As a group drawing on the wide range of experiences from our visit to Kerala we identified the following challenges. We feel that these challenges are important to teachers in the context of the new Key Stage 3 Curriculum. They are about the relationship between education and society.
In discussing this relationship in Kerala, we found the triad of Curriculum, Campus and Community useful to help focus our ideas, and have chosen to organise the challenges using this framework. We have ordered our ideas from 1-9 as below, showing where we think the responsiblity of the challenge lies, but there was some debate about this, and another group might see these challenges differently, when relating them to the three Cs.
COMMUNITY (Society) CURRICULUM (Education)
