Curriculum, Psychology and Society

Krishna Kumar The author rejects the notion that there are certain time-honoured, proven rules capable of guiding us when we want to prepare a curriculum for children's education and argues that there is no escape from reflecting on the conditions obtaining in our society and culture if we want to give worthwhile education to our children. The problem of curriculum is related to our perception of what kind of society and people we are, and to our vision of the kind of society we want to be. By taking shelter in the 'received' perspective and the 'principles of curriculum development' that it offers, we merely shun our responsibility and allow ourselves to be governed by choices made long ago or elsewhere under very different circumstances.
