Teaching, learning and the curriculum eist in a symbiotic relationship - what is to be taught will have a significant impact on how it is taught and how learners receive it. This relationship in turn will determine the nature of school leadership and the culture of the school. Compare, for example, the culture of a school based on Froebel's ideas and those of a school focused on traditional academic disciplines. Compare the role of a teacher in a context where the emphasis is on very young children learning through self-directed play with a context of a formalised curriculum based on measurable outcomes.
