Minister of Education and Culture (Mendikbud) Muhadjir Effendy targets the distribution of Indonesia Smart Cards (KIP) to be completed in late September 2016. He had instructed that all parties such as regional heads, school principals, and village heads help in KIP distribution.
Muhadjir, when reviewing SDN Mangliwang 1, Pakis Subdistrict, Malang Regency, East Java, said on Friday (2/9), if by the end of September 2016 not all have been channeled, Kemendikbud would halt the KIP distribution. Kemendikbud, he continued, would seek other ways of channeling KIP funds to children. Muhadjir added, although it is not yet time to register to schools, he still asked related parties to channel KIP. The reason is so student data are immediately listed in the Education Basic Data (Dapodik).
Meanwhile, Head of UPT Education Agency of Malang Regency, Slamet Suyono explained, a total of 19 thousand out of 71 thousand children who obtained KIP in Malang Regency have been registered in Dapodik. Each child who withdraws obtains Rp 450 thousand. At that opportunity, Mendikbud directly witnessed the disbursement of funds to 27 students who obtained KIP in SDN Mangliwang 1.
