Higher Education HP
[ PT WEB ]

Higher Education includes all forms of education after students graduate from Senior Secondary School (private and public). Higher Education is responsible for guaranteeing that students will achieve success in their future vocational and social activities. Effective communication between all parties; Higher Education, Senior and Junior Secondary Education is currently more important than ever so as to ensure that teacher training needs (which are rapidly changing) are being addressed. You can visit the Higher Education Homepage at PT WEB.



Senior Secondary HP
[ SLTA WEB ]

After three years at SLTP the Indonesian education system requires students to complete a further three years at a Senior Secondary School (SLTA) before they can participate in formal Tertiary Education at University level. There are many types of Senior Secondary Schools (SMA, SMUN, SMK, MAN, etc.) including; Public, Vocational, and Religious. It is probably important to note that in Indonesia the public school sector maintains dual vocational (SMK) and professional streaming (SMU). However, while the number of places in tertiary institutions remains inadequate and education is relatively expensive only a small proportion of SMU students actually participate. This poses some major questions as to the relevence of a purely academic SMU curriculum and the effeciency of a dual system. You can visit the the Senior Secondary Education Homepage at http://SLTA.Pendidikan.Net.



Primary & Junior Secondary
[ SLTP WEB ]

Indonesian Basic Education consists of nine years of compulsory education. However, in many provinces some students still do not attain an education beyond Primary School. While the number of students attending Primary Schools is generally high the standards of the schools themselves vary greatly. Building maintenance is a major issue. Communities generally don't appear to exhibit a "sense of ownership" and schools sometimes have gaping holes in walls and flooring. The two main determining factors that greatly affect a student's prospects for an education beyond Primary School are socio-economics and availability of places. After six years of Primary Education, at the age of about 12, students should enter Junior Secondary School (SLTP). Many Junior Secondary Schools are now developing very helpful intra and extra-curricular activities including some vocational training. You can visit the SD/SLTP homepage at SLTP WEB.

Teacher Beats Students Over Exam Issue

April 03, 2013 - Bogor. Six students in North Bogor received bruises and cuts after they were assaulted by the teacher in a fit of rage following their failure to prepare for an examination. The incident, involving 10th-graders from vocational school SMK PGRI 3 in Kedung Halang, is just the latest case of a teacher using violence to win the compliance of students and instill in them a sense of discipline....

50% of Kids Victims of Sex Abuse, Group Says

April 03, 2013 - Almost half of Indonesia’s children have fallen prey to instances of sexual harassment, according to a nongovernmental organization advocating children’s issues. The National Commission for Child Protection (Komnas Anak) claimed on Tuesday that about 50 percent of the country’s 21 million children had been victims of such abuse, though the figure excluded children who did not report their cases to the authorities....

A Better Curriculum Is of Little Use If Teaching Remains Dickensian

March 30, 2013 - For a long time, many people who have sought to improve education have complained about the teaching mentality that assumes students are merely empty bottles into which knowledge is poured. This complaint goes back a long way. Charles Dickens in his novel “Hard Times” (1854) wrote in the opening chapter of three characters who, looking at a Victorian classroom, saw students as “little vessels then and there arranged in order, ready to have imperial gallons of facts poured into them until they were full to the brim.”....

Editorial: Indonesia Must Overhaul Education or Fall Further Behind

March 27, 2013 - If Indonesia is to achieve its goal of being a top 10 global economy by 2050, it will have to be underpinned by an education system that produces the right talent and workforce. But as things stand today, that is highly unlikely given the outcome of a recent international business competition for students organized by German multinational Henkel. A team from Indonesia, unfortunately, did not manage to qualify for the finals.....

