Curriculum guidelines dispute reflects identity issue; Minister

Taipei, Aug. 7 (CNA) Education Minister Wu Se-hwa (???) said during a radio interview on Friday that the curriculum guidelines dispute reflects deep-seated differences over political positions, history and even national identity. Commenting on the protest against the revised curriculum guidelines for senior high school textbooks, Wu said he has discussed the dispute with historians and come to better understand the different positions on political issues, history and self identity in Taiwan. The curriculum guidelines issue could offer an opportunity for broader reconciliation, Wu said. If educational establishments can find a way to resolve such differences, it might also help to reduce conflict in wider Taiwanese society, he added. (By C.C. Chen and Lillian Lin)
