Overview

British post-16 education in the mid to late 1990s has been dominated by a New Right agenda and its search for the teacher and student-proof curriculum, for the political accountability and for uniformity of 'outcome'. This book highlights inadequacies in that thinking. It points to the serious shortcomings of 'top-down' prescription and proposes a very different approach to curriculum reform. It celebrates agency, professionalism and diversity in educational practice and acknowledges the essential contributions of teachers and students to the making of knowledge, learning opportunities and curricula. It offers a critical examination of a number of centrally important questions in a manner suited to informing debate among professionals, politicians and academics at all levels.
