Suara.com – Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta Ahmad Riza Patria understands that many students are not allowed to take face-to-face learning trials (PTM). However, he believes the number will increase in the future.
According to Riza, parents will understand the importance of face-to-face schools. Later this will be proven during the trial run.
“We are sure that parents will understand more, understand that learning is not all done online,” said Riza at the City Hall of DKI Jakarta, Thursday (8/4/2021).
This Gerindra politician stated that many subjects were ineffective if taught online or online. There needs to be direct interaction between teachers and students.

“Especially for certain subjects that require discussion, interaction, let alone practice,” he explained.
The way to convince parents to allow their children to join PTM is to ensure that all facilities and infrastructure at school are available. Then the health protocol for preventing the transmission of Covid-19 continues to be implemented properly.
“Later the parents will also understand and understand to what extent, the important thing is that the Provincial Government, especially the education office, strives to improve and optimize the limited learning process,” he concluded.
Previously, Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta Ahmad Riza Patria admitted that many parents in Jakarta prohibited their children from participating in face-to-face school trial activities. In fact, most students who are not granted permission are at the junior high school level.
On the first day of the opening of 85 schools yesterday, Riza said that only 20-30 percent of students get permission from their parents. Most do not allow and prefer their children to study at home.

“It turns out that I asked earlier from SD, SMP, SMA, it turns out that the higher (school level) the students are, the more parents who have not given the opportunity to school children face to face,” said Riza at the City Hall of DKI Jakarta, Thursday (8/4 / 2021).
On the other hand, said Riza, the most elementary students get permission. The reason is because elementary school children can be supervised intensely by their parents.
“There are more elementary school children because elementary school children are directly escorted by their parents, their presence is ensured,” he explained.
Meanwhile, junior high and high school students are worried that it will be difficult to supervise. In addition, most of them have to go alone using public transportation.
“The older children walk alone, they are worried in public places where trains are on buses at bus stops and other public places,” he concluded.
