The National Curriculum
A Critical Review

  • A V Kelly - Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK


May 1990 | 148 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Anyone looking for a clear account of several of the arguments against The National Curriculum would find Vic Kelly's The National Curriculum just such a book' - Ted Wragg

'This book represents the most sustained critique of The National Curriculum I have seen' - British Journal of Curriculum and Assessment

A National Curriculum is now being taught in all maintained schools and an associated programme for the testing of all pupils at key stages of The National Curriculum is in place. The full impact of this new curriculum and other associated changes will not be known until the full programme has been completed in the year 2000. A V Kelly evaluates such issues as its underlying assumptions, its basic value system, its conceptual structure and the degree to which it reflects (or not) understandings of the educational process gleaned from earlier research studies.
