  • 3. The Story of Singapore Math Improving Low Achievement
  • 4. High Achievement Was Not a Given “Upon separation from Malaysia in 1965, Singapore was faced with … high levels of unemployment and poverty. 70% of Singapore’s households lived in badly overcrowded conditions, and a third of its people squatted in slums on the city fringes. Unemployment averaged 14%, GDP per capita was less than $2,700, and half of the population was illiterate.”
