The Corruption of the Curriculum

Robert Whelan (ed.), June 2007

Subjects in the school curriculum used to be regarded as discrete areas of knowledge which would be imparted to pupils by teachers motivated by a love of learning. The contributors to this book argue that we need to return to the traditional view of education as a means of transmitting a body of knowledge from one generation to the next, and that academic rigour and respect for the professionalism of teachers should take precedence over political manipulation of the curriculum.

“…[a] devastating critique of the curriculum…”
Nick Gibb MP
