Then, successfully, characteristics of slow learners are reviewed and re-stated in a way relevant to their education; research on the post-school experience of slow learners is summarized and related to the curriculum; and general curriculum literature is reviewed in presenting a plan for the continuous development of curricula for slow learners, consistent with the modern approach to curriculum development.
