A School Geography Curriculum for the Twenty-First Century? The Experience of the National Curriculum in England and Wales.
Rawling, Eleanor M.
International Journal of Social Education, v10 n2 p1-21 Fall-Win 1995-96
Discusses the 1991 adoption of geography national standards in England and Wales and the subsequent 1995 revisions. The original standards reflected a conservative emphasis on physical geography as well as a complete rejection of problem solving and critical thinking. The 1995 revisions restored some key ideas and broad emphases. (MJP)
