In pursuing quality content, we looked for a curriculum that promoted diversity of thought, objective truth, rigor and logical thinking. As our culture rapidly drifts away from a shared set of values, it is important to determine whose values or worldview is responsible for shaping young minds and influencing how curriculum content is presented to students.
Knowledge-based schooling puts the emphasis of early education on teaching and learning an enabling core of broadly shared knowledge—enabling because it builds strong foundations for later learning and opens doors to effective participation and mutual understanding in the wider society. Such knowledge is possessed by successful adults and taken for granted by literate writers and speakers. It’s the broad and diverse knowledge that makes responsible citizenship possible.
