KÁSLER: NEW NAT'L CURRICULUM 'CHILD-FOCUSED, PATRIOTIC'

 

The new national curriculum (Nat) is a “document for the 21st century, which is child-focused and at the same time shows a patriotic approach,” Human Resources Minister Miklós Kásler said. He told a press conference that the details for specific areas of education have been completed and can be read on the Educational Authority homepage. The new Nat has been finalised as a result of extensive social and professional consultations and it is based on professional consensus, he added. The document sets out to make education more modern, effective and efficient, he said. The amended Nat and the details for specific areas form a unified whole, with the latter specifying the tasks for development, and detailing the knowledge and most important concepts that must be taught, he added.
