Changes in the School Curriculum in Albania

Shqipe Haxhihyseni

Abstract


The organizing of schools, college and more further education has been associated with the ideas of the same sets of courses which the educational institution offers, called: the school curriculum. The curriculum can also be considered as the interaction of teachers, students and knowledge. In other words, curriculum is what actually happens in the classroom between the participants preparing or/and evaluating. In Albania’s schools, the curriculum changes very often and almost every year in the two last decades , something new is added, but soon it will be fundamentally reformulated, the biggest change being the making of the primary school 6 years and what should be middle school, 3 years, unlike now where the system is based on a 5 + 4 years of pre high-school education. But will this change improve the quality of teaching? Should there be made any changes at all? To achieve these goals on the Albanian education, the National Pre-University Education Strategy describes the way that this change would improve the system. Solutions consist in reviewing and studying the changes the system itself has made and if it has brought to better results, as the changing of the syllabus and school texts. Is the Albanian School prepared for this change?
