Educational Legal Entity

On 31 March, the Constitutional Court annulled the Educational Legal Entity Law No. 9/2009 saying that  it is against the Constitution 1945 because it failed to recognize disparities among Indonesia's educational institutions to generate funding to support its activities.

Considering that the National Educational System Law 2003 stipulates that organizers of educational institutions should be legal entities, in which the form shall be ruled by an educational legal entity law, obviously the annulment caused confusion among the educational institutions.

Due to this fact, the government is currently preparing a draft of a new educational legal entity bill.

For details, please click here, here and here.

I hope that the government would draft a new educational legal entity law that would the costs for study  at state owned educational institutions much lower than it is today, that way more people can enjoy good quality educations.

A bit confusing, so a new law may well be needed.

Peter/Kiwi,
According to the called law all educational institutions should have a status of a legal entity which is fully autonomous. For state owned institutions this means that the government stop giving subsidy so they have to raise money from students making the fees very high no different from private universities.
Due to cancellation of the law, the government is preparing a new law.
