Who makes the curriculum?

When first thinking about who made the curriculum, I thought that it was the people who worked within the school. Such as teachers or board members, or I would hope so at least…

After the reading, I realized that I was very wrong. It is actually the people who have never worked in schools who are making the curriculums, which I find absolutely insane. Politics and government have such a big impact of the curriculum, but they have never worked in a school nor tried to figure out what the students need in their curriculum. Therefore, it would make more sense to have parents and especially students help make the curriculum so that it revolves around what the students actually need to be learning rather than what the government thinks they should be learning.
