JAKARTA - The Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Kemendikbudristek) has confirmed that it will follow up on cases of bullying at Binus School Serpong, South Tangerang (Tangsel) involving the daughter of artist Vincent Rompies.

"The Ministry of Education and Culture through the Inspectorate General Team has communicated with schools and followed up on cases that occurred," said Head of the Public Relations Cooperation Bureau (BKHM) of the Ministry of Education and Culture Anang Ristanto in Jakarta, Tuesday, February 20, as reported by Antara.

Anang said that his party had communicated with the school and it was known that the Binus School Serpong High School had formed a Violence Prevention and Handling Team (TPPK).

Not only the school, he said, the South Tangerang City Government (Pemkot) has also formed a Task Force for the Prevention and Handling of Violence in the Education Unit (PPKSP).

Anang ensured that the victim received an optimal recovery process with efforts to handle this bullying case running according to the investigation mechanism, so that later sanctions would be applied to the perpetrators in accordance with applicable regulations.

The Technical Implementation Unit (UPT) of the Ministry of Education and Research and Technology through the Banten Province Quality and Education Guarantee Center (BPMP) continues to coordinate with schools and local governments (Pemda) to monitor the development of the case.

Anang explained that the Ministry of Education and Culture itself has strengthened efforts to prevent and deal with violence in educational units through Permendikbudristek Number 46 of 2023 which was launched on August 8, 2023 as part of the 25th Independence Learning Episode.

The regulation assigns education units to form TPPK, while provincial and district/city governments form a PPKSP Task Force to ensure a quick response to the handling of violence in education units.

To date, more than 338,000 educational units have formed TPPK with 251 provincial and district/city governments that have also formed the PPKSP Task Force.

These steps are an effort by the Ministry of Education and Culture to create a learning environment that is safe, comfortable, inclusive, fun, and free from all violence," said Anang.
