congratulating all of you preparing such a type of e- content. When I talk about the content I found repetition of the option in module no. 2.



            School, in the modern world has been looked at as social transformer and great equalizer. Further, it has been has been consider as an indicator of development. School, it is believed through their knowledge ans value systems, change individual and transformed society to reach  and realize constitutionally desired goals.The realization of intended goals by the school depends on how effectively it transforms the available spaces and sites in and around it into learning environments. Schools, the physical space, becomes a learning space through its curriculum.  Therefore, curriculum development and organisation become all the more crucial aspects of schools, as they determine the functions and nature of school.

            School education lays the foundation stone in building the personality of a person. The importance of school education lies in the fact that the children of today will become productive citizens of tomorrow. The growth and future of our country highly depends upon the quality of the present school education system. The curriculum of a school is the totality of the experiences that a school plans for its pupils. It is not restricted to courses; extracurricular activities and auxiliary services such as guidance and health services are also part of the curriculum. On the other hand the curriculum does not include everything the students learn in school (Clarke and Starr, 1981).
