Mr Lee Kuan Yew and his educational legacy were discussed at a symposium at the Redesigning Pedagogy International Conference 2017. Not one to rest on his laurels, Mr Lee always encouraged learning to be a lifelong pursuit. This symposium celebrates the man and his vision for education legacy that was enacted and developed in Singapore’s education system. Two book co-editors and three chapter authors spoke, and the session was moderated by Ms Liew Wei Li (Deputy Director-General of Education (Schools) and Director of Schools, MOE). Ms Liew found Mr Lee’s voice still relevant today and mentioned how the voice has a lasting legacy. She ended the symposium by encouraging the conference participants to find their individual voices, to let their voice make a positive difference and to have a lasting legacy that can help the nation – just as Mr Lee’s voice has. The symposium was well received by participants.
