TAIPEI – Taiwan’s government promised to review its controversial new school curriculum
Tuesday after protests by students who have slammed it as “China-centric”.
But angry students who have been camped out in the compound of the education ministry after storming it on Friday have vowed to stay, saying their demands have not been met.
The crisis was triggered by the suicide of young activist Lin Kuan-hua who opposed the curriculum changes.
Smaller protests against the adjustments have been going on for months, including students breaking into the education ministry building.
Talks with Education Minister Wu Se-hwa broke down on Monday in an emotional meeting with students, who have threatened to escalate their actions. [FULL STORY]
