Published

Jayapura, Jubi – To prepare the upcoming National Examinations (UN), Commission V of Papua Legislative Council ( DPRP) overseeing on education urged regents and mayor to enforce teachers’ attendance.

Secretary of the Commission V, Nason Utti said, it is important to look at the extent to which the teachers in the area comply with their duties and responsibilities.

“In addition, the head of regional and local education department are also responsible of all the lack of facilities. All related to National Exams logistics should be prepared from now. For schools that have no teachers, it’s better to merge into a nearby school so that students could participate in the National Exams,” Nason Utti said on Monday (5/1).

He further said the students who pass the exams must be based on their competence and the quality of students depends on how teachers teach them. He also asked the principals and teachers to prepare the students for the upcoming UN.

“Students should get additional lessons so that they would be more ready for the upcoming UN. The teachers should avoid discrimination in the classroom. What matters is the quality of the students,” he said.

“In the future, students’ graduation will not depend on grades, but there are some factors that will be considered. We agree with that policy, so we asked each regency and the town to soon adjust with the policy. Don’t be left behind with other provinces,” he added.

He further said the Ministry of Education would use the upcoming National Exam for mapping, policy interventions and graduation requirement as well as the requirement to pursue to the higher education.

Meanwhile, a member of Commission V of Papua Legislative Council, Nathan Pahabol, said the Department of Education should coordinate with the Ministry of Education, teachers and principals before National Exam is implemented.

“We hoped the regents and mayors to monitor the conditions of teaching and learning process. If the teachers are lazy, they must get sanctions,” Pahabol said. (Arjuna Pademme/Tina)

Jayapura, Jubi – The Vice Chairwoman of the Commission V of the Papua House of Representative for Health and Education Maria Duwitau warned the provincial government not set a goal for Papuan children to be free from rubella and measles only on media.

She further said it is difficult to actualise this goal if the access to health services including the regular immunisation program has not been optimal since it has not reached remote areas yet.

“There is a query that should be answered immediately before the government’s commitment to free a million of children from the threat of rubella and measles,” said Duwitau on Thursday (7/6/2018).

Furthermore, she said if the Papua Provincial Government really committed to this goal, they should optimise the health services including the regular immunisation program by developing the local health facilities.

Meanwhile, the Head of Papua’s Health Office Aloysius Giyai admitted that this province still has a problem with the regular immunisation program. The participation rate is below 80 per cent in most districts, which is under the national target.

“Even in some districts with high participation rate, the Universal Child Immunisation (UCI) rate is also below 80 per cent,” said Giyai. (*)
