Alberta has released an updated draft of a new curriculum for primary students that focuses on emotional development as well as literacy and math skills.

Education Minister David Eggen says Albertans can discuss the revised kindergarten to Grade 4 curriculum with the government at two telephone town halls next week.

It will then be tested in selected schools next year and kick in across the board sometime in 2020.

The curriculum renews emphasis on basic literary and numeracy skills, includes instruction in financial literacy and will discuss age-appropriate concepts of consent in Grades 2, 3 and 4.
