As education is has been influenced highly by learning principles, this section will discuss the theories in psychology that shaped the education curriculum. This whole section will serve as a background for the arguments that will be presented in the succeeding section.
Based on the philosophical and theoretical perspectives discussed above, these purposes will be evaluated. The aims of this section are: (1) to situate the purposes highlighted by the national curriculum on philosophical perspectives of education; and (2) to evaluate the extent that these goals are adhering to the philosophy of education. To be able to do this, various perspectives from scholars and academics will be presented.
The conclusion will summarise the discussions that have been presented. It will highlight the points of contentions and disagreements with regard to the implementation of the national curriculum. I will present my own perspective with regard to the philosophical issues raised by the objectives stated in the national curriculum. I will end by providing recommendations based on my analysis.
