Unreal Tournament: The Battle Over the New Zealand Social Studies Curriculum

  • Keith Sullivan

Abstract

This article examines the process and content of the highly contentious social studies curriculum recently introduced in New Zealand. Essentially, there was a conflict between two ideological perspectives: that of the social democrats who wrote the original draft, and that of the neo-liberals as represented by the Education Forum. The article concludes that in the contest over the new curriculum, the social democrat perspective nominally gained the upper hand.
