He said the warning was addressed to the Head of SDN Uwung Jaya not because of protests from the parents. But indeed it is considered unethical even though it is done to train independence.

“It’s not a parent’s protest. So it’s really unethical. Because it’s unethical the activity is not in accordance with the MPLS activity rules that we have conveyed. Maybe in terms of the benefits of practicing independence but it is unethical. There are many other ways to practice independence that are more ethical, ” he added.

Helmiati said a warning was issued by the Education Office after receiving information from the public about the activity.

“Yes, because at the same time we received information about the activity, the name is now, the information era is faster, so this protest, so within a few seconds, the information has arrived from the public. We have just made a warning letter, the information has arrived,” he said.

Helmiati admitted that she had given an appeal so that MPLS activities were in accordance with the rules that were already known by all school principals. According to him, the guidelines for implementing MPLS had previously been disseminated to all schools in Tangerang City.

“So we really have to look at the benefits and the ethics must also be considered,” said Helmiati.
