Outdoor Education and Physical Education in the National Curriculum.
Williams, A. P.
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Leadership, v11 n4 p12-14 Win 1994
Addresses effects of the (UK) Education Reform Act of 1988 on three linked components of outdoor education: outdoor pursuits, outdoor studies, and residential experience. Argues that curriculum changes completely fragment the cross-curricular value of outdoor education and fundamentally undermine the role of perhaps the most significant process of learning contributing to personal and social development of young people.
