Kampus Mengajar Supports Quality Textbook Program for Indonesian Literacy

Selasa, 18 April 2023

To increase the reading interest of the younger generation, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology has distributed 15.3 million copies of quality textbooks to more than 5,000 Early Childhood Education (PAUD) and 14,000 Elementary Schools (SD).
Among the schools that received the textbooks, 1,107 were the target schools of the Kampus Mengajar Program Batch 5. Based on this, the students participating in the Kampus Mengajar are expected to support this program through innovative approaches and programs that can increase students' interest in reading in the target schools.
With support provided by Kampus Mengajar, children in all our schools will feel more joyful and free to choose reading books that suit their interests and make reading a very enjoyable activity, said the Director General of Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education, Iwan Syahril. Iwan explained this in the Socialization of the Optimization of Children's Reading Books for Supervisors of the Teaching Campus Program Batch 5, which was held online on Tuesday, March 14, 2021.
Iwan explained, the process of improving and restoring Indonesian education needs support and cooperation from many sides. He hopes for support and mentoring from the field supervisors so that the students can optimize the books that have been distributed to the schools targeted by the Kampus Mengajar Program Batch 5.
I am sure that the chosen students assigned to the selected schools will be able to provide full support and assistance to all students towards the continuity of knowledge through the reading books that have been provided, he added.
The importance of the active role of Kampus Mengajar Program participants in supporting this policy was also emphasized by the Head of the Language Development and Fostering Agency, Aminudin Aziz. With the experience and knowledge they learn at university, students are expected to be able to create innovative learning programs to increase student's interest in reading, which will also have an impact on improving the quality of students' literacy and numeracy competencies.
With the active participation of the lecturers, students, and the Kampus Mengajar team, we believe that a bright future for our children is a must that we can prepare together, he said.
At the same time, the Head of the Teaching Campus Program and the Independent Student Exchange, Asri Aldila Putri, said that the Teaching Campus Program students socialize and assist in implementing the Ministry of Education and Culture policy in the selected schools. Therefore, lecturers and all participants can play a strategic role in the success of policies related to quality reading books.
We would greatly appreciate the support of lecturers to encourage students in schools to optimize the management of quality textbooks as a step to accelerate the improvement of students' literacy skills in schools, said Asri.(Tim MBKM/andhiko tungga alam/dzulfiqor ammar)
