John White has consistently advocated that the curriculum be designed and implemented for the interests of learners. There is more to education than the curriculum but by maintaining a focus on the question of why we have the curricula we have and how they might be better constructed, John has bought a conceptual rigour to curriculum studies. This chapter examines how John’s engagement with curriculum issues has been a feature of his work for over forty years. Throughout this time, he has argued that education must be for the benefit of individual learners and take them, rather than subjects, as its starting point.
