The government plans to introduce the 2013 curriculum for grades 1, IV, VII and X in July. However, to date the government’s proposal to House of Representatives (DPR) Commission X for additional funding of Rp 684 billion has not been approved. The total budgetary funding required for implementation of the curriculum is Rp 2.4 trillion, the bulk of which consists of recurring expenditure of Rp 1,740 trillion.
Vice President Boediono said that the implementation of the new curriculum should not be done in a hasty manner, although it would still need to be introduced this year.
