Appreciate Hard work and creativity of The Teacher at your school

During this education implementation
more dominated by the paradigm of bureaucracy that result in the institution and its environment lack empowerment in realizing its performance. Everything is arranged in a rigid, centralized and bureaucratic, so that the performance of the educational unit stuck with all the bureaucratic administrative rules. The statement implies the need to rearrange the bureaucratic paradigm in education, especially in the path of schooling and more balanced empowerment opportunities to educational institutions with all the tools and environment.
All educational institutions and personnel should be given the opportunity to develop professionalism, creativity and realize innovative ideas without having to stare at all the rigid bureaucratic rules. Of course rules are made permanent government needed to maintain national standards, but not too detailed so that was into it.
In order to improve and enhance the quality of education, a variety of innovative programs implemented. However, there are three main innovative program that became the main emphasis, such as BBE approach (Broad Base Education), life skills-oriented education (life skills), change of curricula (SBC). Broad Base Education as a paradigm implies the implementation of wide-oriented education as a vehicle to provide experience in the learning process in a broad sense. While the concept suggested life skill-oriented education for education provision to be able to give meaningful life for all learners. Both these innovative programs supported by four pillars of UNESCO by the Commission on Education for the Twenty-First Century, namely: 1) learning to know that also means learning to learn, to learn to acquire knowledge and to undertake further learning, 2) learning to do , to learn to have a basic competence in dealing with situations and team work is different, 3) learning to be, to learn to actualize themselves as individuals by having scales and personal responsibility, 4) learning to live together, to learn to be able to appreciate and practice the conditions of interdependence, diversity and mutual understanding. Thus the output process is a whole-person education with balanced excellence in aspects of spiritual, social, intellectual, emotional and physical.
The third innovative program that became the foundation of the education system is the curriculum. The curriculum is applied at this time Education Unit Level Curriculum (SBC). SBC basic framework is as a format set syllabus done autonomously, competencies and learning outcomes to be achieved in all levels of learners, teaching and learning activities that ensure the experience of learners to achieve direct experience and acquire processes, products, competencies and values expected as well as evaluating a more authentic, accurate and sustainable. With SBC, teachers are required to demonstrate professionalism by preparing lesson plans that can be explored and developed. Duty teachers are not fed, and shedding, but as a motivator, mediator, and facilitator of education. On a more effective teacher can position the learner, such as; accept me, understand me and talk with me. Accept me, understand me, and talk to me, is a pretty good approach, to fishing activity learners actively construct their own knowledge.
Learning approach that can be done is the approach of constructivism, science and technology, and approaches inquiri. With these three approaches are students able to find the concept, appreciate and practice for the pious to God the Almighty, curiosity, tolerance, open mind, confidence, compassion, caring, togetherness, kinship and friendship. This will lead to a unique friendship between teachers and learners. Teachers become the place to ask, friend and devoted discussion of ideas, without fear and awkward.
Indirectly, the curriculum suggests that it takes not only a teacher, but also a Begawan. Educators are good-hearted and willing to sacrifice his life to education. Can the teachers in our country reached such a stage? Can teachers work iklas and attentive as he should think of loans receivable to the Bank? Can teachers make learning fun and friendly while they were overwhelmed by confusion and rushing to meet their needs? Reality on the ground shows the bitter realities. Not anymore time teacher was given the title Hero Without a Signs Services but more is needed is a decent and humane award!
Professionalism and creativity of teachers is not only seen from the ability of teachers in developing learning well. But also the feasibility and appropriateness of the salary given. When the needs and welfare are met, there will be no teacher who truant to drudge work out for a bite of rice. Give the rights and respect that is deserved! Then the teacher will give the best thing for students. The frendly willingness and indeed necessary in the profession of a teacher, but more is needed again the ability to understand and give meaning to the profession!
