Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.

What we teach in our schools is one of the most important decisions we make as a nation. The knowledge passed on to the next generation the skills and abilities that we think children will need when they become adults, the attitudes and values we wish to instill in them are all at the core of the curriculum and can shape our society, let alone our economy, for years. I believe that the curriculum being followed in a nation should be similar but schools should have some flexibility /freedom to introduce or change it to a certain extent. In the following paragraphs, I will delve into most valuable reasons why I hold this stance.

First and foremost, I personally believe that there is a need to a uniform national curriculum for all students. It needs to be the same for all states and all grades. Some kids are way behind others because of the low standards their states or school set for them. So, the same national curriculum throughout the country will give same exposure to all its students and will ensure a stable and universal learning pattern.

Having a uniform curriculum is beneficial in many ways. Also, A National Curriculum allows making the curriculum familiar throughout the nation and it becomes easier to refer to it. There are many students who attend more than one school during their lifetime. A common national curriculum is very important for such students who leave one school and join another at a different place. When a child moves from one state to another they should be able to fall back into class with little to no issues.

The idea of states sharing this core of standards also makes for easier inter-state transitions and collaboration. Now, students in one state will be learning the same core principles as students in another; plus, if a student moves to a new state, he won’t be confronted with a new set of skills to master. And in today’s increasingly connected teacher network, having a common set of standards to collaborate off of means teachers can speak the same language coast to coast.

Once completed, student competes for a seat in desired universities by giving entrance test. If there is different curriculum prevailing in different parts of a country, an entrance test would not be a fair yardstick to measure the student efforts, knowledge or passion but would be testing the standards of the curriculum they have studied in their school. An implementation of the same national curriculum will give equal privilege to all students. Also when Individuals enter universities with nearly the same degree of experience and knowledge. No one lags behind so much to be pressed by not being ready for heavy concepts of courses, nor is she/he so ahead that the learning process becomes boring for that individual. Therefore, a united national curriculum helps the educator to better make educational plans for the students.

The commitment to develop a national curriculum means that the individual and combined efforts of states and territories can focus on how students learning can be improved to achieve the national goals, regardless of individual circumstances or school location. Greater attention can be devoted to equipping young Australians with those skills, knowledge, and capabilities necessary to enable them to effectively engage with and prosper in society, compete in a globalized world and thrive in the information-rich workplaces of the future.


In the end, I would I like to conclude that a uniform pattern, on the whole, is very important at a national level. However, at the same time, schools should not be bound to follow it blindly and should be able to make certain changes that help the students in

That is not a well thought out essay. You need no more than two or three well-developed body paragraphs. Look up the structure of a general-to-specific body paragraph, including the use of supporting sentences and examples.
