Calls for full review of Curriculum for Excellence

"The implementation of Scotland's Curriculum for Excellence has left educators facing myriad unintended consequences, says Barry Black."

"On Wednesday evening, the Scottish government suffered a rare defeat in Holyrood when MSPs called for a full review of Curriculum for Excellence (CfE). First minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed that the government will take this forward, `whether or not [they] consider that, that is necessary`."

"The emerging evidence, however, points to a range of unresolved and unintended consequences which exist as a result of CfE’s implementation."

"Issues within the senior phase are well-documented. Whether it is the narrowing number of subject choices, particularly in poorer areas, the progression and structure of new qualifications or the prevalence of multi-qualification teaching in classrooms, there are numerous issues which clearly impact upon young people’s choices and chances."
