Abstract

The aim of this thesis was to analyse the production and enactment of 'C21 curriculum' policy across a range of contexts in Australia. It investigates how a 'C21 curriculum policy' was conceived at the national level and enacted at the State level (WA) as well as within selected local private schools. A modified 'policy trajectory' framework was used to generate research questions for this qualitative study, based on the four main contexts of policy processes: influences, policy text production, enactment and outcomes. Research findings reveal tensions among policy actors and processes, which serve as 'policy
learning' for the 21st century.
