THE POLICY OF TEACHER’S CONDEMNATION BASED ON CHILD PROTECTION LAW

Arief Budiono

Abstract


The problem of education happening in Indonesia today causes excess negative impact where there
are the guardions or parents drag teachers into law under the pretext of violating the Child
Protection Laws. One of them is imprison teachers due to allegation of child abuse.
The police also causes polemic in some areas by directly captering and holding teachers based on
sided report of parents or guardians of students who don’t accept their child punished to improve
their behavior. Sometimes, the coaching action which done is an activity that is not violent such as
asking students to stand up because of undiscipline, tweaking the naughty student or just pinching
smking students. Police action who arrested the teacher causes criticism from public.
The situation in which the teacher arrested due to coaching action has been demoralizing for other
teachers. They feel fear or anxiety to have trouble with the law or even go to jail if reckless
conduct punishment to improve learners’ behavior.
Teachers act passively let their students do as what they want and act out of control as long as the
teaching materials have been given properly, it means extreme situation because it will create
intellectual students only without having good behavior.
The suitable solution for the case is a solution that can differentiate wether the violence action and
abuse action for students or the action for improving students’ behavior, and how the process of
handing carried out, wether a doer directly jailed or processed first by persuasion and mediation
way.
