If, however, the content and methods suggested by a national curriculum seem to the teacher to be inappropriate or irrelevant to children's needs, the teacher may be faced with a conflict likely to increase the levels of stress he or she suffers. The younger the children, the more their immediate needs and interests will appear to compete with remote long-term societal needs likely to be emphasised in a national curriculum." "This book seeks to present a range of international pespectives on the interplay between childhood, curriculum and classroom practice. The first part of the book offers a framework for thinking about primary curricula, while the second part presents a range of international views on the primary curriculum from South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, southeast Asia, Europe and the USA."--Jacket." ;
