“Life Skills” included in Curriculum

MoEYS plans to include the new course called “Life Skills” into the curriculum from grade 1 to 12. The curriculum covers issues ranging from reproductive health to gender identity and self-determination, LGBT rights, prevention of HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases, and prevention of gender-based violence, etc. The course also covers the issues pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, which will be taught to students from grade 5. The curriculum is seen as an important step in combating discrimination against the LGBT community in Cambodia. MoEYS is drafting the textbook for the 2018-19 academic years.
