The Education and Culture Ministry and the House of Representatives Commission X on education and youth affairs have agreed that the new curriculum for 2013 will focus on the building of students’ character.
Although the commission has yet to approve the draft by the ministry, chairman Agus Hermanto said the new curriculum would consist mostly of civic education, history and religion.
