My thoughts on how the curriculum was made before research:
The way I think that the curriculum is developed is through a committee. This committee sits down and works together to come up with a curriculum that they think needs to be learned based off current society. Although I don’t think that the curriculum is up to date in most subject areas, I also don’t think that the right people are in charge. Mainly the government/ minister of education, and other parties are involved. I think that teachers, parents, and even students should be the ones to come up with the content of the curriculum.
After reading in more depth towards the making of the curriculum, my findings were quite shocking. I came to the conclusion that the curriculum is mainly politically based. This political aspect means that any disagreement is decided over a vote. Although this is what our society agrees upon, it may not always be the best conclusion for our students. I enjoyed reading that teachers and administrators had a good role in the curriculum, however I wish that the overall goal was in favor of the students and not decided due to majority.
