School curriculum can be developed by many different people. It takes more than one or two people to achieve and implement a formal curriculum. The government has always played a major role in developing the curriculum's along side teachers, students, experts and companies. Many of these decisions to create curriculum come from a combination of local, national and school participation, but in the end any final decisions fall under national. Political views of the curriculum can impact how the design of the curriculum is made and have influenced many curriculum outcomes. Looking at past and data curriculum can affect the ways people look at building the new curriculum. The teachers play an important role in building a curriculum because they are the ones who are inside the classroom and spending the most time with what the kids are interested in and how they learn or don’t learn. Levin suggests that it is important to involve the community members because their views and thoughts need to be considered. It shocks me that experts and scientists have more of a say then teachers because they don’t know the teaching aspect of things and how it may work in the classroom
One connection that is made between the two articles is that it takes many people to produce a curriculum. There was never just one person who gets to be deciding these things it was always more then one and multiple different groups. Another connection that can be made is that they say experts are very important to have to be able to produce these documents. The treaty document states that they bring in elders to give their knowledge and views on the Indigenous community. Tensions can be brought up because the elders may have different views on Indigenous ways then the Ministry of Education. Also, teachers may feel that Indigenous culture is being over taught and decide on their own that they don’t want to teach it, which should not be the case. Although the Ministry of Education may have different views with the Indigenous culture and what to include might be something the community doesn’t feel the need to add and vis versa.
