The debate about the national curriculum neccessarily involves values: some subjects are excluded and when subjects are given priority over others, this is an expression of values. It has been suggested that in a multi-cultural, multi-faith society there was insufficient agreement on values on which to base a national curriculum for all young people aged 5-16. In this volume, educationists and experts on values, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, discuss the question of values and the curriculum in societies which are changing rapidly and in which disagreements about values are sometimes acrimonious. One of the themes explored is cultural diversity, there is enough agreement about fundamental values to enable a national curriculum to be constructed - but not necessarily the one that now exists. There are discussions of values, problems and issues connected with curriculum planning from a variety of viewpoints.
