Republika, page 5

The Ministry of Education and Culture will impose sanctions on teachers who are proven to commit fraud during the 2017 national exams (UN). The Kemendikbud urged all regions and schools in order to guard against fraudulent practices. Head of Kemendikbud Educational Assessment Center, Nizam said that the central government has already set /prepared penalties for those proven to commit fraud. The goal is to keep education in Indonesia to steer clear of fraudulent practices during the UN.

Kemendikbud also issued threats to teacher perpetrators involved in fraud.  Teacher perpetrators proven fraudulent during the implementation of the UN would receive strict punishment from the government. The sanctions are divided into several criteria. The lightest sanction is termination of professional allowance of the teacher perpetrator. Then, other sanctions are revocation to dismissal as teacher.

The central government also appealed to the relevant stakeholders to assist the implementation of the computer based national exam (UNBK) of the high school (SMA) level; so that the constraints that emerged during the implementation of vocational high school (SMK) UNBK would not occur again in the SMA UNBK.    The relevant parties as meant by Nizam are among others, the IT community, hackers, experts, internet service providers, PLN (State Electric Company), and society.
