I attended an ANPS meeting yesterday in which we were given the latest, signed copy of the government regulations for all schools in Indonesia. There are a number of implications for all of us. (eg: we have to apply the national curriculum, we cannot use the word “International” in our school names, all foreign students must study Indonesia culture and language lessons, all local students must take the Year 6,9 & 12 Exams, Indonesian students must study religion, civics, bahasa Indonesia and so on….). There are a couple of tricky/complicated things, but not necessarily anything impossible.
This is now law and we have until 1 Dec 2014 to comply or risk being shut down. For the moment we will study the regulations (of which we already had warning about) and we will be having about meeting with DIKNAS representative early next month to clarify.
