This research report on a case study of curriculum development at the school level is very much concerned with the practical aspects of curriculum and change. If things are considered static or lifeless or solitary, then it is hard to imagine change ever occurring within them. Institutions such as schools, and the cultures of those institutions, clearly express relations that are marked by cause and effect. this relational development allows for continuous change and change signified through sudden surges. Such has been the case at (what we will call) Carpenter High School.
