This report of the NSW Curriculum Review is based on a series of public consultations across NSW in 2018, more than 60 meetings with stakeholder groups, over 2000 online submissions, and in excess of 700 responses to reform directions identified in an Interim Report in 2019.
The Review also studied recent curriculum reform initiatives in a number of other countries and reviewed evidence from cross-disciplinary research into human learning and the conditions that promote successful learning. Throughout the Review process, people have been generous with their time and deeply thoughtful in providing advice. They have welcomed the opportunity and challenge to envision a curriculum appropriate to school education well into the future.
A strong and consistent message has been that change is required. The current curriculum arrangements are not the arrangements that will best serve children and young people of NSW into the future. Between 86% and 96% of those responding online to the Interim Report’s proposed reform directions expressed their support for significant change.
