Singapore has performed spectacularly well in international rankings of education systems such as PISA and TIMMS. Its students have also triumphed in international competitions in creativity, literature and law. But the philosophy driving these remarkable successes has wrought a great cost to children and parents. Tan Tarn How will argue for a major re-orientation in the way Singapore runs its schools, so as to establish a more rounded and humanity-based measure of educational achievement.
