'All South Africans must now unite and join hands and say we are one country, one nation, one people, marching together into the future.' - Nelson Mandela

The introduction of Curriculum 2005 and Outcomes Based Education mark both a sea change in the way in which education is offered in schools, and a challenge to all involved.

This book considers the main issues in curriculum management as education switches to a more devolved framework. Key concepts and principles are analysed which can then be applied to specific contexts. Case examples are given, providing practical illustrations of how individual schools are managing aspects of the curriculum. Activities are included to encourage reflective practice and provide opportunities for personal development.
