The ‘hidden curriculum’ represents the details that relate to the topic of how to be normal. Our society is diverse and students are divided into categories, and we stigmatize behavior as well. An educators’ task is to find a solution of how to unsurpassed present the regular school stuff. Although teachers are not supposed to teach their students about the socially acceptable, common behavior, they find themselves doing so.
At school, we may learn about an extra meaning to the things that surround our lives. Only a tiny proportion of teachers can dig deeper and see beyond the standard school curriculum. They might think what other material to choose and what might be best for their students. Teachers who stick only to textbooks within the school curriculum can become prejudiced.
Every student should feel important and should not think that their life is wasted. The students need to understand that they have worth and value in them. There are no good or bad students; and educators should offer support to all of them. Schools need to convince the young people that any subject and job are meaningful.
A lesson from the ‘hidden curriculum’ might concern a person’s appearance. Teenagers, in particular, fight hard to prove their worth. Teachers are often prejudiced to a strikingly bad appearance since it can affect a young person’s life. A weird hair cut and behavior might suggest that the teenager uses crack that is not acceptable at school.
