Hi William,

Thanks for your questions. Ujian Nasional Exams is absolutely available for homeschooling learners. Students can take exams through Paket A, B and C.or equivalent elementary, junior and senior-high to get diploma according to education level.

The provision of education through homeschooling has been recognized by the government through the Minister of Education and Culture (Permendikbud) under RI number 129 of 2014. In the regulation it is affirmed that the results of education Homeschooling are recognized equal to formal and non-formal education after the students pass the test in accordance with national standards of education.

There are many articles and news available online that provide more detail information on this.

This is a great question. Wearing a school uniform has shown a psychological impact on homeschooling learners. Particularly on young learners. Parents choose homeschooling as a result of dissatisfaction from formal school, but they do want children to learn some school disciplines. Children on the other side feel more confident in front of their peers who attain formal schools. In short, by giving a school like environment in home can be very beneficial.

This is a link to your website. I don't see any studies showing wearing a uniform assists psychologically for better learning.

Oh.. there's no exact link, but you can read this book "More Charlotte Mason Education". In this book author Catherine Levison recommends to wear uniform with very well explanation.
You can also look at several articles. They may not specific for homeschoolers, but enough to clarify the general idea behind benefits of wearing uniform. Some of them are -

The only bonafide research quoted in the first article is as follows: "Dr. David L. Brunsma, a professor of Sociology at Virginia Tech, co-authored a study analyzing the effectiveness of uniforms in tackling school absences, behavioral issues and substance abuse in a national sample. The study found that uniforms had “no effect” on the issues. The study suggests that it also had “no effects” on “pro-school attitudes, academic preparedness, and peer attitudes toward school.”"

"The Conversation" is a site used by academics with an agenda to get their opinions published without the vetting characteristic of the respected publishers of credible research.

Of course, its because that article includes Pros and Cons of wearing school uniform. This is what we mentioned above - there is no exact link and they are related articles. Anyway, as a service provider we keep this completely optional and our main objective is to create school like environment for the homeschoolers. So far there is nothing damaging and even parents welcome the idea.
Thanks for participating!

Hi

I'm reviving this thread in the hope that the OP might respond. The website seems up, but no response to my emails and phone calls.
Also, would appreciate any info on homeschooling in Indonesia.

A quick search found quite a few useful hits:
Permendikbud no 129/2014 about Homeschooling (SekolahRumah)

Homeschooling is legal. Article 7 of the Indonesian education law (Undang-Undang No. 20/2003) gives parents the right to select how to educate their child.
In May 2007 the Department of Education published a manual detailing the requirements for homeschooling. The manual asks homeschools to register and requires testing at certain levels, but currently there is no enforcement of these requirements. Homeschoolers are not automatically awarded high school diplomas, so entrance into university may be difficult.
found here: https://hslda.org/content/hs/international/Indonesia/default.asp

If your home country school district offers some sort of virtual campus, then you're in great shape. Just register before you move to Indo!

Established curriculum options exist that would offer a framework and support, and will probably be less expensive than many international schools. One example is:
https://wolseyhalloxford.org.uk/about-us/international-homeschooling/indonesia/

Homeschooling is something that I'm seriously looking at for my kids if/when we move to Indo, but I'm a teacher and would feel quite comfortable doing it. For someone without the same background, it would be different obviously. Also, in my home country (USA) there are millions of children that are home schooled each academic year, so in my mind it is a genuine and mainstream path with lots of support and a huge amount of resources.

I do not home school my children now, and I am not in Indo currently, but I would advise others to stay away from a 'service' that promises to visit your home. That sounds strange to me. I would strongly suggest hooking up with a network of other homeschooling families in order to share resources and with whom you can arrange educational trips and other activities.

I hope that this helps! I'll post more info. as I find it (or as I go through the process).

:cool:(y)
