Using humor as a tool, Kirk seeks to make readers think about the relationship between business and education or - learning and "real life". She combines the features of a dictionary, with its alphabetically arranged entries, and an interconnected series of essays. Adept at getting her message across, she uses illustrations to provide mental resting places that invite readers to pause and reflect. At the end of each section, she provides interlocking and recurring questions to emphasize links and advance the lines of thought. Kirk assumes there is no one way to learn. She provides both abstract and concrete as well as detached and personal approaches to such issues as diversity, competitiveness and cooperation, performance appraisal and measurement, fragmentation and integration, and the relationship of learning, working, and living. Her book can be read on a variety of levels, either piecemeal or continuously. She encourages readers to self-design their own learning, whether as individuals or as members of a discussion group using the book as their base.

This text offers descriptions and analyses of some of the different ways in which schools and other educational institutions have started to establish new collaborative relationships in today's competitive educational marketplace. Using case studies, the book describes examples of such collaborative structures.; Educational consortia have been established as a vehicle for professional and curriculum development, as a source of mutual support and as a condition of mutual survival. As the "LEA monopolies" have been forced to shed many of their traditional functions or schools have opted out, schools have found it necessary to re-create parts of their collaborative structures out of sheer self- Interest.; For Some Educators Who Continue To Be Attached To Notions Of "an educational service" and professional collegiality in the provision of such a service, inter-institutional collaboration becomes seen as something to be valued independently of the instrumental benefits which it provides. For this variety of reasons, consortium working and collaborative structures seem set to develop in spite of, or as a necessary antodote to, educational markets. Understanding the role and operation of such structures is a necessity for educational managers in all parts of the educational service.

In Asia, we are witnessing an era where the pendulum of power seems to be swaying towards the East with the rising strength of China and India and Singapore is at the 'crossroads' between these populous nations. Although Singapore may appear to be the most westernized country in Asia, she is nevertheless a multi-cultural Asian society. Having the most open economy in the world, Singapore is plugged into the global marketplace of education and learning. The development of human capital is used as a strategic economic driver to internationalize and transform education for sustainable competitive advantage. Singapore's education system, regarded as one of the consistently best performing in the world, offers a unique opportunity to explore issues where eastern and western culture, values, beliefs, learning and knowledge systems converge, clash, and at times diverge. This book is meant to extend our knowledge on the role of ‘learning’, often overlooked and taken for granted as the air that we breathe but which constantly transforms our lives and reshapes societies. It is the first book that deals with the dichotomy of ‘east’ and ‘west’ going beyond the traditional learning and education framework to other areas such as economic, socio-cultural, political, and technological dimensions that impact Singapore. It puts together key topical issues and explores the underbelly of how a small 'resourceless' independent city-state like Singapore stays ahead of the learning curve, even while facing increasingly intense global competition where the discovery and emergence of new systems for empowerment and independence and the resulting creation of new knowledge and modes of communication are challenging traditional boundaries between the virtual and real world.

This is an important book that should be read widely.” Carsten Kowalczyk Associate Professor of International Economics The Fletcher School Tufts University “Prem provides a good overview of the evolution, issues and trends in Singapore education. He nudges us to ponder whether education should be left to market forces and whether we should make changes to better prepare us for the future.” Tsui Kai Chong Provost and Professor SIM University Key Features:New and original edition on educational and learning that puts together topical issues as seen from both the East and West perspectives in the context of SingaporeServes as a reference in understanding the why, what and how educational policies and practice converge
