TIME.CO, Jakarta – Case numbers violence in a growing educational environment needs serious attention from various parties. The Center for Character Building (Puspeka) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology (Kemendikbudristek) has also initiated three strategic measures to reduce the number of violence in educational environment.

“This program involved 10,708 institutions and produced more than 51,370 change agents, who in this case place students in sample “to spread positive values ​​and kindness among peers,” Prita said.

This year Puspeka is targeting 2,750 educational units from middle, high school and vocational schools to follow technical guidance offline and online.

According to data from the Indonesian Child Protection Commission (KPAI), in 2022 there will be 2,133 cases in the category of sexual crimes against children, children victims of physical and psychological violence as well as cases of victims of pornography and cybercrime. SMeanwhile, other data from the National Assessment of the Ministry of Education and Culture in 2023 shows that 34.51% have the potential to experience sexual violence.
