The Practical Curriculum

This Schools Council working paper, from 1981, looks at curriculum balance and content and issues of curriculum planning. Written before the introduction of the National Curriculum, the paper argues for a visible structure for the school curriculum, explaining why it is needed, suggesting measures for planning and monitoring, and looking at how to assess a school's success. It was argued that agreeing the principles of the curriculum would allow all children the same rights and opportunities, experiences and knowledge, leading to greater social cohesion and guaranteeing an effective curriculum for each child.
