Curriculum as Public Policy | Week 5

how do you think that school curricula are developed?

I think the school curricula is developed by the representatives of schools. As an educational guess, the writer of curricula has to coast through many influences: government, policymakers, universities, and perhaps, students. I learned in past seminars that curriculums take time to become official and used in the field. However, I believe politics decide what content should be included. 

How are school curricula developed and implemented?

I think school curricula are developed and implemented through hours of practice in school.  The school tries to put life into these curricula with the fundamentals and rules that are given by the politic. 

What new information/perspectives does this reading provide about the development and implementation of school curriculum?

A new perspective I came across is that students have no say on the curricula. They have been silenced and the government has been close-minded against the defence of some students. Otherwise, I see the political influence in every aspect of schooling. 

Is there anything that surprises you or maybe that concerns you?

I believe that the school needs to change its tone towards students. Students ought to have the platform to express their needs and at the end of the day, they are next in line. They will take over and watch over the nation. Therefore, they need to practice autonomy and the means to challenge the societal norm.
