This article emanated from a study on challenges institutions of learning faced in the implementation of a curriculum. Data was collected through document analysis and interviews with selected teachers in secondary schools of Zambia. The information collected was analysed thematically using emerging themes. Findings revealed that there were several challenges in the implementation of curriculum. Some of these challenges included inadequate teaching and learning materials, lack of funding, inadequate school facilities, inadequate quality and quantity of teaching staff, distance to school and unfriendly conditions of service. The study recommended that the government of Zambia and school authorities should ensure that basic factors that can be addressed within their means are attended to as soon as possible.
