    From the curriculum review outline for the province of British Columbia (2010), which I happen to have right beside me....

    Consultations to date have pointed to clear directions: A more flexible curriculum that prescribes less and enables more, for both teachers and students and a system focused on the core competencies, skills and knowledge that students need to succeed in the 21st century.

    Feedback from teachers on BC’s Education Plan has suggested that currently, B.C.’s curriculum has too many prescribed learning outcomes and that reducing those outcomes will give teachers more time and flexibility to allow students to explore their interests and passions.  

    The task for the Ministry as it develops new curriculum and assessment guidelines is to remove barriers to personalizing instruction so that the curriculum is optimally manageable for teachers and allows them more freedom to find approaches that work for schools and students alike. (
