University of Edinburgh (RIGEN) Decolonising curriculum knowledge: A scholarly journey from the local, to national and international perspectives

Abstract

Since 1999, national curriculum policymakers appear to have ignored Recommendation 67 from Macpherson (1999) when considering my teaching and learning interest. The current primary school history national curriculum directives for teaching and learning (DfE, 2013) speak solely to the Anglocentric narrative of mass migration to the British Isles over the ages (Moncrieffe, 2020). No other ethnic groups from outside of Europe are given attention in this policy document. Government discourse since the education policy reforms of 2010 continue with claims of a national curriculum, that is “broad and balanced”. This is untrue. My detailed unpicking of DfE, 2013 exposes the naked truth. This is a “White Lives Matter” only national history curriculum policy document that reinforces a neo conservative hegemonic agenda for teaching and learning.
