That's a contradiction. A government official has no power over a free market.

So if a government official is telling a school to adhere to a certain curriculum, you have a regulated market. In a free market the school could make up its own mind what to teach. It then would be up to the students to see if the curriculum meets their demands and it would not be up to the government official.
