Honorary teachers have been a hot issue in the media lately after the Government made the decision to stop providing and to remove honorary personnel in 2023, November 28, 2023, to be exact.

The abolition of honorary personnel as stated in the Letter of the Minister of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Number B/185/M.SM.02. 03/2022 dated May 31, 2022. The regulation mentions the elimination of workers other than PNS and PPPK in government agencies.

There are three issues of honorary teachers in Indonesia, namely, status, welfare, and quality of teachers.

In many areas, honorary teachers do not have an educational decree. However, they can teach at school. If the teacher’s status is unclear, it can affect their welfare. The quality of honorary teachers is questionable. The recruitment system is also unclear. For example, English teachers cannot speak English.


Case of Honorary Teacher Welfare in Jakarta, Bogor, and Sukabumi

In 2022 these three regions has a regional minimum wage of around IDR 4 million per month. But in reality, honorary personnel in government institutions receive salary far from the minimum required to live in an average condition.
Mrs. Siti Aminah
Principal of Early Child Education (PAUD) As Syifa, Cakung
Timur, Jakarta. This school gets its operational fund from
several sources such as:

-Student fees are ranges from IDR 50k -70k.
They have around 25-30 students each year.
-Regular funds from Government for schools to whom 
is legally listed, around IDR 550k/semester
-GNI operational support: IDR 620k/month/teachers
This support is intended until this year(2022)

This number is still far from enough to support four
honorary teachers and the school’s daily operational cost.
Teachers usually open a private tutoring service in their
house for elementary students around
their neighborhood in their free time.
