In this chapter, various initiatives have been proposed, including a reinforcement of the school-based curriculum policy, a global, comprehensive curriculum reform toward Learning to Learn (LTL), as well as a heightened awareness of the need to enforce multicultural education through the curriculum and teaching. Moreover, policies such as those that lead to quality assurance, standardization, and accountability in education also influence the development of school curriculum in this global age. This chapter also briefly discusses the issues thus put forward.
