Is the Curriculum Fit for the 21st Century?

Description

Should the curriculum teach a foundation of knowledge, or simply provide analytical skills? Krishnan Guru-Murthy explores the issue with a panel of experts.

Looking at the changes to the curriculum, from the introduction of diplomas and changes to the Key Stage 3 curriculum, to the Primary Curriculum Review, Krishnan and a panel including Mick Waters, director of curriculum at the QCA, and Matthew Taylor, head of the Royal Society, discuss the issues.

The discussion also covers the use of the internet, analytical skills, and where the curriculum should go from here.

The Big Debate features a lively discussion around these questions, recorded before a live studio audience at London's Capital City Academy.
