House proposes Pancasila lessons at schools

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Wed, 06/01/2011 12:30 PM

The House of Representatives has proposed that schools once again have lessons in Pancasila, the state ideology of Indonesia. “Pancasila was once used as a reference for all laws, but after the introduction of the reform era [in 1998], it’s been marginalized,” House Speaker Marzuki Alie said Wednesday. House deputy speaker Priyo Budi Santoso concurred. “I am shocked to see the Pancasila has been dropped as a subject at schools. I ask the government to revive Pancasila as an obligatory subject in schools,” he said. The five tenets of Pancasila basically comprise the following: belief in one God, humanity, unity, deliberation for representation and social justice.

– House proposes Pancasila lessons at schools = DPR mengusulkan pelajaran Pancasila di sekolah
– The House of Representatives has proposed that schools once again have lessons in Pancasila, the state ideology of Indonesia = DPR telah mengusulkan sekolah sekali lagi memiliki pelajaran pancasila, sebagai ideologi negara Indonesia.
– reference for all laws = referensi untuk semua hukum

– I ask the government to revive Pancasila as an obligatory subject in schools = saya meminta pemerintah untuk menghidupkan kembali Pancasila sebagai mata pelajaran wajib di sekolah
