ABSTRACT
The literature on official and implemented curriculum suggests that the greater the amount of control that teachers have over their curricula, the better their students will perform. However, the Third International Mathematics and Science Study administered in 1999 (TIMSS-R) reveals an interesting relationship between students' science and math scores and the amount of control teachers have over the curriculum, which sheds new light on this much discussed topic. Analyses using this data suggest that a direct and positive relationship between teacher curricular control and student achievement is either inappropriate, false, or both. Instead, each nation's educational system contextualizes and constrains the relationship between teacher curricular control and student achievement within that nation.
