Pendidikan Islam Indonesia Perpaduan Antara Barat dan Timur Tengah

Kemenag: pendidikan Islam Indonesia perpaduan barat-timur tengah
Dirjen Pendidikan Islam, Kamaruddin Amin (
Anda meyakini Islam sebagai agama benar yang diyakini, tapi kita juga harus tahu teman kita yang beragama lain, mereka meyakini agamanya sama benarnya pula
Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Direktur Jenderal Pendidikan Islam Kementerian Agama, Kamaruddin Amin, mengatakan model pendidikan Islam di Indonesia merupakan perpaduan nilai-nilai baik pendidikan Barat dan ke-Islaman Timur Tengah.

"Saya menyebut pendidikan Islam kita itu dual purpose (memiliki tujuan ganda)," kata Kamaruddin di kantornya di Lapangan Banteng, Jakarta, Rabu.

Tujuan ganda pendidikan Islam, kata Dirjen Pendis, adalah pertama agar pendidikan agama Islam membuat anak didik menjadi perekat sosial budaya atau sebagai instrumen kohesi di tengah masyakarat. Sementara tujuan kedua pendidikan model ini adalah siswa dituntut agar terus menjalankan ibadah sesuai syariah atau taat dan sholeh beribadah.

Hundreds of Thousands of Teachers Have Yet to Take UKG

The Education and Culture Ministry’s Director General of Teacher and Education Personnel Sumarna Surapranata said six percent or equal to 2,587,253 teachers had yet to take teacher competency test (UKG). They are scheduled to take a make-up test which will be held on 11 to 14 December 2015.
Pranata explained teachers who had taken the UKG and found subject mismatches would also participate in the make-up test. There is 0.25 percent of the total number of teachers who experienced the subject mismatches.
The Teacher and Education Personnel Directorate General’s Head of Planning Division Tagor Alamsyah said teachers who were interested to take the make-up UKG could register and subsequently verify the registration to education agencies in their respective regions. The verification must be ensured to be valid to not repeat the mistakes.
Tagor added for certified teachers, tested subject in the UKG must be compatible with their certification. Meanwhile teachers who had yet to be certified could select a subject that was taught by them in the classrooms.

UKG, National Exam for Teacher

Koran Tempi.
Since 2012, Teacher Competency Test (UKG) had only been attended by teachers who would take teacher certification. In 2015, the test was attended by all teachers, both civil servant and non-civil servant teachers. Education and Culture Minister Anies Baswedan reiterated the UKG would not affect teacher professional allowance or teacher certification score.
Anies asserted by having been participated in the UKG, teachers were expected to carry out self-evaluation on their strengths and weaknesses. Insofar, teacher development program failed to meet the personal needs of teachers.

The ministry’s Director General of Teacher and Education Personnel Sumarna Surapranata said the recent UKG was only used as a mapping. In the previous years, the UKG results were used as the basis of teacher training provision. Meanwhile the Federation for Indonesian Teachers Association (FSGI) secretary-general Retno Listyarti urged the ministry to provide trainings for teacher who had taken the UKG.

Improve Teacher's Welfare

Teachers’ Day commemmoration, on Wednesday (25/11), becomes a momentum to fight for the rights of teachers and simultaneously inviting teachers to continue to be learners to improve themselves. The reflection is to enhance the dignity and quality of Indonesia’s teachers.  In front of the State Palace in Jakarta, for example, hundreds of private teachers (teachers of private schools) from various regions joined in the Association of Indonesian Teachers (PGSI) conveyed aspirations for the government to also pay attention to the fate of private teachers as well as there being no longer any discrimination between state and private teachers.
In the Teachers’ Day commemoration,  Secretary General of Indonesian Teachers’ Association Mohammad Ihsan invited teachers to revolutionize themselves. The mentality of lazy to learn should be revolutionized into enjoy learning. According to Ihsan, a teacher’s learning mentality is the main key to improving the quality and professionalism of Indonesia’s teachers.
Related to teacher quality, national teacher trainer and member of Dewan Pendidikan DKI Jakarta Itje Chodijah said, one of the keys to improving teacher quality is the school principals and supervisors properly carrying out their function and responsibilities. Supervisors should oversee learning in class and monitor how teachers teach.
The role of the school superintendent is important because they could map out if there are shortages of teachers. They too are the ones to recommend the type of training teachers need. With real data held by the school superintendents, all monitoring and development of teacher competency could run better.
Itje added the teacher “factory” or Teachers’ college or Lembaga Pendidik dan Tenaga Kependidikan (LPTK) should also be viewed one by one because so far there is no quality of learning standard. According to Itje, there are 460 LPTKs in Indonesia and most are private.  Most of the LPTKs differ in quality and the resulting teachers also vary in quality.

Teachers Day, Momentum to Apply Child Friendly Dcipline
Teachers Day Celebration on 25 November could be used as a momentum to apply a more child-friendly disciplining to students, according to the Indonesian Child Protection Commission (KPAI) Deputy Chairman Susanto.
He deemed many teachers still perceived disciplining and punishment were identical and assumed punishment as the best form of disciplining. However, while disciplining emphasizes more on behavior development which eventually will result in awareness, punishment is oriented to behavior restrain.
Susanto said in education concept students would have consequences when they violated the rules. The consequences will grow awareness while sanctions were oriented to deterrence. In education, it is better to emphasize awareness building compared to deterrence approach.
Susanto added in the violation of rules, for instance, disciplining could be applied to students by instructing them to resume books, memorize vocabs and so on. Currently, sanctions are provided more in the form of physical violence.

Honorary Teachers Look Forward to Change

The Sukabumi City, West Java, Indonesian Teachers Association (PGRI) urged the central government to give attention to the situation of honorary teachers. While they contribute to education sector just like other teachers, the honorary teachers only receive a Rp 200 thousand monthly salary which is very inhumane. Pro-honorary teacher policy needs to be implemented.
The Sukabumi City PGRI Chairman Dudung Koswara said he expected the government to ease the process of promotion to be civil servants, especially for honorary teachers who had been serving for a long period of time or whose ages were already above 40 years old. The promotion must also be given to outstanding honorary teachers.
The Indonesian Category Two Honorary Teachers Forum Chairman Titi Purbaningsih deemed honorary teacher as a perfect profile of teacher. They are willing to teach for years despite of their indecent salary.  Therefore, the government must give attention to the honorary teachers. Furthermore, the government has stipulated a 20 percent education budget allocation in the Annual State Budget (APBN).
Meanwhile the House of Representatives’ member of Commission X Reni Marlinawati said the contribution of an honorary teacher was similar with PNS teachers. However, attention to honorary teachers is far below PNS teachers.
