Before I started my career as a university student I was not aware of what or who mandated the curriculum. As I thought it did not really affect – which is odd because I have been a student for the majority of my life. It was not until I started to actually pursue being a teacher that I gave more attention to all aspects of teaching: one of those aspects being the curriculum because it is what my future profession is going to be centered around. In Canada the curriculum is implemented by each province. That is why we have different curriculums all across Canada and not just one unified curriculum. I found the part of the reading interesting when it was talking about the two debates for the curriculum. One being that of the overall shape of the school – which subjects will be included etc. And the second debate over what content of the subjects should be included. I was intrigued to find out that sure there are many people that are involved when making the curriculum. However, the government has the final say. This concerns me, because I believe that teachers should have more say in what they actually get to teach, and not politicians who would have different ideas about what needs to be done.
