Kebanyakan dari kita mungkin bisa membuat sebuah pidato, tentunya pidato berbahasa Indonesia. Tidak banyak orang yang bisa membuat pidato bahasa Inggris, tapi tidak usah khawatir. Pada kesempatan kali ini akan coba kami contohkan sebuah pidato bertema pendidikan. Berikut adalah contohnya :
Asslamualaikum wr. wb.
The honorable ones the principle of SMA Negeri 01 Cibinong, all teachers and administration staffs of SMA Negeri 01 Cibinong and all my beloved friends. I hope all of you healthy and always in good condition.
Before I begin to give a speech, I would like to invite you all to thank Allah the one and Almighty, Who has given us Mercy and Blessing, so we can meet together in this blessing place. And also let’s deliver sholawat and salam to our prophet Muhammad SAW, Who has brought us from the darkness to the brightness, so we are always in the right path.
It be a great honor for me, to stand right here in front of you all to give a speech about Education in Indonesia. Today is National Education Day or we usually called it by HARDIKNAS.
Why many people who live under poverty in Indonesia?
Indonesian is a great country. It has so many natural resources that can be used. It has so many beautiful palaces that can mesmerize people. It is so beautiful to live here peacefully with different cultures, languages, and religions. However, why are there still many people who live under poverty in this country? The only answer to this question is because our human resources are still low in the term of education.
If you have ever heard about the news about our international education rank, you would be surprised. As quoted form Education for All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report 2011 which is published by UNESCO and launched in New York on Sunday, 1/3/2011, our international education rank is at 69th place from 129 surveyed countries all over the world. This rank is lower than in 2010.
It opens a question that runs in my head, what happen with our education? Indonesia is a great country with many talented young generations. It was undoubted again that there are so many Indonesian students who win the international education Olympiads such as mathematics, chemical, physics and other. But why our international education rank is still low. So what happen with with our education?
Solution to our problem at education
There must be a reason why our human resources and our global rank in education are still low. One of the reasons is that our education is expensive. For middle up to high class people the cost of our education is nothing. But for those who live in lower economic class, the cost of our education is beyond their reach. Many of them even abandon their duty to go to school just because they have to work to fulfill their needs.
Our government has made a policy recently to overcome the problem in our education. The policy is increasing national educational budget up to 20% from APBN. This budget later on is used to make education is reachable for low economic level society; to improve teachers’ quality with a program which well known as “sertifikasi”; and to provide school facilities such as library, classroom, laboratory, and sport hall.
We hope the policy that the government made will make our educational quality better. Of course as a student, we don’t just sit down and relax without doing something. Good or bad the quality of education of our country also depend us. If we want to change our bad educational paradigm, let’s begin with improving our achievement with studying hard for the sake of our education.
I hope this speech that I deliver today will be useful for you all. Thank you so much for your attention. The last I say:
Wasalamualaikum Wr. Wb.