New School Curriculum 'Vulnerable to Corruption': Education Coalition

March 21, 2013 - The Coalition to Reject the 2013 Education Curriculum is planning to report to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) its findings on potential corruption practices linked to the new school curriculum, an activist said on Thursday. The coalition is composed of members of the Indonesia Corruption Watch, the Indonesia Teachers’ Union and several education observers. Febri Hendri, the ICW coordinator for public service monitoring, was quoted by the Tempo Interaktif online news portal as saying that the coalition believed the new curriculum provided too many opportunities for corruption....

Majority Of Disabled Lack Access To Education

March 19 2013 - Close to 70 percent of special needs children have no access to education, says the Education and Culture Ministry. The ministry said that only around 116,000 disabled children were currently enrolled in formal schools. “That number was only around 31 percent of the total number of special needs children in the country, which means that the government should work harder to ensure that these children have the same access to education as any other child would,” The ministry’s director for special education and special services, Mudjito, said on Monday....

Teachers, Parents File Petition Against New Curriculum to Education Ministry

March 16, 2013 - A group of educators, experts and parents have delivered a petition with more than 1,500 signatures to the Education Ministry, rejecting Indonesia’s new school curriculum which will see science and social studies dropped as core subjects in July. “[The new curriculum] will not answer the country’s education problems,” said Siti Juliantari Rachman, a researcher at Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW), on Friday. “This petition is a symbol of our rejection and was signed by more than 1,500 people who are against the implementation of the new curriculum.....”

Changes To Indonesian School Curriculum Raises Eyebrows

08 March 2013 - Can elementary school students learn about discipline from the behaviour of electrons? - This was what teachers have been asked to do, based on core competencies included in Indonesia's new national curriculum. It is to start in July this year. First to third grade elementary school students will no longer study science and social studies as separate subjects. Instead, they will become part of the Bahasa Indonesia language class. Critics say integrating science and language makes no sense....

The Myth Of Teacher's Training

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta (February 23 2013). As a logical consequence of the newly introduced 2013 curriculum, school teachers are obliged to enroll in a 52-hour training course as mandated by the Education and Culture Ministry. We need to underline here that since it is the mastery of the concepts in the curriculum that is the eventual goal, this incoming teacher training is only theoretically motivated... ...

National curriculum 2013: Should One-Size-Fits-All?

(February 23 2013) Do you like wearing a one-size-fits-all shirts? If you have a ?normal? size body, then you would adore such a shirt. But if you are relatively petite or large, you have to pass on this adorable shirt. The reason is simple, it does not fit you. So, is your body the problem? However, the term can also be used to describe a simplistic and reductive approach to a problem. This includes our recent curriculum change in schools...

New National Curriculum Leaves Teachers, Experts Confused

The Jakarta Post, (February 21 2013). The new curriculum, consisting of civic education and religion being integrated with science, was too complicated for teachers, let alone students to understand, said Retno Listyarti, the Indonesian Teachers Unions Federation (FSGI) secretary-general. ...teachers having only a few months to fully grasp the integrated subjects...

First RSBI, Next The International Undergraduate Programs?

January 27 2013, It is final that the so-called international-standard pilot project schools (RSBIs) and international-standard schools (SBIs) in Indonesia will be closed down by April 2013 (The Jakarta Post, Jan. 4, 2013). One of the main objections to the schools was their creation of social division among students, between the haves and the have-nots. It was too expensive for the have-nots...

Education Reform in Indonesia Likely to Backfire

January 11, 2013 - The decision by the Indonesian government to radically alter its current primary school curriculum by replacing science with classes focused on religion and courses that strengthen nationalism will have a generational impact that may prove to make the country less economically competitive and less attractive to foreign direct investment in the years ahead. The drastic changes in primary school curriculums in Indonesia’s public school system, slated for implementation this summer, could lead to greater persecution of the nation’s Catholic, Buddhist, and Protestant religious minority groups....

