With more advancedfacilities students could learn more thoroughly and gaining more understanding,especially in subjects that need more experiment than just hearing fromteacher.
Equal opportunity in education, the same opportunity toreceive education in a place indiscriminately shows the quality of education isgood, if the only one that could receive education is the rich, the quality ofeducation in that place is still in favor of the rich with that the quality ofeducation is poorly calculated even with adequate facilities and teachers, whatis the use of facilities and good teachers without equal opportunities for thepoor. Curriculum,curriculum is a learning plan that contains objectives and teaching materialsin educational institutions, therefore with a good curriculum and prepared inaccordance with the state of education, the curriculum can be a very importantbenchmark in knowing the quality of education. So based on every factormentioned above education could be assessed from many aspect to define itsquality, after we could determine our education quality we could begin toimprove the quality of education from which aspects are not met in our place,if we can improve the quality of education and maintain it then the progress ofa country has been ascertained.How Curriculum Affect EducationCurriculumis considered the “heart” of any learning institution which means that schoolsor universities cannot exist without a curriculum.
