Fate of 9,721 Temporary Teachers in NTB Uncertain


Chairman of the West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) Indonesian Teachers Association ,  H Ali Rahim said that the fate of the 9,721 temporary teachers who served in high schools/vocational high schools (SMA / SMK)  is uncertain  because there is no official decision  from the NTB Provincial Administration whether or not they will be hired as  temporary teachers of the  NTB Provincial administration.

A total of 9,721 temporary teachers consisted of  4,733  who teach in high schools and 4,988 teachers in SMKs.  All  are spread in state and private schools in 10 regencies / cities in NTB. According to Law Number 23 Year 2014 on Regional Administrations, all  civil servant (PNS) teachers in SMA / SMK who were previously under the regency/city administration would be hired as PNS of the  provincial administration starting in 2017.

However  the law does not regulate the fate of temporary teachers with non-civil servant status.  Therefore  Ali Rahim wanted  NTB Governor,  TGH Muhammad Zainul Majdi  to make decrees of appointment (SK) for  all temporary teachers  who had long served, to prevent imbalances in the teaching-learning process.  According to Ali Rahim, the role of temporary teachers is extraordinary.  The number of civil servant teachers in SMA/SMK in NTB totaling 5,676 people was inadequate in number to teach.

Meanwhile, the Head of the NTB Education, Youth and Sports  Agency, H.Muhammad Suruji, confirmed that there was no problem with  the fate of the temporary teachers.  All of them will automatically  become temporary teachers of  NTB Provincial Administration beginning in January 2017. In regards the request of NTB PGRI to award all temporary teachers with appointment decrees (SK) as temporary employees of the NTB Provincial Administration, Suruji disagreed. That is because it will violate Government Regulation No. 48 of 2005 on the Appointment of Temporary Workers as Full Time  Civil Servant Employees.
