Pioneering Schools of International Standard Burden Underprivileged Students
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Khairil Anwar, the Ministry of Education and Culture’s research and development division director, says that Pioneering Schools of International Standard (RSBI) are having difficulty meeting the quota for the number of underprivileged students.
“It is difficult to fulfill the existing quota; but not in all schools. Some schools are already full such as the ones in Surabaya,” said Khairil at the parliamentary complex in Senayan on Wednesday afternoon.
Khairil added that the ministry has yet to thoroughly review the issue. Khairil said he suspects the RSBI’s high-profile image has made underprivileged students hesitant to register. “They’re afraid [of the costs] even before they register,” Khairil continued.
