- The new students enrolment system (PPDB) in 2017 used two ways, i.e. online and offline . The effect of PPDB system influenced the amount of students enrolling in private schools decreased, even some schools collapsed. It also caused disparities of clever students (from rich families) and incapable students (from poor families). This study aims at explaining the symbolic violence caused by the policy of PPDB according to Bourdieu’s perspective. The qualitative approach was used in an instrumental case study model. The data were processed through (a) data collection, (b) data presentation, (c) data reduction, and (d) verification and conclusions . The findings show that (a) the PPDB system might gather the clever students in the state (public) schools based on symbolic capitals, (b) private schools became lack of competitiveness and then collapsed because the private schools became “disposal”, the place for students who had less capitals. The rulers and elites sustained to hegemonize the poor. The conclusions is theoretically what happens to the private schools was a symbolic violence. Viewed from Bourdieu’s perspective, PPDB is a form of symbolic violence because the government tried to impose the implementation. In the name of the symbol (score), the government and elites were able to dominate through habitus and sustained the marginalized poor students.
