There is a raft of new regulations pertaining to schools and education in Indonesia. I do not intend to go into the politics of why or how, rather that they are now signed into law and that schools must comply. (despite the number of people who think that a bribe or work around will suffice, as they have in the past most schools are finding many aspects of these new regulations challenging)
For instance, one of the most obvious changes is that word ‘International’ is no longer permitted, as of Dec 1st 2014, for any school in Indonesia. Jakarta International School and British International School are two of the biggest, or most high profile schools, and they have already changed their names to Jakarta Intercultural School and British School, Jakarta.
