ABSTRACT
The article talks about the educational philosophy in designing the curriculum. The educational philosophy answers the question: what are we educating students for?, in which they based the design of the curriculum. Teachers help in the designing of the course curriculum in which they focus from long-range goals to operationally defined behaviors to pre-service tasks. They also consider if their graduates can be expected to breathe classroom life into an educational philosophy. Several goals of a teacher education program were mentioned.
