Dear scientific workers, researchers and professionals from the field of pre-university education. Almost a decade after the beginning of the curriculum reform and five years since the beginning of the implementation in all schools, the challenges and complaints of students, teachers and parents are daily.
There are still uncertainties and dilemmas about specific aspects of the content, approach and implementation of the new CC.

The studies of recent years, related to the curriculum reform in Kosovo, mainly have a concentration of thematic treatment of the aspects, related to the preparations for the implementation of the curriculum, its piloting, the extent of implementation, the challenges in implementation, etc., without a in-depth focus on addressing aspects of curricular overload.
OECD countries have carried out an analysis of the overload in education (Curriculum Overload: A Way Forward, OECD (2020)). The study addresses aspects of curricular overload in four dimensions, which can serve as guidance for other educational contexts and systems.

The treatment of curricular overload and its impact on the accessibility of students, on the well-being of students and teachers, in various thematic aspects, practical and theoretical, providing scientific evidence and opening the professional and scientific debate on strategies and opportunities to influence the determination of the following policies on this matter. The conference is open to all interested parties and experts in the fields of curriculum implementation and reform. A real overview of these aspects is added value for decision-makers and the direction of the development of the educational system.
