Bali Post reports that many international schools in Bali are operating illegally without the required permissions from the Ministry of Education and Culture.

The presence of illegally established international schools in Bali was confirmed during a recent field survey conducted by the Education, Youth and Sports Service of Bali (Disdikpora).

“Based on observations in the field, we discovered many international schools in Bali do not have a license from the Ministry of Education and Culture. In response to this finding, the Governor of Bali has written to the Minister of Education and Culture asking that the provincial government of Bali be included in the process of licensing international schools in Bali,” said the head of Disdikpora-Bali, Tjok Istri Agung Kusuma Wardhani on Friday, July 11, 2014.

The survey conducted in Bali visited 25 international schools, most of which reportedly did not have required permits issued by the Ministry of Education and Culture to operate an educational institute. In the southern part of Bali there are 16 international schools in Badung, 8 in Denpasar and 1 in Gianyar.

Governor Pastika blamed the confused licensing situation for international schools in Bali on the failure of the Central Government to include the province in the supervision and licensing process.

Anticipating the negative impact of discovering that many Bali international schools are illegal, the Education Ministry is being asked to clarify the criteria and requirements for both international and national schools.

Clarification is needed on registering schools, employing foreign teachers and the acceptance of students. According to the Governor, this information would do much to assist the provincial government in monitoring school operations.

The Governor is seeking authority from Jakarta to evaluate the feasibility and need for new schools in the province and, once schools are opened, to monitor, regulate and evaluate their continuing operations.

In the meantime, Wardhani asked the Ministry of Education to take firm steps against schools in Bali determined to be operating illegally.
