REFLECTIVE TEACHERS

A book about Reflective Teaching suggests teachers to reflect on their teaching and to continuously learn. How about teachers in Indonesia? Do they have time to do so? IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THEY DON’T. I was a bit shocked when reading news from a friend form Dikti milis, more than one thousand teachers in Riau, Sumatera, had to turun pangkat from IVa to IVb because they didn’t write their own paper for the promotion. Instead, they used a service from an agent. See, they do not have time to put aside some time in their daily life to sit down, reflect, and write something about their teaching. What to be done about that?
