Jakarta, IO – The Education, Culture, Research and Technology Ministry (Kemendikbudristek) revoked the permits of 17 tertiary institutions in the January to March period, reported CNNIndonesia, Friday (26/5). Last year, 31 institutions were also shut down.
Despite its impact on students, lecturers and other staff, Higher Education, Research and Technology (Diktiristek) director general Lukman said the action has to be taken to protect the public interests.
Lukman revealed several reasons, including internal strife between the management and the founders which led to disruption in the learning and teaching process.
Other reason being those institutions do not meet the national standards. He said this can be seen from the implementation of the curriculum, teaching and learning process and assessments. (un)
