“(The government) revises the recruitment regulations PPPK as a solution to overcome the emergency shortage of teachers,” said Unifah through a press release, Friday, September 24, 2021.
PGRI also asked the management of the implementation of the PPPK ASN selection to be improved so that in the future it will be more professional, transparent, and accountable. Unifah said that Indonesia’s education sector was in an emergency with a shortage of teachers.
Then, PGRI asked for the PPK selection for honorary teachers aged 35 years and over, carried out through a process between them by considering the period of service, dedication, and performance. Regarding recruitment for honorary teacher who are in the 3T area, a selection process is carried out among fellow honorary teachers in the area by considering their period of service and dedication.
The government is also asked to review the difficulty level of technical competence which places too much emphasis on cognitive aspects. The trick is to provide fair affirmations of accumulative values in the form of linearity, years of service, portfolio, achievements, selection values for managerial, socio-cultural competencies, and interviews.
Taking into account the large number of honorary teachers who did not reach the passing grade of technical competence, he said, the government had to review the validity of the test kits. The long service of honorary teachers should not be erased by the results of a technical competency test that assesses only cognitive aspects.
“Those who are declared not to meet the selection threshold will still be given the opportunity to participate in the selection in the future after going through the capacity building process,” he explained.
Finally, PGRI requested that future ASN teacher recruitment be carried out through the CPNS and PPPK channels.
