“Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.” ― Aristotle
Couple days ago, Indonesia celebrated the teachers day. Althouogh the date is different with world teachers day – October, 5th - which is celebrated by some countries across the world, Indonesia has the special reason. November, 25th as teachers day in Indonesia, was caused by the day was the born day of Persatuan Guru Seluruh Indonesia-PGRI (Teacher Association across Indonesia).
PGRI was founded because teachers across Indonesia needed a tool to collaborate their efforts to spread education throughout Indonesia. At the time, Indonesia higly required rife teachers, as educator.
Nowadays, PGRI seems like rags. Not many people care about their existence, even their members also dont really know what aims of the organization. It makes the challenge for education in Indonesia ; getting worst.
