In The Press

This interesting book provides those involved in curriculum development, enactment and evaluation with a useful overview and checklist of important themes that can support their work. These themes are informed by the author’s involvement in a range of curriculum development experiences in the UK and elsewhere. Emphasis is placed on the broader goals of education, with a clear warning on the invidious impact of educational reforms that focus narrowly on attainment standards.
