This year reflection.
Several months ago, I have privileged to travel to several new places within Bintuni and Fakfak. To name a few like Arguni (the place that I dream to visit) and Weriagar. I also have a chance to visit Kamundan, Taroi, Otoweri, Tomage, etc.
To make it short, I meet some inspiring principals, I meet very dedicated teachers, and of course very happy students who have high curiosity to learn. I have share some story and conversation with them. Some teachers said that being a teacher make them happy.
During that 12+ day trip, my team and I also have a chance to take literacy data, observe teaching skills, and assist the school toward SNP (National Standard of Education).
With all that's experience, That's make me narrow down to a conclusion that:
- The better quality of principal (in leadership and management) the more likely school have better performances to achieve the national standard (SNP)
- The better literacy of the students will automatically ensure schools quality. But having good schools (based on SNP) doesn't always necessarily ensure the quality of literacy.
- There will be always dedicated teachers in a rural school
- Students are always have a high motivation to learn if the teacher's create such good environment to learn. That's maybe like PAKEM (Pembelajaran Aktif Kreatif dan Menyenangkan).
And there will be always a room for improvement both for schools and teachers.
Again, that's education is everyone responsibility. And it will be always felt amazing to see children/students learn and reach their dream.
