Abstract

School curricula nearly always start with subjects. We argue that it would be better if they started with the aims of education. We begin from two overarching ones: to enable each student to lead a life that is personally flourishing; to help others to do so, too. These two aims generate lesser aims of increasing specificity. Once a nation-wide framework is in place, the remaining task of curriculum construction passes to the schools. It is they who fill out the general scheme of an aims-based curriculum (ABC) with activities suited to their students and their circumstances.
