Teacher’s Perception and Problems on School Based Curriculum Implementation

A Research on the School Based Curriculum Implementation

By Zainurrahman


School Based Curriculum or KTSP which is being applied in Indonesia is now perceived by a curriculum that gives place to the variations of the school. The curriculum is built by the school based on consideration of some internal and external significance variables related to the school itself. However, as autonomous curriculum, it also demands teacher and school to be skilled and trained. This demand then causes different perception of the teachers as the curriculum user on the KTSP. Meanwhile, curriculum as a set of education plan should be prepared and adapted based on the learning situation and future demand and because of this, in implementing KTSP teacher must deal with some problems. In other side, curriculum as a dynamic thing, will always be changed and developed. Therefore, research on the KTSP regard to the teacher’s perception and the problems the teacher deal with in implementing it is needed. The result of the research will be important as the reference or at least consideration in the curriculum development. That is why this research is put into account.

As mentioned, that this research is conducted to investigate the teacher’s perception on the KTSP and the problems the teacher “usually” deal with in implementing KTSP. Therefore, this research needs participants who are implementing KTSP or at least have implemented it. This research’s participants are teachers who have applied the KTSP and by employing electronic correspondence, this research then gathered the data needed. The data then is analyzed by employing qualitative data analysis; where the data is classified, commented, synthesized and described.

This research, finally, found that KTSP still offers the “incompleteness” and some complexities that should be considered later on. This research is hoped give an overview of teacher’s perception and the problems in KTSP implementation.
