    Who Owns the Curriculum

    Who decides what is learned in the classroom, who has access to learning and discovery, and how is learning assessed? Questions to be addressed include:

    • Can we, as educators and learners ourselves, find fresh ways to think about what we most want our students to learn, why we want them to learn it, and how best we might enable their learning?
    • How might we open up new ways to match skills with values, and content with methods of instruction?
    • Can we construct and advocate curricula that liberate our students' imaginations and critical intelligences without sacrificing discipline and rigor?
    • How can educators implement a curriculum within a market-based political economy that will truly enfranchise and empower students?
