Curriculum as an Expression of National Identity.
Reid, William A.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v15 n2 p113-22 Win 2000
Curricula are cultural artifacts. Comparing uppersecondary curricula across countries reveals fundamental differences. In central European and Scandinavian countries, schools offer an integrated, "pansophic" curriculum model. England has an "alternative" model reflecting its pragmatic philosophic tradition. U.S. high schools are modeled after the values of Enlightenment republicanism. (Contains 16 references.) (MLH)
