not have to entail a rejection of the humanities and social sciences. Moreover, the ongoing change in the economy in the global space means, that tests and statistics are no longer a true measure of achieving educational success.
