Education can be described as a contribution to the formation of something that will have a long-lasting effect on the people’s mind and faculties. The aim of this article is to review previous research work, identify and discuss the various ideas and information necessary to be considered and involved in curriculum development and multicultural education. When developing a curriculum, it is of importance to consider the dimensions of education, the process of effective teaching, assessment and evaluation, practice and implementation of teaching approaches, understanding of curriculum development and its concept, and multicultural education. Society’s values and beliefs are translated into educational objectives through the curriculum. The curriculum is a document that conveys the ideal positions about the type of education required in diverse cultural contexts in an environment. Different literature was reviewed to synthesize the opinion and facts derived by researchers, educationist, and stakeholders in the development of the curriculum. The article illustrates the importance of appropriate curriculum development involving all stakeholders and the integration of multicultural education in the curriculum. The article identifies the scope for further research in the process of 21st-century curriculum development on the effect of involving all education stakeholders in curriculum development and the need for capacity development of instructor providers to enable them foster unity in diversity.

Key words: Curriculum, development, education, assessment, multicultural, culture, values, teaching, learning.
