The Education Operational Aid (BOP) for basic education in Central Jakarta rises by about 10 percent from last year’s. In the Regional Budget of 2012, the allocation fund for BOP of basic education was Rp58,696,185,600, whereas the Regional Budget for 2013 rises to be Rp 65,625,560,000.
The Head of Basic Education Sub-Agency of Central Jakarta, Zaenal Soleman, says that the budget rises because of the rising number of students. Although the budget rises, BOP for basic education students remains the same every year. The rising budget of BOP also results from expanded aid.