Indonesia Envisions More Religion in Schools

January 6, 2013 - JAKARTA — Annisa Nurul Jannah, 11, was learning about how devices transmit heat, sound and electricity. “I like science because it teaches me a lot,” the sixth grader at Petamburan 04, a school in a working-class part of Jakarta, said about her favorite subject. “I’d be sad if it was removed from school.” Millions of children in Indonesian elementary schools may no longer have separate science classes starting in June, the beginning of their next school year, if the government approves a curriculum overhaul that would merge science and social studies with other classes so more time can be devoted to religious education....

Teacher, Not Curriculum, Matters

January 05 2013. The imminent introduction of a new curriculum in 2013 will not provide any guarantees for resolving the current problems in education in the nation. A new curriculum is always a good notion. However, drawbacks invariably stem from implementation. Thus, what is urgent is not to change the curriculum, but to implement it. ...system to appraise its effectiveness...

Criticism of Indonesia's School Curriculum Keeps On Mounting

December 19, 2012 - Yogyakarta. Education authorities in Yogyakarta have rejected the Education Ministry’s new elementary school curriculum for 2013, saying that it violates prevailing laws and is of questionable quality. Wuryadi, head of the local education office, criticized the plan to drop science and social studies from the curriculum, saying on Monday that the move would be legally flawed because both subjects were mandatory under the 2003 National Education System Law. He also said the ministry’s proposal to integrate the two subjects into Indonesian language classes made no sense, arguing that they should have been merged with similar subjects....

INDONESIAN CURRICULUM 2013

"A Better Curriculum Is of Little Use If Teaching Remains Dickensian"

"For a long time, many people who have sought to improve education have complained about the teaching mentality that assumes students are merely empty bottles into which knowledge is poured. This complaint goes back a long way. Charles Dickens in his novel “Hard Times” (1854) wrote in the opening chapter of three characters who, looking at a Victorian classroom, saw students as “little vessels then and there arranged in order, ready to have imperial gallons of facts poured into them until they were full to the brim.”"

Firstly, the notion that the new curriculum is "A Better Curriculum" itself is very much under dispute...

"Teachers, Parents File Petition Against New Curriculum to Education Ministry"

"A group of educators, experts and parents have delivered a petition with more than 1,500 signatures to the Education Ministry, rejecting Indonesia’s new school curriculum which will see science and social studies dropped as core subjects in July. “The new curriculum will not answer the country’s education problems,” said Siti Juliantari Rachman, a researcher at Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW), on Friday. “This petition is a symbol of our rejection and was signed by more than 1,500 people who are against the implementation of the new curriculum.”"

When will our MoE realize that Corruption, Teacher Quality, Effective Methodology, and The Conditions In Our Schools are the most important issues (Priorities) to be addressed before we can hope to achieve Quality Education, not New Curriculum?

The Implementation Of Any Curriculum Will Fail If We Do Not Resolve The Key Issues Above First, Right? However, The Quality of Our Education Management Where "Corruption Occurs At All Levels Of The Ministry of National Education, Local Education Offices, and Schools" (ICW) Poses Many Obvious Additional Challenges.

"The Mode Of Corruption In The World Of Education Remains Unchanged"

"Indonesian Curruption Watch (ICW) Public Service Monitoring Researcher, Siti Juliantari Rachman, explains that there are indications of irregularities, and amongst others, changes in the budget three times, from Rp 684 billion to Rp 1.4 trillion and the latest being Rp 2.49 trillion". Therefore, it is justified, in the light of this very rushed curriculum, that the "Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Is Asked To Supervise Formulation Of The 2013 Curriculum Program"

"Implementation of Curriculum 2013 Influenced By Politics"

"INILAH.COM, Jakarta - Every policy issued by the government in 2013 is evaluated by its political nuances. This is because 2013 as regarded as a political year (we have national elections coming up in 2014). This is the assessment of the Chairman of the DPP political and Cultural Nasdem Party, S Sonny Soeharso. According to him, the implementation of curriculum 2013 which seems to be very rushed is due to politics.

