The Development of the Curriculum

Before the reading I thought that the curriculum is developed from the government. I think the government has a huge say in what students should and will be learning about. It is important for students in the same district to be enforced with the same curriculum.

After the reading I learned that curriculum is developed from many different organizations. These include, the teacher, the community and the elected officials. These higher organizations determine how the curriculum should be written. I believe it is based around their philosophies and world views. One thing that I never thought of was the students point of view. I believe that students should have an influence on the curriculum because they are being presented with it. The curriculum has to adjust to the new generations of students.
