Summary

" Over the last decade, Australia has been implementing a national curriculum, moving away from state-based control and marking a dramatic shift in the Australian education system. This raises a number of questions: Why and how did this happen? What were the debates, disputes and processes that led to the current version of the Australian Curriculum? To what extent does it meet the future needs of our society? Is it a national curriculum, or do states and territories still retain control? What might or should happen from here? In this book, many of Australia's leading curriculum scholars explore these questions. The book will assist in understanding and analysing the debates and tensions around the Australian Curriculum, how these played out,and how the outcomes of these debates are represented." -- Back cover.
