dc.description.abstractRomania, like all former communist countries in Europe, is undergoing many important transformations from the communist system to democracy. One major change since the events of the 1989 revolution is the reshaping of the educational system at all levels to bring it into line with practices of western countries. There is official recognition of the need for a new and modern educational system, with significant implications for the teaching of geography and other subjects in secondary school. Geography has been and remains an important subject of study at all educational levels in Romanian schools. Viewing educational reform as primarily curricular reform, this study focuses on the main characteristics of the new geography curriculum for secondary schools, a curriculum that represents a shift from the traditional geography, a descriptive one, to a modern geography, a geography for life.