"From experience, curriculum changes are greatly influenced by 'political heavies'. We know this year is a political year. Drastic budget changes and rushed implementation, "said Sonny, after the Political Education and Culture Focus Group Discussion" Ref: Nasional.Inilah.Com

Corruption Is Education Development Enemy #1 In Indonesia

"Fight Corruption, Develop Democracy In Schools"
(Anti-Corruption Program A La MoE)

"Sekolah Harapan (School of Hope), Schools Free From Corruption" and a discussion about "Fighting Corruption, Develop Democracy in Our Schools". Wednesday, 9th of February, 1pm in Building A Level III, Ministry of Education, Jakarta. Speakers : Fasli Jalal (Deputy Minister), Teten Masduki (SecGen TII), Ani Sutjipto (Fisip UI), Gino Vanollie (Kadis pendidikan Way Kanan), Ade Manadin (Principal Tegal Gede 2-Garut) : Information from Pak Edi Subkhan.

STRATEGY: Repeat an Old Program (SBM from the 1990s) that the MoE has failed dismally to implement in schools at the national level till the present, which is possibly due to the fact that "Corruption occurs at all levels including the MoE, Regional Education Offices, and Schools" (ICW) "District Education Offices have become the institutions that are most corrupt, and are the largest source of corrupt individuals compared to other institutions." (ICW: 5 Years Analysis of Eradicating Corruption in Education).

The School-Based Management (SBM) System which is Excellent, can only be implemented effectively at the national level by a Central Management (MoE) that is "Clean" and "Professional" (Main Roles being; Planning, Coordination, Diligent Monitoring, and especially Protect the Program so that Budgets do not just become the Victims of Further Corruption), which is Implemented by the Regional Education Offices that are "Clean", "Dedicated", and "Professional" (Free from Corruption and ready Mentally to Support the Schools).

How could we possibly hope to successfully implement SBM as a strategy for addressing corruption before we begin to eliminate the curruption at the MoE and the Regional Education Offices? We believe that this new project is just another indicator that the MoE is still not serious about reducing or eliminating corruption in our education sector.

From the response to my question to the panel on Wednesday which included the Deputy Minister of Education Mr. Fasli Jalal, "When are we going to begin to reduce the corruption at the Ministry of Education and the Regional Education Offices?" - which wasn't answered, I could only assume that the question couldn't be answered (or noone was willing to try to answer the question). However, this is the most important issue if the MoE is ever really serious about reducing corruption in the education sector.

We believe that this new program (that really isn't new) only appears to be yet another concept that without addressing the corruption within the MoE and the Regional Education Offices beforehand can not be perceived as a serious solution for corruption at the national level. Evenmore, if it becomes a "project" it may even open-up new opportunites for large-scale curruption if the MoE doesn't effectively monitor and manage the budget.

Education Enemy #1In Indonesia the common term for corrupt individuals is "rats" (tikus). If we only engage in activities at the "small rat" level (Schools - That are also Victims), the large rats will certainly be happy because they also know that serious corruption reduction can not be achieved at the school level without first improving management and reducing corruption at the MoE and Regional Education Offices. So the task will be endless, and the "Big Rats" will continue to remain undisturbed.

Can working at the school level possibly be effective for addressing the key issue; "District Education Offices have become the institutions that are most corrupt, and are the largest source of corrupt individuals compared to other institutions."?
ICW: (5 Year Analysis of Corruption in Education)

If a school that is attempting to eliminate corruption in their school wants to resist or report corruption at the MoE or Regional Education Offices, who do they report to?

This is the main problem - Low Quality Education Management.


