ABSTRACT
The purpose of the study was to determine the extent and level of involvement of high school students in curriculum development, according to students and school personnel, and to establish what they believed to be the ideal level of involvement. The study involved 476 student and 98 teachers and administrators. This was a descriptive study utilizing statistical measures to analyze the data. The overall conclusions drawn from the study were: (a) students feel they have important contributions to make in curriculum development in the schools, and (b) the meagerness of student involvement in curriculum development suggests that conflict exists in the perceptions of school personnel.
