Shortcomings of the Existing Curriculum



  • Over burdened, outdated knowledge and skills (Yildirim& Simsek)
  • Lack of coherence (Barnett,1997
  • lack of professional development (Dede, 2009)
  • lack of contextual skills development (Weinberger, 2007)
  • Inappropriate selection and organization of knowledge (Bridges, 2000)
  • Incompatibility with 21stcentury's skills (Scott, 1997; Karoly, 2004)

Walkington(2002) says"thosewho would like to bring change must have an understanding of the system and the culture that they wish to change"
