An educational system depends upon a curriculum to systematize and execute the process of education. Curriculum is a channel that helps teachers and other agents to impart education to approaching generations. There is a lot of difference between theory and practice that is why only experts are not enough to develop a curriculum unless and until it involves practitioners who have relevant and sufficient experience of teaching and learning to develop curriculum at a grass root level. No doubt it is a very difficult and a hard nut to crack like task that the developers of curriculum has to face while fitting a curriculum into a specific context under certain conditions.

Keywords: Educational system, curriculum development, Pakistan.
