Education is the human right to aquire knowledge. Although as per article 26, paragraph 3 of the UDHR

, parents have the right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children, most knowledge is aquired through government set curricula.

Building a curriculum is a very complicated task by itself, with active research being done in the field of Curriculum Theory. Besides educational goals, a curriculum might also be influenced by philosophical, psychological, or sociological reasoning. However, if we try to createa curriculum from a purely educational perspective, a set of dependencies and constraints quickly emerges. Those constraints can be modelled as a directed acyclic graph:Please note that this graph is work in progress
