- Safe school, violances, school climate
- Vary of violances occurred in schools (e.g. Tabanan case in 2014 and Makasar case in 2016) showed us of how school has no longer been a safe and friendly place for teachers and students as well. Indonesian Law 20/2003 art. 3 stated that the national education functions to develop the capability, character, and civilization of the nation for enhancing its intellectual capacity, and is aimed at developing learners ' potentials so that they become persons imbued with human values who are faithful and pious to one and only God; who possess morals and noble character; who are healthy, konwledgeable, competent, creative, independent; and as citizens, are democratic and responsible. To address the objective of national education there must be a safe and friendly school climate, both physically and psychologically. The term 'safe and friendly school climate' here reffers to a peaceful atmosphere where the teachers, staff, and students are free from all fear and dangers (BNPB, 2011). In other words, a safe and friendly school refers to educational institution in which all the members (teachers, staff, and students) are free from dangers both internally and externally (Kemendikbud, 2016). In order to have 'a safe and friendly school' for all, the following efforts should be taken seriously into mind: (a) teachers should have adequate competences, both personal, pedagogyc, professional, and social; (b) there is need for building up a communication forum (e.g. PGRI, MKKS, MGMP, KKG, IGTK) for all stakeholders to communicate and to help each other in resolving the problems; and (c) there is also a need to develop local-wisdom based management in order to have a character and harmonious school.
