RSBI School Activities Must Continue
TEMPO.CO, Jakarta: Despite Constitutional Court's decision to disband schools that fall under the category of international schools and/or international pilot schools (RSBI), The Minister of Education and Culture, Mohammad Nuh, asserted that teaching and learning activities in said schools must not stop. Nuh emphasized that the status cancellation of the RSBIs will not affect the Ministry's spirit to improve the quality of schools. "Even without RSBI, access to education must not decline," he asserted. Yudi Mulyanto, Head of the Jakarta Education Agency, guarantees that the quality schools will not drop despite the revoked RSBI status. Contrary to the Jakarta Education Agency, Head of Education Department of Medan Rajab Lubis disagrees with RSBI and SBI dissolution. Nevertheless, Lubis is ready to restore the status of the two types of RSBI schools in compliance with the Ministry of Education's instructions. In Surabaya, rejection over the dissolution of RSBI comes from Surabaya Mayor Tri Rismaharini. She strongly believes that RSBI schools in Surabaya must be maintained as there has never been any case of discriminatory admissions. Unlike other areas that set a high cost to enter RSBI schools, in Surabaya the total operational and investment costs are entirely borne by the local government.
