  19. 19. Mr. Shi Hai, a SUSI 2011 teacher from China consents that the curriculum meets the needs of the students, the job market , the community and the minorities in his country. For instance when asked on the involvement of other people in the redesigning of curriculum, he provided no answers, but most revealing , he said yes to the fact that politics get in the way of curriculum practices even though he proved no explanation or description as to how or why. When asked about the use of technology in the curriculum, he stated that it depended on the different areas taken into account. In some places it is possible to enjoy cutting edge technology while in others it is not. One thing is clear, reading Mr. Shi Hai’s answers, one can safely conclude that the curriculum redesign in China faces some difficulties which need to be addressed just like in many other countries. For instance the issue of political turmoil getting in the way of effective curriculum implementation or the lack of civic engagement derived from it. CASE STUDY: CHINA
  20. 20. CASE STUDY: INDIA  The respondent from India, Mr. Abraham John gave a similar response to the one given by Mr. Shi Hai, the respondent from China. He painted the same picture of inadequate use of technology in curriculum implementation and or redesign. Even when he acknowledges some participation by stake holders, their participation is eroded by political turmoil. Hence, disempowering the very stake holders mentioned earlier on have indeed played a significant role in curriculum re-design.  It is therefore safe to conclude that even India faces challenges when it comes to matters regarding curriculum re-design.
