associations correct curriculum errors

4 December 2012

Primary school is where the educational journey begins and the revelation that the new curriculum for this stage is factually inaccurate is worrying.

The government’s consultation on its plans for the new curriculum received many responses regarding mistakes within its specifications for certain programmes of study, such as science and maths.

We have heard much criticism recently of ‘teaching for exams’ and ‘rote learning’ with the suggestion being that a culture of deeper educational learning of key subjects should be promoted. Learning standards are improving and these new programmes need to be reviewed before the education sector is  likely to consider them fit for purpose. With the exam system already in turmoil, inaccurate curriculums are yet another set back in boosting the reputation of our education system.
