The Rights of Teachers Must Be Fought

Minister of Education and Culture (Mendikbud) of the Republic of Indonesia said that the Ministry of Education and Culture (Kemendikbud) continues to raise the position of the teacher as an honorable profession.

In addition to continuing to meet the rights and improve the welfare of the teachers, the Government also encourages teachers to be empowered according to their profession."We are currently striving to make teachers a professional job.

So that no person handles the work of the teacher, "told Mendikbud Muhadjir Effendy in his speech at the World Teacher Day workshop in 2018, at the Ministry of Manpower office, Jakarta, Tuesday (2/10).The teacher, according to Mendikbud, is a ' grassroots ' national education. The role is very important, though often considered underestimated due to its position. "There will be no ' green ' education if there is no teacher. And also education will not be fertile if the teacher, not ' fertile '. Therefore, before talking about quality education, sejahtera teachers. And give her a status that prompted her to be proud, so she has self-dignity, "she said.

In this time, Kemendikbud continues to give teachers the rights to have dignity and confidence. Mendikbud is believed to promote better quality of the learning process.One of the efforts undertaken by the Government is to encourage clear teacher status. However, with the limitations of the Government's ability, the appointment of teachers could not be done as well, but gradually. "After this CPNS test, there is still an opportunity for teachers aged 35 years to take a test of prospective government employees with a work agreement," said Muhadjir.

He said, according to Mendikbud, the task of Kemendikbud is to encourage teachers to make their students intelligent and characteristic. For that, the teacher training pattern will be changed to empower and strengthen the teacher's position as a professional.There are at least three things that make the teacher a respected profession. The first is the core competency (expertise).

This includes pedagodist prowess as well as personality (character) educators. Second, is awareness and social responsibility."He was self-proclaimed for the sake of his expertise, and the benefit of his expertise he offered for the benefit of society. If not, then the professional work can actually harm many people, "said Mendikbud.And the third is the spirit of the soul and pride of his quorum. One feature of the profession, according to Mendikbud, is the existence of professional associations."The professional association is to hone the skills, skills, together. Exchange the experience of knowledge and expertise. It should be a teacher association, "said Muhadjir.
