Given the time and resources available, the Working Party has not been able to respond in depth to all of the items listed in the Terms of Reference (see Appendices). At a general level, however, the group has managed to review the fundamental questions of what a national core curriculum might mean, whether core curriculum guidelines should be formulated for Australian schools and what these guidelines should attempt to cover. This, then, is a report indicating the kind of national core curriculum that the working party would want to promote and is not the "guidelines" requested in the fifth term of reference or the "practical ways of making core curriculum amenable to classroom adaptation...(etc.)" requested in the last term of reference. As Chairman of the Working Party) I submit this report to the Council of CDC; it being regarded by all members as a fair and accurate summary of the group's discussions and concerns.
