People in primary school teaching jobs
in Scotland remain unconvinced by the new Curriculum for Excellence (CfE).
That is according to a team of researchers at Stirling University, who found that the controversial new curriculum is continuing to cause a degree of "anxiety" within the profession.
Although teachers broadly support the new approach, a significant number have trouble implanting the curriculum.
Dr Mark Priestley, of the School of Education at Stirling University, said: "The research aimed to identify effective practices of curriculum implementation and teachers' professional learning in the context of CfE.
"It also produced insights to inform sustainable, large-scale curriculum change and support for teachers' professional learning."
Dr Priestley expressed hope that the research will help to bring about changes to the curriculum.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the government insisted that it had taken the views of teachers into consideration and "responded positively" when it was developing the curriculum.
