MOE sets up new division for character and values education

The Ministry of Education (MOE) is setting up a division that focuses on character and values education as part of an organisational revamp. Under the changes to its Professional Wing, a Student Development Curriculum Division would be set up. The new division will 'pull together expertise from within the Ministry and give greater focus on areas such as character and citizenship, values education and co-curricular activities,' said the MOE in a press release on Friday. In recognition of the role parents and the community play in education, the MOE will also set up a new Partnerships in Education Office (PEO) to better engage them.
