Common Sense: A Programme for the Future

ByMichael Barber, Duncan Graham

The case for a National Curriculum is now undisputed. How can the present one be reformed so that its benefits are maximized and its flaws, whether in design or implementation, ironed out? This brief final chapter is intended to show how that process can be begun. We believe we have drawn on threads of arguments which run throughout the book: much of the justification for our programme therefore is not repeated here. We hope its focussed proposals will generate some worthwhile debate.
