The relationship between school curricula and the prevailing needs and views of a society is important in considering sociological perspectives accommodating different forms of curriculum development and design. Through such perspectives, issues of accountability and responsiveness are relevant and significant to curriculum decision-making. Teachers attempt to present relevant and applicable curricula to children within the context of primary schooling which is determined by the government. Recognising society’s diverse demands and influences raises questions of continuing appropriateness of different forms of curricula within periods of escalating social change and development. However, it would be a naive and simplistic analysis from a sociological perspective, if the needs, influences and demands of society were accepted unquestioningly and without some examination of their exact nature and relevance.
