Abstract

One of the most controversial issues in South African education in the recent past has been the process of development and implementation of Curriculum 2005. Curriculum 2005 is significant both because of the enormity of the practical and symbolic legacy that it attempts to address as well as the weight that is attached to what it can achieve. This chapter is written from the perspective of one who has been simultaneously outsider and insider in the development of Curriculum 2005.
