Assalamu’alaikum Wr Wb
Ladies and Gentlemen Let’s thank Allah for His mercy and blessing, so that we can meet here to have this lovely program. Peace be upon our prophet Muhammad, his family, and his companion.
In this delight occasion, I would like to talk about the problem of our national education. I have one big question for you: Have the result of education in Indonesia been satisfactory?
The answer is NOT YET You know, the result of our education is supposed to create students who afraid and get close to Allah or Taqwa and have high quality in mastering science and technology. However, what a pity when we see the reality that the result is nothing except the students mastering in juvenile delinquency, such as: making a date, student fighting, drug abuse, and many others.
Only a few number of them who are serious in their study. We can count by fingers of our friends who are smart and get close to Allah. Then, why does this condition happen?
These problems appear because many kinds of aspects: The first thing is about the educational system in Indonesia. We admit or not, our education tends to imitate the western countries that separate between the religious lesson and the worldly affairs. It is also a pity that the religious lesson only gets a small amount of time in our schedule, only two hours a week.
The second one is that the education today is supposed like a business. The educational staff prefer think how to get the financial profit to think the quality of the output. The teachers have also less responsibility in this problem. Most of the teachers only transfer the science and knowledge, but take a little attention to the spiritual and personality of the students. The other aspect contribute to the problem is that the family and the environment have lack attention to the students. Today, there are many mothers busy working and ignore to the children.
The environments are also permissive to some juvenile delinquency. Dear friend, we must change the problem; otherwise we will become the next victim. We must think over the cause of the problems and overcome these before it gets worse. The governments should rethink about the educational system and give more portions to religious and personality lesson.
The teachers, family and society should be more serious in teaching and paying attention to the students or to the young generations.
Okay, I think it’s enough for now. Thanks for your attention
