However, there were several inhibiting factors, namely, the emergence of interpretation among the community, the lack of support and misunderstanding of the community; The tiered socialization system implemented by the Education Office was not maximal; and the time for the issuance of the technical instructions which was close to the time of PPDB implementation so that the socialization is not optimal.
