competitiveness. This example of teachers who are less improvised and selective recruitment. "If
teachers perform routine tasks without the development of students' potential to produce the crude
quality of education too," said Subroto Drs education consultant on education seminar in the School of
Islamic Revolution in Jakarta, Saturday (20 / 4). Human resource weakness, continued Subroto,
exacerbated by the presence of teachers who teach subjects that do not comply with the educational
background. For this one Subroto suggested that teachers get coaching, training, or upgrading, through
the activities of similar groups of subject teachers. Matter of recruitment of teachers, he said, should
this be done with a rigorous selection, so there is always a commitment to achievement. Subroto also
gives emphasis on learning methods that can improve the competitiveness of Islamic schools. According
to him, these schools should implement a method that focuses on student activities. Because by
focusing on the method of learning as such, teachers are able to develop morally, basic knowledge of
creativity, and learn how their students learn. "This course will help create competitiveness among
students at Islamic schools," he said. To enhance competitiveness, further Subroto, Islamic schools
should abandon the methods which rely on classical learning with teachers as a learning resource

orientation. Each Islamic school must have a need for orientation towards competitiveness. "This would
make the majority of Muslims who can contribute even more in building their country," said Fathoni told

created great public interest towards education that gives the color of Islam. But they are not. Especially
during this time many Muslims who view the community, schools outside of Islam are even more
advanced. "With this orientation, then Muslims in particular who ran the schools are expected to
understand the situation and the potential that exists within him." Fathoni ago menyontohkan madrasas
that have great potential but its orientation is not clear where he is going. He said during this race
participation in creating competitiveness is very low. The Islamic leaders, he added, should participate to
create competitiveness. Ministry of Education alone, he continued, hoping Islamic schools take
advantage of existing opportunities to improve competitiveness. Even so Fathoni optimistic Islamic
schools will be more competitive in the future good. "It's already started popping up Islamic schools
with orientation awareness in them," he explained.

school. He is the master and driver's school." Principal, Arief added, must have a personality that can
ward off all problems that can weaken the resistance of the wheels and the school. In addition, teachers
should be able to provide the transfer is not only science but of values. Teachers, said Arief, should be
able to internalize the teachings of Islam to his students, so be aware as a man. "The ability of teachers
to transfer value will make the students not only honed his wits but also the potential of faith . They will
have a competitive edge as well as backrest strong faith in their Lord, "he explained. To realize this, they
must have a good competence of personality, intellectual, and professional.
