I agreed but don’t you think that the variety of standards make different kind of student having different knowledge? You are right on your place but a positive face of coin is that You can gain various things from various kind of knowledge. This will create difference and we get different kind of thinkers and future makers.
Disagree....General basic skills should be world wide....math, reading, writing.....but, the uniqueness of each culture and what they value as important should not be stripped by a universal curriculum.
Curriculum should be developed with the most immediate needs of a specific society or school system in mind
Anyway, we are so divided in this world, it would take generations before we could agree on what should be taught......
The US would want their way, Britain would want their way, Africa would be divided between the northern countries and the south..... and somebody would get mad and here we go with another world war......
That's not good. If it's easy to learn, it's not worth knowing.
Who is to decide what this standard would be? A single world-wide curriculum would need to include every perspective of history and culture in order to be completely accurate. Anything less would be discrimination.
If every school taught an identical curriculum, there would be no opportunity for students to specialize. There would be no innovation.
