The article discusses the challenges that come across while changing the curriculum. It mentions that curriculum design does not face problem with schools or students rather it becomes matter of social conflict. It states various scenarios that occur during curriculum design including agency fracture which means disconnection between espoused policy and policy enactment, system confusion that occurs when people are hired for making change and policy amnesia is lack of teachers.
