Buchanan, Michael. (2006) Curriculum management: Influencing school outlook towards religious education. Journal of Religious Education. 54(2), pp. 71 - 78.
Several dioceses in Australia have been involved in the management and implementation of new curriculum initiatives in religious education. Based on the findings of a broader study on religious education coordinators' management of a curriculum change in the Archdiocese of Melbourne, this paper considers ways in which curriculum management can influence school outlook towards the discipline of religious education. School outlook refers to the priority given to a particular curriculum area such as religious education. This paper makes particular reference to curriculum issues, such as staffing, working with leadership teams and promoting curriculum credibility for religious education are explored to demonstrate the interplay between curriculum management and school outlook.
