The New Educational Policy for the Reform of the Curriculum and the Change of School Knowledge in the Case of Greek Compulsory Education
Koustourakis, Gerasimos
International Studies in Sociology of Education, v17 n1-2 p131-146 Jun 2007
This article looks critically at Greek educational reform to the curriculum of compulsory education--reform that took place so that Greece could put into practice the decisions of the European Union of Lisbon (2000) for the contribution of education to the adaptation of the new data of the "knowledge society". Bernstein's theory about pedagogic discourse is utilized. Also, with the use of qualitative content analysis in specific resources (parliamentary debates, new curriculum and textbooks) we tried to answer the following questions: Which are the dominant social principles that led the Greek state to change the curriculum? Through which process and with the contribution of which factors did the reform of the curriculum come about? And which are the characteristics of the new school knowledge and of the pedagogic practices that are selected for their reproduction at the level of the classroom? (Contains 1 note.)
