SBI International School Standart - Facing Realites that's Occured In Society

Parents hopefully would be able to send their children to the best school. The criteria of good school by parents are the school that have promoting the quality of education, school which is supported by high infrastructure and technologies. Magnificent school buildings, supporting facilities complete super, teachers who imported from abroad, as well as English as the medium, even in other foreign languages, is one feature of the international school which has become the contemporary school choice. Let's look at the phenomenon in today's society. How big is the role of schools and parents in addressing the international school or normal in SBI?

Entering a new school year in 2010, all the parents in Indonesia was busy looking for the best school for their children and also schools that 'fits' with the size of their pockets. Things like this (sort of panic from the parents) have the plural we see from year to year in the community. Like a time bomb. Ready to explode when it enters the new school year. Because, as we all know that nearly 50 percent of the population of Indonesia by BPS-Statistics-2010, is a grassroots community groups and was still at the poverty line. Approximately 70 percent of whom are disadvantaged rural communities. So, what can we expect from a noble ideals of this SBI!

Quoted from a media in Jakarta, a psychologist Jacinta F. Rini, Msi said that international schools prepare their students to have a personality and insight into the "international" on par with children in other parts of the world, including the values and ethics. "So not only smart and clever, especially if it is only smart to memorize," he said.

'Excellence' is now being sought for the parents 'capable' financially to have their children receive the best education. One is the Paramita (39), which included his eldest son, Edwin (7) in Jakarta, Singapore School. Although the costs have to spend quite expensive, about 4000 Singapore dollars per two semesters, but admitted Paramita very satisfied with the progress made by Edwin.
We honestly say that, many schools in Indonesia which is still below standard. Both the quality of teaching staff and curriculum are not providing enough useful lessons for the future of children. Used in ways that are also still one-way, stimulate their thinking about children, and less freedom for children to give opinions and be creative. By studying the pattern of this, children will experience a big challenge if he was in "international" because the mentality is not ready to manage freedom.
International schools should ideally provide lunch for their students to be ready to jump to face global competition. Therefore, before choosing a school, you should consider whether the school owners and managers know what is meant by the international.

The fact that happened in the Internal School:
Indeed, our educators are not ready to face changes in the existing system. This is proven in a routine discussion, Education Sharing Network themed 'International School, Challenge For Educators' which took place in Jakarta, Tuesday, April 14, 2010. The event was attended by public and private school teachers from different areas of Greater Jakarta, and even representatives from Makassar, South Sulawesi. Highlighted four main challenges faced by teachers in the homeland.

According to Luh Gede Puspini Rini, Director of International Programs and Public Relations The Global Achievement School, the four challenges that they faced were related to the readiness of the international school policy as stipulated in Law No.20 Year 2003 regarding National Education System (UUSPN 20/2003). Four vebral challenge is the ability of English communication, academic skills, teaching strategies, and standardize the SBI teacher.
The conclusion of these discussions, teachers and education providers will now have to prepare an adequate process of teaching and learning process in the SBI. Starting a new student selection, curriculum to enrich the content standards on Education Standards (NSP) plus internaional curriculum, as well as professionals.
International school (SBI) is a national school level in Indonesia with international quality standards. SBI development in Indonesia is based on Law no. 20 Year 2003 on National Education System Article 50 Paragraph 3, which reads:
'Government and or local government held at least one unit of education at all levels of education to be developed into an international educational unit. "
In this provision, the government is encouraged to develop an international educational unit.
The international standard is required in SBI Graduates Competency Standards, Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, Human Resources, Facilities, Management, Financing, and Valuation of international standards. In SBI, the process of learning and teaching are delivered in two languages ie English and Indonesian.

Facts in the community about the SBI:
Going to a school with the status of SBI is not as easy as that envisioned by the parents and prospective students. They are not smart enough to just capitalized, plus able to speak English to prospective students. However, prospective students must also be supported by parents 'good enough' financially.
The high cost of schooling in Indonesia became a major scourge to prospective students and parents. It is undeniable that if the existence of such an international status, each school is required to improve itself, especially in terms of facilities. With the existence of an additional facility which, of course, comply with international standard facilities, the parties, especially school education providers for raising tuition fees.

The SBI schools located in the district, the average tuition charge of USD 200 thousand to 400 thousand per student in each month. Plus the cost of bearing the logo 'voluntary contribution' amounted to Rp 3 million to 10 million. Plus the cost to buy uniforms, books and other extracurricular activities. As an illustration, within one month every parents' money shall be budgeted with the assumption of at least 450 thousand; the cost of voluntary contributions SPP = Rp 200 thousand + 250 thousand (three million/12 months) = 450 thousand/month.

The poor students have no chance to attend schools of SBI, because it is plagued by high cost of education.This causes them to move to the outskirts of schools with low cost and quality is still inferior to the school of SBI. So the impression that the school SBI inhabited only by people with money can not be avoided.
Furthermore, it will cause the gap between rich and poor. Surely we've learned that most of what can go RSBI are children of rich people who remember the cost was so great. Maybe the government will be denied by saying that all students have equal opportunity to get into the school SBI. But with a very large cost, the facts will speak another. Unlikely that students from poor families can afford to pay money donations and fees are so large.
The result is that people's having money can follow quality education and the poor remain in poverty and can not follow a quality school education. Schools where there is free, only government subsidized tuition. If this is allowed there will be gaps opportunity to obtain quality education among the public. This could threaten the social integration within society. How about your opinion?
