One of the teachers who is also the Principal of the Filadelfia Vocational High School, Jusuf A Felubun, SPd MA., when contacted by Radar Timika, Monday (19/4,) said that he was very concerned, and at the same time strongly criticized the Separatist Group which caused two teachers’ lives to die for nothing. As educators, Jusuf said, they should not have become victims of the KKB action which has an ideology that is opposite to the Republic of Indonesia.
“We are very sorry for the brutal acts carried out by KKB in Ilaga, so that two of our colleagues had to die, this is very unfortunate,” said Jusuf.
He continued, for this brutal action he hoped that actions would be taken by the church, religious leaders/figures and the government to ensure the safety of the people there. The safety of teachers who serve the community in the field of education, especially in remote areas, must be guaranteed.
The teachers who had been withdrawn from Ilaga, continued Jusuf, felt very traumatized to return to their places of duty. For this reason, the government and more specifically the security apparatus, must really ensure a sense of security for teachers if they have to return to their assignments.
“Teachers must be given a sense of security so that they can return to their places of duty. This guarantee of security must exist because they risked their lives to teach in this remote area,” he said.
Agreeing with this, the Head of the Mimika Vocational High School (MKKS), John Lemauk, also deeply regrets the KKB’s action which took the lives of teachers there. The teachers who should have been protected, were victims of the KKB’s outrage. They certainly did not imagine that they would become victims of the KKB terror where they carrying out their duties. In response to this, the security apparatus and the state, he said, needed to provide a sense of security above all, so that in the future teachers would no longer be futile victims.
“Security is the most important thing. This must be a guarantee for us teachers to serve where we work. Do not sacrifice our lives in vain for the sake of educating the nation’s children,” he said. (AMI)
