Scotland

Analysis: from concept to classroom
Denholm, A.  The Herald (11 April 2012)

New research by Stirling University highlights that “there is still significant uncertainty over [Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellent (CfE)], even as 54,000 secondary pupils move towards the first exams in 2014.”  CfE’s purpose was to move education from the regurgitation of facts to “a new style of learning, better suited to the fast-changing modern economy which relies on creative thinking and resourcefulness.”  Focus has been on the early CfE curricular materials, which have been labeled “vague and confusing.”  (A summary of the Stirling University research can be found here; additional news about the study can be found here.)
