    is to be

    Children from this age follow the National Curriculum that dictates what is to be taught at each age and when the children will be tested.

    When do you use "to be to be"? I heard that in cases when someone wants to say it will be very likely true, but it doesn't make much sense in this sentence, does it?

    What does the sentence mean? Why is "s to be" used? Could you write some more examples of usage of it?

    Here, it's an absolute future- it will be taught. It's a formal way of talking about a certain future.
