Involve Professionals in Curriculum making and Textbook preparation

School curriculum and textbook making should not be a domain reserved for teachers. I say this because I find the quality of curriculum and textbooks far below average at present and the teachers who made them have done a substandard job.

Professional like Engineers, Doctors, Agriculturalists, Psychologists, Managers with MBA degrees (If possible top successful managers should be requested to participate) and even from dance/drama should be included in curriculum preparation and writing of textbooks. Teachers have limited experiences in any field and their skills, experience and knowledge are not sufficient to write school textbooks.

Treating school curriculum as a small thing is not good for the society.
