Content Section

National curriculum

A description – normally set out in a document or series of related documents – of the prescribed common goals, objectives and quality and/or content criteria of a national school system. This may take the form of standards (defined objectives and achievement criteria at given levels of education and in specific subjects or learning areas). It may also indicate the extent to which decisions on curriculum content can be made on the local or school level. (Adapted from: OECD 2004).
