This chapter describes the process that leads to the formulation of a curriculum reform, which is often messy as comprehensive curriculum reform could be addressing a wide range of different economic, political and social goals. The chapter also describes the challenges that curriculum developers face while they try to find coherent solutions by making a bridge between the often ambitious and diverse policy goals and the realities of schooling in Hong Kong.
