Jayapura, Jubi – Education Office (Disdik) of Papua Province admits that there are many reports of teachers who are lazy to teach and rarely attend the school. Ironically they still receive certification allowances.

“From the reports we received, there are still many teachers who are lazy to teach and rarely come to school but still receive certification allowances,” said the Head of Education Office of Papua Elias Wonda, in Jayapura, Sunday (October 1).

Under these conditions he appealed to teachers in Papua to be more active in carrying out their duties, and not to leave the place of duty. “This is what the teachers should pay attention to, because the golden generation of Papua is in the hands of the teachers,” Elias said.

The Provincial Education Office (Disdik) of Papua promised that teacher certification allowance funds could be liquidated and handed over to each account on time. Accuracy of the allowance is expected to stimulate the teacher more support in carrying out its duties.


Elias emphasizes that teachers who have certified and received benefits meet the number of teaching hours. “Do not miss school frequently,” warned Elias.

The Expert Staff of Papua Governor for the Field of Community and Human Resources, Anni Rumbiak said that teachers have a big role in advancing education in Papua.

“Actually the core of quality of education is the teacher, that is why they must be qualified,” said Anni.

According to him, education is under the attention of Governor and Vice Governor of Papua so it has its own priority that must be implemented in the program of Gerbangmas Hasrat Papua. (*)
