Abstract

Whereas the previous government, regarding education primarily as a means to an end, showed little interest in questions of curriculum content, Gove’s counter-revolution involves the enforcement of a deeply authoritarian politics of knowledge. An adequate response to such cultural and curricular conservatism needs to expose the falsity of Gove’s claims to rigour, but also to promote an alternative model of curriculum and pedagogy. The salient features of such an alternative are visible, not only in the history of progressive education but also in aspects of current practice – aspects that are ignored or marginalised in dominant discourses of education.
