The curriculum is a base on which students fulfill their objectives and goals. It is of two types: Bounded and Extensive.

A bounded curriculum is one that is taught in schools and universities, whereas an extensive curriculum has no boundaries. The curriculum is very important in the education system. It helps the students in many ways.

Before prescribing the curriculum of any subject, the curriculum schedulers look at the present situation and then decide it. Many academics have given their opinion to define the curriculum such as Frobel, Monroe, Cunningham, Henry, etc.

Vijay Gupta

Hello everyone, My name is Vijay Gupta and I belong to a very small town that is situated in district Hardoi, which is in Uttar Pradesh. 1. Education – I’ve completed my primary education from a private school that is situated in my hometown and upper primary, matric and higher secondary education have been completed from a government college. Well, I was an average student till class 5th, but I accelerated my preference towards studies from class six. Consequently, I passed out many classes with good positions. Even I passed out 12th with good marks ( 405/500 ) and topped my college. Due to getting good marks, I got a cheque of 500 rupees and was rewarded by the Principal of my college. After completing my 12th, I prepared twice for IIT ( Indian Institute of Technology ) from Aakash institute, but unfortunately, I failed to get selected into the best IIT colleges. But during the preparation, I was being graduated from CSJMU Kanpur. I completed my graduation in 2016 and now I’m pursuing an educational degree ( B.Ed. ). 2. Profession – Although I love teaching, but I also do blogging. Both are my favorite jobs.
