The five-day school policy in Kediri city will be evaluated, here’s why

TIME.CO, JakartaThe Diniyah Takmiliyah Communication Forum (FKDT) in Kediri City, East Java, submitted inputs and requests for evaluation regarding the policies school five days in that region. The reason is that this policy is believed to mean that children have neither preparation nor rest for non-formal or early schooling.

President of the FKDT Kediri city Melvien Zainul Asyiqien, who is also the caretaker of Al Mahrusiyah Islamic Boarding School, Lirboyo, Kediri, said the five-day school entry policy has had quite a significant impact. Children who should be able to prepare to attend non-formal school are not optimal, because they are tired of school.

According to Melvien, non-formal education in Kediri city starts at 2pm WIB on average. After the start of the five-day school term, children’s school hours end at 2:00 pm or one hour later.

This causes many children to resist sharing their time. “There are also those who go to madrassas at night but there is a decline in impact, our survey was almost 40%. Since they have already reached school, they cannot attend non-formal schools. These are non-Islamic boarding schools ,” Melvien said, Monday, Oct. 23, 2023.

According to Melvien, many people hope that the school entry policy will return to its original policy of six entry days. In this way, children can be better prepared and less tired when taking part in non-formal education in their environment.

Currently, there are around 108 Islamic madrasas in Kediri city. Most of the students are of school age. About half of that number are non-Islamic colleges.

In response to this, Kediri City Education Bureau chief Anang Kurniawan said his party will evaluate the five-day school policy. “It is recommended that we evaluate this policy and communicate more intensively,” he said.


According to Anang, communication will be made with the FKDT of Kediri City so that the five-day school entry policy will hopefully not interfere with non-formal education. “The way this regulation is implemented does not interfere with non-formal education. We will then communicate the issue in more detail,” he said.

Anang said the evaluation will be carried out as soon as possible and the results will be immediately communicated to all institutions, both formal and non-formal.

Kediri City DPRD Commission C member Soedjoko Adi Poerwanto said his party facilitated a meeting between the Kediri City government and the Kediri City FKDT regarding the implementation of the five-day school . “This program has only been running for a month and we have recommended re-evaluating these five school days,” he said.

Soedjoko said Kediri town has many Islamic colleges and boarding schools, so hopefully non-formal education activities will not be disrupted. “I hope this recommendation comes from the education department so they can provide the best. Five days is good, six days of school is also good, but they asked for six days of school to be returned,” he said.

The five-day school policy in Kediri town only started last September. Soedjoko said This policy was adopted so that students have more time with their families and there is a boost in the economy.
