These form a powerful triad that is the foundation of a system which is structurally incapable of internal reform; unable to confront the complexities of modern life. Part Two describes and analyses a practical alternative. Rejecting the necessity for formal control, closeting in classes, and a painting by numbers curriculum, the concepts of ‘curriculum’ ‘teaching’ and ‘organisation’ are redefined, focusing upon how a powerful and liberating context in which educational activities may take place.< Less
