School’s vision, mission, goals and objectives should be reviewed and used as bases for curriculum design.
The needs and the interests of the learners, in particular, and the society, in general, should be considered. Alternative curriculum design should consider advantages and disadvantages in terms of costs, scheduling, class size, facilities and personnel required.
