Jakarta, ONENEWS.MY.ID —
Provincial government DKI Jakarta ensure the implementation of face-to-face learning (PTM) continues, although currently the capital city is re-implementing the policy of the Enforcement of Restrictions on Community Activities (PPKM) Level 2.
Based on the Instruction of the Minister of Home Affairs (Inmendagri) Number 1 of 2022 concerning PPKM Java-Bali, Jakarta is again included in the level 2 category.
“It is still running, while there is no policy to stop it,” said Head of Public Relations of the DKI Jakarta Education Agency, Taga Radjagah, to reporters, Tuesday (4/1).
Taga ensures that his party continues to monitor and evaluate the implementation of PTM in all areas of Jakarta. To this day, the Education Office has not received any reports of students being exposed to the corona virus (Covid-19) after 100 percent PTM in the capital city.
He added that if referring to the SKB 4 ministers regarding PTM, the central government does require all schools to implement PTM 100 percent. However, DKI gives discretion to parents who have not given their child permission to participate in PTM at school.
“This means that we are trying to accommodate people who still want/worry their children’s health will be disturbed. It is also possible because parents are (afraid) their children have a congenital disease,” said Taga.
He added, Disdik continuously monitors and collects data in the field related to the implementation of PTM. According to him, the school is also obliged to report about the condition of their students.
“Every school that implements this PTM reports every day the condition of being sick or not, who is present or not to the system. So it can be detected as early as possible. So there is no policy to review the PPKM level 2,” he explained.
“It means this, the situation has already happened and it’s only today [informasi PPKM Level 2] where there are considerations, there are definitely important considerations, just don’t stop PTM immediately,” he added.
Previously, Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta, Ahmad Riza Patria, said 10,429 schools in the capital city held face-to-face learning (PTM) with 100 percent capacity starting Monday (3/1).
