Summary This book gives a broad view of developing policy in the years leading up to the National Curriculum, with a close focus on the intricacies of policy implementation and review - 'friction at the interface'. It deals with a two-year research study evaluating the implementation of the National Curriculum Mathematics at Key Stages 1, 2 and 3. The focus of the study was on primary and secondary teachers and their perceptions and actions in a period of major change, brought about by the move to a statutory National Curriculum. This book is an examination of that research study, its genesis, and influence on subsequent events.
