Parents upset, disappointed with online school registration

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Headlines | Sat, July 05, 2014, 9:25 AM

Hundreds of parents thronged the Jakarta Education Agency’s office in Kuningan, South Jakarta, to report problems with the online school registration system on Friday.

Ratusan orang tua memadati kantor Dinas Pendidikan DKI Jakarta di Kuningan, Jakarta Selatan, untuk melaporkan masalah sistem pendaftaran sekolah online pada hari Jumat.

During their visit to the agency’s office, the parents expressed their dissatisfaction with the online system, which according to them was disorganized and made it difficult for them to register their children for enrollment in public schools.

Dalam kunjungannya ke kantor dinas tersebut, para orang tua mengungkapkan ketidakpuasan mereka terhadap sistem online yang menurut mereka tidak teratur dan menyulitkan mereka untuk mendaftarkan anaknya ke sekolah negeri.

Riki Setyanto, one of the parents, said that he had registered his daughter for enrollment at state vocational high school SMKN 47 Jakarta, but she then got rejected due to the minimum height policy applied by the state-run school.

Riki Setyanto, salah satu orang tua, mengatakan bahwa dia telah mendaftarkan putrinya untuk mendaftar di sekolah menengah kejuruan negeri, SMKN 47 Jakarta, tetapi dia kemudian ditolak karena kebijakan tinggi minimum yang diterapkan oleh sekolah negeri.

However, he added, his daughter was also turned down after she registered at a different school because her name was still listed for SMKN 47 Jakarta.

Namun, lanjutnya, putrinya juga ditolak setelah mendaftar di sekolah lain karena namanya masih terdaftar di SMKN 47 Jakarta.

“First, my daughter was rejected because of her height, and now due to technical issues, she can’t register at any school. I just want to get her into a good school,” he said, adding that he hoped the agency could solve the problems as soon as possible.

“Pertama, putri saya ditolak karena tinggi badannya, dan sekarang karena masalah teknis, dia tidak dapat mendaftar di sekolah mana pun. Saya hanya ingin memasukkannya ke sekolah yang bagus,” katanya, seraya menambahkan bahwa dia berharap pemerintah dapat menyelesaikan masalah secepat mungkin.

Nuraisyah Paransa, another parent, also said that she was unable to register her son at any state-run high school due to similar technical problems. 

Nuraisyah Paransa, orang tua lainnya, juga mengatakan bahwa dia tidak dapat mendaftarkan putranya di sekolah menengah negeri mana pun karena masalah teknis yang serupa.

She said that her son was initially accepted at East Jakarta public school through public admission phase. However, he did not reregister with that school as he wanted to shoot for a better state-run school through the local admission phase.

Ia mengatakan, awalnya anaknya diterima di sekolah negeri Jakarta Timur melalui tahap penerimaan umum. Namun, dia tidak mendaftar ulang ke sekolah itu karena dia ingin mencari sekolah negeri yang lebih baik melalui fase zonasi.

“But the second school rejected him because he had been accepted through the public admission phase. Since my son did not re-register at the first school, now he isn’t registered anywhere,” she said.

“Tetapi sekolah kedua menolaknya karena dia telah diterima melalui tahap penerimaan umum. Sejak anak saya tidak mendaftar ulang di sekolah pertama, sekarang dia tidak terdaftar di mana pun, ”katanya.

The online registration system has been applied in the capital since 2004. No such problems occurred with the previous registration system.

Sistem pendaftaran online telah diterapkan di ibukota sejak tahun 2004. Tidak ada masalah seperti itu dengan sistem pendaftaran sebelumnya.

This year’s student admission system has three phases: public admission, where students vie for seats with other students throughout the country; local admission, where students compete with others in the same province; and third admission, where students who did not get accepted during first and second admission resubmit their applications.

Sistem penerimaan siswa tahun ini memiliki tiga fase: penerimaan umum, di mana siswa bersaing untuk mendapatkan kursi dengan siswa lain di seluruh negeri; penerimaan lokal, di mana siswa bersaing dengan orang lain di provinsi yang sama; dan penerimaan ketiga, di mana siswa yang tidak diterima pada penerimaan pertama dan kedua mengajukan kembali aplikasi mereka.

Lasro Marbun, head of the Jakarta Education Agency, said that anyone who did not re-register in the public admission phase and was unable to register during local admission or third admission, could register their children at private schools.

Lasro Marbun, Kepala Dinas Pendidikan DKI Jakarta, mengatakan siapa pun yang tidak mendaftar ulang pada tahap penerimaan umum dan tidak dapat mendaftar pada penerimaan lokal atau penerimaan ketiga, dapat mendaftarkan anaknya di sekolah swasta.

“They can then transfer them to a public school in the second semester,” he said on Thursday as quoted by kompas.com.

“Mereka kemudian dapat mentransfernya ke sekolah umum pada semester kedua,” katanya, Kamis seperti dikutip kompas.com.

However, Rida Afrida, who wanted to register her son at state junior high school SMP 194, did not agree with that idea. According to her, a lot of people have chosen public schools over private schools for financial reasons.

Namun, Rida Afrida yang ingin mendaftarkan anaknya di SMP Negeri 194, tidak setuju dengan ide tersebut. Menurutnya, banyak orang memilih sekolah negeri daripada sekolah swasta karena alasan finansial.

“I cannot pay for a private school, if he thinks that is a good alternative for us, he should just give us the money to pay for those schools,” she said.

“Saya tidak bisa membayar sekolah swasta, jika dia pikir itu alternatif yang baik bagi kami, dia harus memberi kami uang untuk membayar sekolah itu,” katanya.

Meanwhile, acting Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama said that the parents should be patient and not panic.

Sementara itu, Pj Gubernur DKI Jakarta Basuki Tjahaja Purnama mengatakan orang tua harus bersabar dan tidak panik.

“We had no problems last year. The process might be a little complicated, but there’s no reason to panic,” the acting governor told reporters at City Hall.(idb/dwa)
