Abstract: This study was primarily designed to develop principles and evaluation criteria of curriculum in community education. Before these could be developed, it was necessary to reassess commonly well-known and accepted works of community education theorists in order to deduce generic features and, thusly, identify the means and ends envisioned by community educators. Community education can be defined as a hypothesis which attempts to explain a relationship where participants interact in certain ways and use particular methods in a location over time to achieve self-determined transformative change and social justice. Therefore, curriculum development in community education ought to mirror facets of this definition. In this study, curricular experiences would be designed to have these features: (1) community-based study which has an extra-community awareness; (2) lifelong teaching and learning; (3) proactive problem-solving; (4) educational activism; (5) participatory democracy; (6) intergenerational grouping; and, (7) egalitarianism.
