Special Education in Singapore: A Different Perspective from KU-CRL on Vimeo.


In the fall, Ed Meyen and Diana Greer spent a week visiting special education schools in Singapore. The differences between the education systems in Singapore and the United States provided much food for thought. In this presentation, Meyen and Greer will discuss KU’s connection to the Singapore schools, Singapore’s instructional environment, philosophical differences between the two countries when it comes to education, outcomes—and surprising outcomes—for Singapore students, and the collaborative research process that ties together educators and researchers at KU and in Singapore.
