Abstract: The purposes of this study are two-fold. First, it responds to the call of Stabback (2016) in “What makes a quality curriculum?” (Current and critical issues in the curriculum and learning IBE-UNESCO) to contextualize UNESCO’s framework to gauge a curriculum quality under the frame of UNESCO’s Sustainable Development Goal 4. Second, the aforementioned tool would be employed to evaluate the curriculum of a private primary school in Vietnam. The findings of this study would provide implications for Vietnamese policymakers and school managers and teachers. Other countries might also use a similar approach to gauge the quality of their curriculum.
