The British Schools' National Curriculum: English and the Politics of Teaching Poetry from "Different Cultures and Traditions"
Doug, Roshan
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v43 n4 p439-456 2011
This polemic paper illustrates the correlation between the original principles underpinning the British National Curriculum which was introduced in the late 1980s and the current quality of the nation's schools' poetry from a variety of poets including those "from other cultures and traditions". It argues that the conception of the National Curriculum and its subsequent revisions, specifically in relation to the subject of English, are historically products of a nation's social, cultural and economic insecurity.
