Abstract The present research paper discusses the curriculum of high school English language textbooks in the context of ideology. The idea of education is not innocent, secular, and ideologically neutral rather it is more biased. Education is full of ideologies. The ruling class that is in power controls the curriculum, textbooks and education system. These influential people manipulate society according to their ideology through education. Schools, textbooks and curricula are the central tools or agencies to transform dominant ideology into society through education. The ruling class people control the education system because they have hidden their benefits in it. Education is used to alter the ideology of dominant people in society. We consider school knowledge as the highest pure knowledge form and accept it without question. Therefore, the dominant class who is in power takes advantage of this situation. And considering this the current research paper critically examines the high school English language textbook in the context of Ideology.
