The article presents information on the need for curriculum evaluation and change in the United States. Curriculum development adds breadth and depth to the educational program in the United States. To assure the success of the educational revolution, there should be involvement, consultation and continuing dialog among all concerned groups. With all members of the society, lies the responsibility for an effective school curriculum for children from primary level to adulthood. The school curriculum should be designed in such a way that it helps a child to grow into an effective adult in the society. Through continuous interplay of ideas among concerned individuals, school curriculum in a democratic society can be established. Children, parents, and educators play significant roles in the curriculum development process. In the realm of curriculum development, children function continuously, both directly and indirectly.
