What Is a Normative Basis for Curriculum Research?
Straumanis, Eric R.
This study undertakes to clarify the concept of a normative basis for curriculum research by considering four possible interpretations: (1) a set of substantive moral principles, (2) such a set taken as an integral part of a putative curriculum theory, (3) a meta-strategy governing curriculum decisionmaking, or (4) the norms which specify the kinds of terms that may be used in stating research hypotheses. None of these interpretations appears to be fully satisfactory for curriculum research, although the third and fourth (with qualifications) seem more promising than do the first and the second.
