Purwakarta Regency Allocates Rp 10 Billion for Religion Teachers


The Regency  Administration (Pemkab) of Purwakarta allocated a budget of Rp 10 billion to hire hundreds of teachers from the  five religions recognized by the government. This budget has come  from the changed subsidy allocations handled by the provincial administration (Pemprov) for high schools in 2017. This was explained by  Purwakarta Regent, Dedi Mulyadi in a meeting with interfaith figures, on Monday (10/10).

Dedi said that the budget for the religion teachers prepared was around Rp 1 million to Rp 1.5 million per month per teacher. He asked the Islam Religion teachers to teach students how to read the Koran.

While for the  non-Muslim students in Purwakarta, Dedi  ensures that they would receive their  rights to obtain religious education. This was because the policy does not only apply  for the Muslim students alone. The Purwakarta Pemkab has planned to assign one Islamic teacher for each school. As for the  non-Muslim students they would  be gathered in one school accompanied by one religion teacher based on the faith of the students.

He added that the presence of the teachers and researcher in religious studies  who are placed  in these schools would not interfere with the  religious education lessons in the curriculum. According to him, the religious lessons would continue to be conducted as usual  in accordance with the rules in the set curriculum.
