ABSTRACT
The article assesses the authority responsible for curriculum planning in schools. The author claims that curriculum planning is essentially a specialized task, properly to be carried on by staffs of vocationally specialized staffs of curricular experts. Furthermore, proper curricular planning is now possible only by the same general procedures generally used in extra-school life, especially in industry. Moreover, only curricular specialists are capable of constructing functional curriculums. Furthermore, it is noted that only few special curricular workers employed by the various school systems and the professors of curriculum in the schools of education are far too few for the curricular work needed.
