ABSTRACT
The article suggests the use of a more flexible and positive horizontal philosophy in which the expert and teacher coordinate their respective talents in a team effort toward curriculum development and revitalization. The proposed concept might be prefaced by the principle that curriculum improvement is most productive when the specialists involved think of themselves as service people rather than production experts. It was suggested that the curriculum expert at the state level should be constantly moving from school district situation to school district situation, advertising the fact that as a state representative he has access to certain teacher aids which can be made available to district curriculum co-ordinators as they determine the specific needs of their schools.
