Abstract: This article critically examines sense-making processes of key stakeholders of Singapore's education: historically dominant city-state, highly-qualified teachers and high-performing students. The article interrogates the Teaching Schools Learning Nation (TSLN) policy initiative deployed towards achieving a Knowledge-Based Economy (KBE). The article uses micropolitics in exploring issues stakeholders face in the midst of globalization. Findings from research at the Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice (CRPP) at the National Institute of Education (NIE) are used to support key arguments. In exploring sense-making processes, the article uncovers paradoxical interpretational responses of stakeholders implementing TSLN providing a critique of the city-state's KBE ambitions.
