A World We Never Had: the forgotten quest for a comprehensive school curriculum

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

Recently the spectre of increased selection has raised much attention, frequently associated with 'fairness' linked to a meritocracy - reminding us of the tension between the principles of equality of opportunity and access as the key driver of the comprehensive school as against the principles of equal value and respect. Whether the public's interest and imagination can be galvanised to support and celebrate the comprehensive ideal of equal value will have a profound and defining effect on the future of comprehensive schools. This article is an exploration of some of the issues, especially relating to the curriculum.
