Jayapura, 15/7 (Jubi) – Papua education chief Elias Wonda said the province’s difficult terrain and remoteness has become the main challenge in disseminating information about the 2013 curriculum.
Wonda said the 2013 curriculum socialization has become a necessity although access to remoter parts of the province is difficult.
“The limitation is the impact of the Papua condition and its geography, topography and unique demographics,” he said on Tuesday (15/7).
These need comprehensive preparation such as in planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation programs including funding and resources.
“The educational Quality Assurance Agency (LPMP), Provincial Education and Culture Department and the Department of Education and Culture in each regency / city should work together in socializing the 2013 Curriculum. It is important in order get valid data on the number of teachers who have and will be trained, “he said.
The 2013 Curriculum training had been conducted since the first year of the implementation of the curriculum. This training was in the form of socialization and reinforcement for the elementary and secondary education.
“Socialization has been implemented in five regions in Papua “he explained.
In 2013 there were 69 targeted schools.
“All 69 schools are scattered which are 36 elementary schools, 19 middle schools, 11 high school and 4 vocational schools. The total was slightly small compared to the overall total number of public and private schools in Papua which is 4606 elementary schools,1090 junior high schools and 570 senior high schools, “he added.
There are 26,923 teachers and only 16,094 tecahers who got trained or about 37 percents.
