黃顯華(Hin-Wah WONG)

摘要

七十年代或以前,香港的課程發展主要是受考試、政治和教科書的影響。在計劃實施普及教育的七十年代初期,有關課程內容的設計與發展程序的模式的價值矛盾與取捨的討論已開始萌芽。普及教育實施後,這種討論更為廣泛和深入。本文試從平等/自由;共同/分殊;普及/精英;短期/長期收益;行政/專業主導五個度向探討香港目前課程所出現的各種問題。前四個度向都是和課程內容的設專計有關,最後一個是和課程發展程序的模式有關。

Abstract

Before the seventieth of this century, the curriculum development of Hong Kong was predominently influenced by examination, politics and textbooks. After the implementation of the compulsory schooling, continuous debates on the choice of curricular design and models of curriculum development have been one of the important issues in the educational system of Hong Kong. This article tries to delineate the issue based on the following five dimensions: equality vs freedom; common vs diversity; comprehensive vs elitism; short vs long term benefit; administrative vs professional. The first four dimenstions related to designs of the curriculum, while the last one pertaining to models of curriculum development.