Phillip Rekdale (Jakarta)
P.S. When I began this network of websites (approx 150 sites) anti-corruption wasn't on my agenda. However, corruption tends to undermine whatever we attempt to achieve in the field : Article




ICT is the most "Inappropriate Technology" for Learning
in the Indonesian Public Education Sector

(Phillip Rekdale)

ICT is the most "Inappropriate Technology" for Quality Public Education and Learning. ICT threatens to destroy creativity and innovation through programmed learning (e-Learning - Behaviorism) and only extends the current problems - memory-based learning with controlled outcomes (education for robots). It also suffers from extremely limited penetration (ratio of "1 computer for 2,000 studens" (1:2,000)), there is practically no infrastructure in our schools, implementation is expensive and maintenance costs are extremely high, many school budgets are insufficient to maintain the schools themselves, let alone hundreds of computers (tens of millions of computers at the national level).... Ref: "Appropriate Technology"

"Tens of thousands of schools are in poor repair and many are collapsing including 70% schools in DKI Jakarta - In Jakarta alone, 179 Schools are not Fit for Use! - Almost 80% of School Buildings in Pesawaran Need Serious Repairs, etc-etc-etc","The total number of (Primary and Junior Secondary School) classrooms that need urgent repairs has risen from 640,660 (2000-2004) to 739,741 (2004-2008) by 15,5 percent." (ICW) - The situation is becoming worse, not improving! Ref: "5 Steps To Quality Education"

One Very Significant Current Concern is that even Overseas AID Agencies are now being influenced by the Rhetorical Nonsense from ICT Consultants. Students need to learn ICT Skills for Vocational and Academic Purposes (Give Them Computers), However, Utilizing E-Learning, besides being Impracticable in Indonesia also Threatens The Quality of Education (kills self-expression, creativity, etc.). We certainly do not need E-Learning to achive the Highest Quality Learning Standards.

As our Deputy Minister for Education stated recently at the Faculty of Teacher Education and Education Science, Indonesia Catholic University Atma Jaya":

"Students are not given the freedom to express their own individual ideas and opinions so creativity is being killed." -- Fasli Jalal Ref: (see below)

AID Organizations and Agencies, because of their growing integration of ICT in their learning programs need to ask themselves, are they really prioritizing Education Development, or through their Support for Programmed Learning only just being utilized by the ICT and other industries to Develop "Consuming Robots" to ensure the futures of Business and Corporate Interests? "Our Market Regime and Public Education"




"Teachers Are Still Too Dominant In The Classroom"
(Deputy Minister for Education)

"JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - The learning process in schools is still boring and not an enjoyable process for learners because the teachers are too dominant in the classrooms.

'Students are not given the freedom to express their own individual ideas and opinions so creativity is being killed.' -- Fasli Jalal

'Students are not given the freedom to express their own individual ideas and opinions so creativity is being killed. stated the Deputy Minister for Education Mr. Fasli Jalal during a discussion panel about Professional Teacher Education at the Faculty of Teacher Education and Education Science at the Indonesia Catholic University Atma Jaya, Saturday (4/12/2010)"

Education Network Salutes Professor Fasli Jalal.

What is the main problem with the implementation of education in Indonesia (besides corruption), yes, our 'Students are not given the freedom to express their own individual ideas and opinions so creativity is being killed.'. - Can we possibly hope that our graduates will be Active (or Pro-Active), Creative, and capable of Contributing To The Development Of Our Country Through Passive-Learning? "60% of Graduates from our Universities are Unemployed", Over 30,000 graduates are unemployed in one district alone - Bekasi (near Jakarta).

The Destruction of Creativity and The Inability of Students to Express Themselves Freely is One Of The Major Failures of Programmed Learning (Especially e-Learning).




For the past 12 years we have been working for and with anyone who shared our interest in Indonesian education. We have answered thousands of questions from the field, placed many thousands of comments and registrations on our websites, and responded to education issues as they have emerged, sometimes requiring the creation of special sites to highlight the issues.

Because our target audience is Indonesian education practitioners and the Ministry of Education our work has been conducted in the Indonesian language (Bahasa Indonesia). We are gradually translating information and articles that we believe will be of interest into English language, and we are currently trying to collect together a team of Online Education Mentors.

What Is A Quality Education?

