In this important new book the author looks back on the 'knowing question'. What knowledge is selected to be validated as school knowledge, or as part of the curriculum, and why is it selected? Looking forward to the next decade, Young discusses how most developed countries have high levels of participation in post-compulsory education but still use curricula designed for a time when only the elite pursued further education. He argues the need to rethink post-16 education to shift focus onto vocational education, schoolwork issues and lifelong learning.
