First paragraph: The recent Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) review of Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) is the latest in a series of opportunities to develop the aspirational goals of CfE; moreover, it is an opportunity that will quickly disappear - as have previous opportunities - if we do not act decisively on the OECD recommendations. These include the simplification of guidance, an enhanced focus on the quality of implementation (i.e. pedagogical experience of educators and pupils in schools), the development of curriculum development capacity across the system, and a greater focus on using research to inform practice. A rather intriguing recommendation referred to creating a new narrative for CfE.
