We are ask about, what are the roles do teachers play in curriculum planning? So, we all know that teachers play a big role when we talk about education. Teachers are the one who deliver classroom instructions that helps students learn or acquire knowledge. They are the main source who can help to achieve student's goals in life. And teachers imparts knowledge, good values, tradition, modern day challenges and ways to resolve them within students. So, when it come to curriculum planning teacher is responsible in helping stuents to develop their knowledge and relationship with the content. Teacher is responsible in keeping track to student's progress and giving them feedbacks, in order for them to know about what to learn, why, and how to organize the teaching and learning and by how they can do to get better. And for the teacher to deliver curruculum, they're about to build lessons that includes simulations, experiments, case studies and other activities. Hence, that the teachers play an essential role in education, most especially to students they teach in the classroom, because teachers did not only guide students in academics or extracurricular activities, but teachers are also responsible for shaping a child's future.

Also, we are about to think of what are the roles of an administrators in curriculum planning? So, in relation of administrators to teachers, administrator ensures teachers have the equipment and resources necessary to deliver educationally effective curriculum. Administrators are responsible in formulation of the school's vision, philosophy, mission and objectives. They also have a hand in matters like planning events and implementing curriculum.

After, knowing the roles of teachers and administrators. What are the purposes of schooling? So, a school is an institution for educating children and it is where instruction is given in a particular discipline. For that definition of school, we can have some idea of what are the purposes of schooling. Schooling is about educating every person. It gives a chance to acquire knowledge on various fields of education such as people, literature, history, mathematics, politics, and other numerous subjects. The school provides a balanced education, which helps to promote a child's psychological and mental growth. Hence, the purpose of education can contribute to the betterment of society as a whole.

Knowing those ideas about the roles of a teacher and administration and the purpose of schooling. How well the curticulum prepare students to meet the current and future challenges of social and political order? So, as curriculum provides opportunity for students to apply their knowledge in a variety of contexts and conditions. I believe, that the curriculum will prepare students to current and future challenges of the social and political orders since, curriculum will help students to transfer their learning to new situations and better prepares them for future learning.
