This presentation criticizes the overemphasis on teacher characteristics in the discussion about teacher evaluation. Teacher evaluation should take into account situational characteristics that are faced by teachers, which may hinder the implementation of quality teaching. Moreover, the over-realiance on precise measurement may distract us from the main educational goals that we all want as a society. Thus, we need to reframe our thoughts and assumptions in discussing teacher evaluation.

"Murid bisa belajar di mana saja, kapan saja, dan dengan siapa saja.  Kurikulum, melalui guru, harus menyesuaikan murid, bukan sebaliknya.  Dalam perspektif ini, kita tidak membutuhkan Kurikulum Nasional. Kita butuh standar nasional yang bersifat generik.  Kurikulum Tingkat Satuan Pendidikan (KTSP) sebenarnya sudah cukup baik, namun tidak terlaksanakan oleh guru yang kompeten yang berani secara kreatif merancang proses pembelajaran yang paling sesuai bagi murid-muridnya. Saya khawatir ikhtiar Kemendikbud kali ini akan sia-sia (lagi) dan Kurikulum 2013 akan menjadi perencanaan kegagalan pendidikan dan kita bakal menuai tagihan demografi, bukan bonus demografi."

"As a student, I want to be taught how to think and create and explore. I’m not a number in a spreadsheet; I’m a creative and motivated human being. I want my teachers to be paid well, given autonomy and treated like professionals. I want my school to be adequately funded. Is that too much to ask?"

"It is no accident that in America today the gap between the very rich and everyone else is wider than at any time since the Gilded Age. Now, as then, the titans are seeking an even greater political voice to match their economic power. Now, as then, the inevitable danger is that they will confuse their own self-interest with the common good. The irony of the political rise of the plutocrats is that, like Venice’s oligarchs, they threaten the system that created them."

Karena pendidikanlah bangsa Indonesia bangun, bangkit dari keterkukungan visi dunia yang sempit. Pendidikan menjadi kunci terciptanya kesadaran perlunya persatuan dalam mencapai cita-cita bersama sebuah bangsa. Sukarno, Hatta, Syahrir, merupakan sebagian kecil dari bangsa Indonesia yang merasakan pendidikan tinggi pada zaman itu. Pendidikan menginspirasi mereka menjadi manusia tangguh, cerdas dan tangkas dalam memperjuangkan kemerdekaan Indonesia, dan mereka berhasil! Apakah pendidikan yang dikecap oleh pelajar kita saat ini dapat membekali mereka dalam menghadapi perubahan zaman abad ke-21 sebagaimana generasi Budi Utomo, generasi 1928, dan generasi 1945? Menurut saya ada 5 prinsip yanng harus dipenuhi pendidikan Indonesia untuk dapat bertransformasi dengan baik di abad 21...(Silakan baca artikel selengkapnya di http://edukasi.kompasiana.com/2013/08/18/proklamasi-dan-transformasi-pendidikan-indonesia-abad-ke-21-585038.html

"Malala was fighting for the right to education — the highest long-term investment in containing Talibanization. Only education can bring about a change in the radical mind-set. Malala has become a beacon of light. She has won."

"Our choices this election come too late for Scott, although I hope that my friend from tiny Silverton, Ore., who somehow beat the odds so many times already in his life, will also beat this cancer. The election has the potential to help save the lives of many others who don’t have insurance."
