Legislators had a negotiation and reached a conclusion. Schools are free to choose textbooks for 2015. How schools and teachers actually make their decisions is worth observing. They also recommended that Ministry of Education start a thorough review of the curriculum. This is more vague.
Although the consensus is a pragmatic political compromise, it should help reduce the tension and confrontation and prevent further tragedy. Because of the general election, political considerations are more complex. However, the students are tired and isolated. It is therefore right to use the parliament as a forum and a buffer. If the confrontation is extended into the election season, it is going to heightened the ideological conflict.
‘Legislators reached consensus on textbooks. Albeit a compromise, it should reduce tension. Students are tired.’
