Imagine an experiential curriculum…

"The [UK] National Curriculum does not focus on these [rich, complex living] skills, or indeed, demand that they are covered. So much of what is really important is left to chance, is seen as a by-product. Imagine the power of a curriculum that puts the life and learning skills of children at it's heart and uses concepts and information as the tools to exemplify and provide experience."
– Richard Gerver, 'Creating Tomorrow's Schools Today', p.49
Imagine, indeed.
