Report and Recommendations for Education Policy Leaders


A new report from the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the Pearson Foundation identifies key factors in Singapore's success in teaching science and mathematics and recommends that educators around the world extend and develop these practices in their school systems.

Report and Recommendations for Education Policy Leaders documents the conclusions from the International Conference on Science and Mathematics Education, held April 28-May 1 in Singapore. This conference, created and presented by CCSSO and the Pearson Foundation, convened delegates from 13 countries and six continents to explore firsthand the educational and cultural drivers that consistently help Singapore students to score at the top of international surveys such as the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).

The report cites specifically Singapore's country-wide investment in teachers; the development of their administrative leadership; and the educational system's adoption of innovative core curriculum designed to foster students' creativity and independent thinking.