Teacher-based education where the welfare and abilities of the teachers are satisfactory, and the schools are in good condition, with a curriculum that meets the needs of the students, and is 'well balanced' (includes many forms of skills training including technology), that is implemented using Active Contextual Learning is the solution for preparing our children for the challenges of the future.

Some Recent News Issues

Budget Increases, The MOE Working Together With Supervising Organizations
(Secretary General MOE Dodi Nandika)

JAKARTA--MI: (In brief) Because the budget for education has been raised to 20 percent or Rp224 Trillion in the new APBN for 2009, it needs extra supervision of the management and education implementation.

In order to achieve this, the MOE (Depdiknas) plan to hire supervising staff from the Finance Supervision and Development Board (BPKP), higher education (PT), and the Commission for Eradicating Corruption (KPK), Friday (12/9).

This is the news we have been waiting for!

Hopefully the supervising staff that they are going to hire will be honest, professional, diligent, and ready to work hard!

The supervisors will need to examine all receipts, the actual duration of field activities, and frequently go into the field to check the products and their quality for all expenditure. This is not something that can be done in the office! They will need to check with recipiants in the field as well as with suppliers.

Remember!!! "Corruption occurs at all levels from the MOE (Depdiknas), education offices, and schools"

"We Must Improve Teaching & Learning Activities"
(Phillip Rekdale)

"We believe that improving the quality of Teaching and Learning Activities (TLA) is the most important issue related to achieving quality education in Indonesia. However, before we discuss specific TLA issues we need to discuss some general issues and define some specific issues that determine the quality of education."

"At the Senior High School lever (SMU/A/K) we can still see many learning activities in the schools that are not yet Student Centered. Maybe because there are still many teachers that aren't familiar with the process, or as we sometimes hear, the teachers are still doubtful that they can finish the curriculum on time using PAKEM methodology. However, by utilizing the PAKEM L/T process the students can learn very quickly and enjoy the learning experience while gaining other forms of learning i.e. life skills, self-mangement, independence, research, etc, while they are learning the main or primary topic."

"It's in Higher Education where we can witness teaching and learning practices in most classes that are very passive. The learning process is usually very 'lecturer centered' with the students tending to "sit sweetly", and they are rarely involved actively in the learning process."

President: Don't Let There Be Any Schools In Poor Codition
(President RI)

JAKARTA--MI: (In Brief) President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono asked the MOE and district heads not to allow any school buildings to be in poor condition in context with the new 20 percent APBN 2009 education budget."

To the Govenors, District Heads (Bupati) and Mayors (Walikota) I ask that you no longer have any schools that are in a pitiful state of repair. The president, when opening the Astronomy and Astrophysics Olimpiade at the National Palace, said that he will check the situation in the districts Wednesday (20/8).

You won't need to go very far Mr President.........
70 Percent Of School Buildings in DKI (Jakarta) Are In Bad Repair

JAKARTA--MI: About 70% of Primary and Junior Secondary buildings (SD-SMP) in DKI Jakarta are damaged. In order to repair them, the Provincial Government (Pemprov) DKI must ask for assistance from the central government.

If 70% of schools in Jakarta are in poor repair, what is the situation like in the outer districts???

Education Technology
[ E-Pendidikan.Com ]

Because of the large distances between the provinces in Indonesia opening up communication between the various educational sectors will be difficult. The Internet offers an option for addressing this issue. What is the Internet? What do we need to connect to the Internet? How can our school finance connecting to the Internet? What about computer and Language Laboratories? How can we get Free E-Mail and Free Homepages? These and many other questions are answered at E-Pendidikan.Com.



Employment Website
[ Menganggur.Com ]

Generally it is accepted that there are two forms of education; Vocational Education and General or Professional Education. However, it is the opinion of the writer of this homepage that only one form exists because all education is geared towards employment (regardless of whether you graduate from technical school or medical school). Indo-Jobs Homepage was created in order to provide another link in the education chain and help achieve more Global Outcomes for our students and educators.
