Merauke, Jubi- A number of seventh and eighth grade students at SMP Buti were found to be not able to read or write properly because of no having strong foundation at the primary level.
This was conveyed by principal of SMPN Buti, Paschalis Tethool to Jubi at his office on last week.
“I have asked all students’ advisers to record who have not been able to write and read well,” he said.
He continued, after we have the data, there will be a special teacher to teach them in the morning and afternoon.
“Frankly, these students feel inferior in the classroom and make them sometimes do not want to go to school,” he said.
“For me the challenge is to ensure that the students will be able to read and write well, so they do not feel inferior and stiff when being with other friends in the classroom,” he said.
Meanwhile, members of the Regional Representatives Council (DPRD) of Merauke, Hilarius Ulukyanan said a number of children who can not write and read well, because during elementary school, they did not get better attention from the teachers, especially in the teaching and learning activities.
