All Our Futures: Creativity, Culture & Education.
This report argues that a English national strategy for creative and cultural education is essential. Three principle objectives are laid out to address this strategy. First, there are important relationships between creative and cultural education for the whole curriculum. Second, teachers must be trained in the most current methods to stimulate student's learning. Finally, the balance of the school curriculum to create partnerships between schools and the world is essential for today's creative and cultural education. The report develops the themes of the challenge for education, creative potential, freedom and control, cultural understanding, and a systematic approach. The four chapters include: (1) "Facing the Future" sets out definitions and a framework for creative and cultural education; (2) "A New Balance" explains implications for the English school curriculum, for teaching, and for assessment; (3) "Beyond the School" argues for a broad base of partnerships between schools and other agencies and considers issues of resources and training; and (4) "A National Strategy" presents a series of detailed recommendations as a framework for a national strategy. The key message of this report is the need for a new balance: in education; in setting national priorities; in the structure and organization of the school curriculum; in methods of teaching and assessment; and in relationships between English schools and other agencies.
