BANDUNG-Head of Education Office West Java Province, Ahmad Hadadi hoped no more school-aged children in West Java who are not in school. The Jargon of 'Education for All' should be felt by all societies.
This was conveyed by Hadadi when opening "Training Writing Technique for Teachers" in Hall of SMA 3 Bandung, Friday (11/8/2017).
This training is part of the Community Service Program held by lecturer of Communication Studies Program, Faculty of Communication and Business followed by 60 high school teachers, vocational high school, and SLB from various schools in West Java.
According to Hadadi, his side has now started the Open School program. The target, in addition to students from disadvantaged families, this Open School is also to accommodate children who do not pass through the PPDB. "I target this Open School to reach 100 thousand of the 180 thousand school-aged children in West Java," he said.
Meanwhile, on the same occasion, Hadadi also expressed his support for the Technical Writing Training Program for teachers organized by lecturers of Telkom University. According to him, this training can support teachers in improving their competence and qualifications.
A similar opinion was delivered by the Chairman of the Community Service Training Program, Rana Akbari Fitriawan. According to him, this training is a proof of the campus's concern about the problems that exist in society, especially in media literacy issues.
"We are facing the problem of the low level of media literacy in Indonesian society. This training is a form of our concern so that literacy awareness especially among upper secondary teachers can increase, "he said.
Before the training began, the Head of West Java Provincial Education Office signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Telkom University on cooperation in the field of Teaching, Research, and Community Service (Tridharma Perguruan Tinggi). From Telkom University, the signing was represented by the Head of Digital Public Relations Program, Marta Tri Lestari. (MAT)
