Summary "This text, the first of two volumes, presents a series of expansive critiques on the policy and ideology underlying the content and structure of the New Zealand Curriculum Framework. It contains the work of some of our leading curriculum theorists and a number of curriculum statement writers. The National Government (1990-1999) primarily saw the role of this curriculum as economic and commercial - to nurture an 'enterprise culture' to enhance our global economic competitiveness. This book examines the assumptions about knowledge, learning, individuals, society and the purpose of education which underpin this extreme form of outcomes-based curriculum. These are located in the wider context of educational restructuring, the managerial and accountability demands which now dominate practice in the sector and the creation of a competitive education marketplace"--P.
