Indonesian government revises text after Catholic complaint
July 29, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: The government of Indonesia plans to revise a textbook on civic education, after the country’s Catholic bishops complained of a doctrinal inaccuracy.

The government’s ministry of education has announced that the text will be withdrawn and corrected.
