Assessing curricula, Teacher practices, Quality of life.

The current study was aimed at assessing the curriculum of secondary schools in the light of the requirements for enhancing the quality of life of the students. The components of quality of life were described to build a list of standards and indicators. Additionally, a questionnaire assessing the dimensions of mental (cognitive and emotional), physical, digital, and social health, and environmental awareness was prepared. A descriptive-analytical approach was used on a sample of 258 teachers and educational supervisors in the Tabuk region. The results of the study indicated that there are shortcomings in the secondary school curricula in developing standards and indicators of components of quality of life. Also, results indicated that secondary school curricula incorporated very few practices needed to improve students’ quality of life. Difference in statistical significance, due to variables (core subject, job, gender, and years of experience), was found to be less than 0.01.
