A number of social, political, cultural and educational developments are driving curriculum reform in Australia. They include global production processes, improved access to knowledge through ICT, the diversity of school communities, and increased demands on educational bodies to use data as a means to inform teaching and learning. We must preserve those aspects of curriculum that are fundamental to its quality, effectiveness and success, while also responding intelligently, flexibly, creatively and bravely to social change.
