National Curriculum: National Disaster?
Education and Citizenship
National Curriculum: National Disaster? looks beyond the classroom and discusses the way in which the infrastructure of school codes of conduct, the physical environment of school sites and the hierarchy of human resources within schools impact on the aims and reality of the National Curriculum. An alternative skills-based educational programme is also outlined which may be more likely to fulfil the expectations that many parents now hold for the education of their children.
