The Return to Subjects: A Sociological Perspective on the UK Coalition Government's Approach to the 14-19 Curriculum
Young, Michael
Curriculum Journal, v22 n2 p265-278 2011
This article draws on some ideas from the sociology of knowledge to examine the UK Coalition government's approach to the 14-19 curriculum. Following a brief outline of a theoretical model, the article contrasts the ideas about the curriculum of the new Secretary of State, Michael Gove, with those they seek to replace. Following a brief discussion of Gove's ideas about vocational education, the article concludes by proposing a more coherent approach to the 14-19 curriculum and discusses its implications for the question of educational equality.
