Good curriculum plays a crucial role in forging life-long learning competencies, social attitudes and skills for the learners. Besides it is self-evident that, curriculum plays an important role in shaping a nation’s future. For obvious reasons, it has been the focal point of stakeholders’ interests for decades. Formulating an effective curriculum has been a decade-long pursuit for many nations’ education-history. For similar reasons countries like Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia stand at a historic threshold of decision making regarding their countries curriculum. Both the countries share some common challenges with respect to their curriculum development and implementation from the various sectors of society. All these education-challenges and..... all the experiences that occur within the school or other learning context- what is intended and what actually becomes a reality in the sphere of curriculum and teaching (Pinar, 2000) are the subjects of this paper.
