Should the curriculum be informed by an independent expert panel?

Panel discussion


University of Birmingham, University Centre Avon Room


In this panel debate between policymakers and teachers, we will discuss whether the curriculum and associated assessment should be government-controlled or informed through an independent panel of subject experts.

Summer Science Exhibition

What are the ideal relationships between curriculum review panels, national assessment agencies, exam boards, teachers, subject experts and Government? Would independent expert panels make the science curricula more stable in the long term?

What about accompanying assessment and accountability processes?
