There are many stakeholders in education system each of whom needs to


play his role effectively in order to help all our children learn better and reach
their maximum potential. Those stakeholders play various roles and engage
at different levels in the education system; but they share the common goal
of educating students so that they become successful citizens. Standards
and assessment represent only one part of an education system. Other parts
of the education system include student, curricula, textbook content,
parents, administrators, teachers, society. The statement, which is studentcentered, outlines the roles and qualities we expect of each stakeholder. With
this statement there will be a common understanding of the type of
partnerships that can be undertaken and how the respective roles can be
fulfilled. At the heart of this statement is the ultimate aim of motivating all
our children to achieve the desired outcomes of Education. Alignment is also
emphasised here; because all stakeholders should be aligned horizontally
and vertically. In the following, picture we can see this alignment and
engagement:
1. Student: I believe that number one of the stakeholders refers to student
since other stakeholder will not succeed without the learner; our education
system is students-centered. The common goal is to educate our children to
be useful in the society, have the spirit of caring and sharing, stand firmly by
what is right, value education and to get the most out of the school
experience.
2. Textbook and assessment designers: the curriculum and state
standards brought to life through textbooks. The textbook is a major
indicator of what to plan; it is also a significant source of planning aids.
Assessment also should be aligned horizontally to the standards and
vertically to the education policies and student achievement to ensure that
assessment is a trustworthy source of data.
3. Teachers: as curriculum implementer since he writes a lesson plan daily,
prepares activities for the students to do, promote creativity and innovation
in the students, motivate and challenge students, care deeply for the
character and moral development of students by word and example,
addresses the learners goals and needs by creating experiences from where
the students can learn. The teacher as a decision maker enriches and
modifies the curriculum to suit the learners developmental stages. Also
teacher role is very crucial since the unsuccessful implementation of the
curriculum becomes the root of educational failure.
4. Principals: they could be seen as policies translators and implementers.
Their role is to organize and add harmony to the education process, lead by
example, conveying a deep sense of mission, build a supportive community
by forging links with parents, alumni and the community, and facilitate
sharing of vision with parents and students. They are also responsible for
providing the appropriate environment for learners.
