Curriculum for Excellence in the secondary school

Drew V (2013) Curriculum for Excellence in the secondary school. In: Bryce T, Humes W, Gillies D & Kennedy A (eds.) Scottish Education: Referendum, 4th edition. 4th ed. Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, pp. 501-511.

First paragraph: Secondary education in Scotland at the time of writing is in a state of flux and flow as the sector continues to develop and implement Curriculum for Excellence (Scottish Executive 2004) across 32 local authorities. The pace and scope of change varies as educators, schools and local authorities work, both individually and collaboratively, to make sense of how this policy will enable them to provide a ‘good' educational experience for every child and young person in their own contexts and settings. The full potential of Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) has yet to be realised and meantime offers particular challenges for the secondary sector with regards to structural and pedagogical implications.
