Indonesia Bermutu in cooperation with Kanwil Kemenag DKI Jakarta held a seminar and focus group discussion (FGD) with a theme “Merealisasi Madrasah Bermutu Universal” in Jakarta on Saturday (24/9). This seminar and FGD were attended by researchers from Indonesia Bermutu, Kanwil Kemenag DKI Jakarta, headmasters, supervisors and teachers of Madrasah Ibtidaiyah (MI), Madrasah Tsanawiyah (MTs) and Madrasah Aliyah (MA) in DKI Jakarta.
Head of Kanwil Kemenag DKI, Abdurrahman, said that madrasah has all potential to be of better quality than general schools. He said that, someday, madrasah will become parents’ primary and first choice for their children’s education. Education in a madrasah actually provides the perfect education for life as it combines all students’ potential to be happy on earth and in heaven.
In regard to this, Kanwil Kemenag DKI has prepared various strategies to realize universal qualified madrasah. One of them is working together with Indonesia Bermutu for planning, implementation and evaluation of program of strengthening madrasah.
Chairman of Indonesia Bermutu, Awaluddin Tjalla, believed that the cooperation between Kanwil Kemenag will accelerate the achievement of Indonesia Bermutu’s dreams to improve the quality of education of madrasah. He invited all educational personnel of madrasah, especially Kanwil Kemenag, to work together in developing the Curriculum of Universal Qualified Madrasah.
Indonesia Bermutu Advisor, Bahrul Hayat revealed that quality Madrasah must become a place where students are educated and guided to live a meaningful life. He added that quality madrasah has seven types of intelligence, namely, academic, spiritual, moral, emotional, environmental, pedagogical and managerial. Bahrul believed that these qualities will be able to build the universal qualified madrasah.
