STAKEHOLDERS IN CURRICULUM IMPLEMENTATION
Transcript of STAKEHOLDERS IN CURRICULUM IMPLEMENTATION
Teachers are curricularists.
School leaders are curriculum managers
Community as the Curriculum Resources and a Learning Environment
Learners have more dynamic participation from the planning, designing, implementing and evaluating. However, the degree of their involvement is dependent on their maturity. the older they are in high school or college, the more they participate. From another angle, whether learners are in the elementary or college level, they can make or break curriculum implementation by their active or non-involvement. Afterall, learners together with the teachers, place action to the curriculum.
Teachers are the stakeholders who plan, design, teachers, implement and evaluate the curriculum. No doubt, the most important person in curriculum implementation is the teacher. Teachers' influence upon learners cannot be measured. Teachers should have full knowledge of the program philosophy, content and components of curriculum and ways of teaching.
Principals and school leads too, have important roles in curriculum implementation process in schools.
Parents are significant school partners. Besides the students, teachers and administrators, parents play an important role in curriculum implementation.
STAKEHOLDERS IN CURRICULUM IMPLEMENTATION
Stakeholders are individuals or institutions that are interested in the curriculum.
A teacher design, enriches and modifies the curriculum to suit the learners' characteristics. As curriculum developers, teachers are part of textbook committees, teacher selection, school evaluation committee or textbooks and module writers themselves.
When a curriculum has already been written,he teacher's role is to implement like a technician, however, teachers are reflective persons. they put their hearts into what they do. they are very mindful that in the center of everything they do, is the learner.
Some of the roles that the teachers do in curriculum implementation are:
GUIDING, FACILITATING AND DIRECTING THE ACTIVITIES OF THE LEARNERS
CHOOSING THE ACTIVITIES AND THE METHODS TO BE UTILIZED
CHOOSING THE MATERIALS THAT ARE NECESSARY FOR THE ACTIVITY
EVALUATING THE WHOLE IMPLEMENTATION AND PROCESS
MAKING A DECISION WHETHER TO CONTINUE, MODIFY OR TERMINATE THE CURRICULUM
They should understand fully the need for change and the implementation process. They should be ready to assist the teachers and the students in the implementation. Communication line should be open to all concerned school leaders a leas in curriculum teamwork.
Convincing the parents on the merits of the new curriculum is the job of the school leads. They should be committed to change and should employ strategies to meet the needs of the teachers and learners like buildings, books, library, and other needed resources.
Schools need to listen to parents' concerns about school curriculum like textbooks, school activities, grading systems and others. Schools have one way of engaging parents cooperation through Brigada Eskwela. In this event, parents will be able to know the situation in the school. Most often parents volunteer to help. They can also be tapped in various co-curricular activities.
Parents may not directly be involved in curriculum implementation, but they are formidable partners for the success of any curriculum development endeavor.
HOW DO PARENTS HELP SHAPE THE CURRICULUM IN SCHOOLS?
The school composed of parents who are positively involved in school activities have better achievement than schools with uninvolved parents. Disciplinary problems are minimal, and students are highly motivated. When parents take interest in their child's learning, they become closer to the school.
The home is the extended school environment. In lifelong learning, the achieved learning in schools are transferred at home. thus, the home becomes the laboratory of learning. Parents see to it that what children learn in school are practiced at home. they follow up lessons, they make available materials for learning and they give permission for the participation of their children.
In most schools, parents associations are organized. This is being encouraged in School Based Management. In some cases, this organization also include teachers to expand the school learning community. Many school projects and activities are supported by this organization. This is considered as the best practice in most performing schools.
"It takes the whole village to educate the child."
- Former First Lady Hillary Clinton
It is true that the school is in the community, hence the community is the extended school ground, a learning environment. All the barangay leaders, the elders, others citizens and residents of the community have a stake in the curriculum.
It is the bigger school community that becomes the venue of learning. The rich natural and human resources of the community can assist in educating the children. The community is the reflection of the school's influence and the school is a reflection of the community support.

A school curriculum, whether big or small are influenced by many stakeholders. Each one has a contribution and influence in what should replace, modify, substitute the current curriculum. Each one has a significant mark in specific development and change process of curriculum development.
The teacher has a great stake in the curriculum. Curriculum planning, designing and implementing are in the hands of a good teacher. In the educational setting, it is clear that the teacher has a very significant role in curriculum development.
At the end f the curriculum development process, the fundamental question asked is: Have the students learned?
Why do curricularists place a lot of premium on the students?
It is because, the learners make the curriculum alive. A written curriculum that does notconsider the students, will have a little chance to succeed.
