Assalamu’alaikum Wr. Wb.
First of all, let us praise to the Almighty Allah SWT, because of His Blessing we are able to attend this English speech contest. Secondly, may peace be upon the prophet Muhammad Saw. who has guided us from the darkness into the brightness.
I also would like to say many thanks to the juries and MC who have given me
opportunity to deliver an English speech entitled: the National Education day
Honorable our Teachers
Ladies and Gentlemen; Brothers and Sisters
Today, we all gathered here to commemorate the National Education day, which falls precisely on May 2, 2011. The question is, what should we do to make this celebration have a great meaning to the improvement of our education system?
We cannot deny that the quality of our education is still poor. It is a fact that our
education achievement is at the bottom within South-East Asia countries, even we are left
behind our neighbors. There are many problems in our education system.
For examples: many teachers are poorly trained both in their subject matters and in
teaching skills, our teachers’ salaries are low, our education fee is still expensive, and also
other crucial problems related with the curriculum, national exam (UN), and teacher
Brothers and Sisters;
We all know that our concern now is on how to improve the quality of our education sector.
I think, there are basically two main aspects that we should focus on. The first one
is human aspect and the second is our system. Human aspect means that we must overhaul
the stakeholders of education sector, for examples: teachers, students, administration staff,
and society. The second aspect means that we must also re-evaluate the system of our
education. Our system should emphasize on the curriculum which encourages students to
be able to apply their knowledge in the field of job and be ready to face the globalization.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
With the National Education Day, may we have more spirit to promote and educate the children of our nation to be useful for the Nation, State and Religion. The Increasing of school age children fastly and accretion of the graduated each education level are great, but not followed by the addition of infrastructure and facilities for rapid and adequate education, will pose a problem for the government to provide “education and teaching” on all citizens as mandated by the Basic Law (UUD). Education reformation is focusing attention on remediation efforts and improving the quality and arrangement of the opportunity to get education.
Ladies and Gentlemen;
Brothers and Sisters,
Ki Hajar Dewantara (1889-1959) a prominent of Indonesian education established educational institutions named “Taman Siswa”. He is more famous for its philosophy of “tut wuri handayani, hing madya mangun karsa, hing ngarso sung tulada. Dewantara classified education goals with the term “tri-nga” (three “nga-nga are the last letters in the alphabet of Java ajisak). The first “Nga” is “ngerti’” is to understand “(comprehend / intellectual aspects). ” second Nga ” is “ngrasa” is (feel aspects of affection), and The third “nga” is “nglakonin” (teaching or psychomotor aspects). This formulate educational goals that include aspects of cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. According Dewantara, to organize themselves is the right of every people, and therefore teaching should educate children to become independent of human mind, thought and energy. Teaching should not be too focus on thoughts of intelligence because it can separate the educated people with the ordinary people.
May the Indonesian nation further enhance and educate children and create a productive learner, creative, innovative and useful to the nation and the State, create qualified human resources and independent that can meet global needs.
For That, let us as parents to participate in improving the quality of our children’s education, do not hope too much and expect everything related to education responsibility only of the teachers, but we also as parents, must provide a deeper appreciation of educating our children.
That’s all my speech. I hope it will be useful for us.
Thank you very much for your attention.
