The vanishing National Curriculum
Jones, K. and Brown, L. (1994) The vanishing National Curriculum. Mathematics Teaching, 148, p.19.
One of the major outcomes of the Dearing review of the National Curriculum has been the instruction to each curriculum subject working group, including mathematics, to reduce the volume of material required by law to be taught. By all accounts the mathematics working group devising the new draft mathematics curriculum were under intense pressure from SCAA to do just this. The resulting draft curriculum is noticeably slimmer. This paper looks at what has gone, and why.
