What is Merdeka Curriculum?
The Merdeka Belajar Curriculum is a flexible curriculum framework that focuses on essential materials and developing students' character and competencies. The main characteristic of the curriculum that supports the recovery of this learning is project- based learning for the development of soft skills and character according to the profile of Pancasila Students.
Students focus on essential material so that they have sufficient time to study in depth various basic competencies such as literacy and numeracy. Teachers are more flexible to carry out differentiated learning according to the abilities of students, adapt it to local contexts, and content.
In the end, the guarantee for the continuity of the Independent Learning Curriculum lies with teachers themselves. The role of teachers remains at the center of educational processes.
