Teaching the Curriculum

Given the complex relationships between formal curricula, political power, and the social order, what agency do classroom teachers have in enacting curriculum?

Teachers do not have a ton of power when it comes to making curriculum or implementing it. Some teachers may be asked to help have a say in parts of a new curriculum but curriculums are not designed but strictly teachers. Teachers have about 50% of the say in implementing curriculum because they can follow the indicators to their own discretion. They may have other ideas on how to set forth the outcomes.
