Pendidikan Reproduktif

Pastikan pendidikan kita bentuk rakyat berakhlak

Rencana ditulis oleh Ketua Kluster Pendidikan dan Pembangunan Modal Insan, Majlis Profesor Negara

PENGGAL baharu sekolah sudah hampir sebulan. Diharap ada banyak penambahbaikan

pada 2018, manakala gejala buruk tidak berulang lagi.

Namun, masalah buli sama ada di sekolah atau institusi pendidikan tinggi sejak dulu menghantui guru, ibu bapa dan masyarakat. Masalah ini sudah lama berlaku dan mungkin terus berlaku, kecuali pihak terbabit berusaha membendungnya.

Apabila kes buli terjadi, heboh seluruh negara dan jadi bahan berita di media arus perdana atau media sosial. Perbincangan dan cadangan diberi untuk mengatasi masalah ini. Ada cadangan bernas dan patut diberi perhatian oleh pihak berkenaan. Ada juga menyalahkan pihak tertentu walaupun perbicaraan tidak dilakukan.

Jika diambil pandangan progressivisme falsafah pendidikan di Amerika Syarikat (AS) mengikut pandangan John Dewey, pendidikan adalah penghidupan dan bukan persediaan untuk penghidupan. Berbanding falsafah pendidikan tradisional essensialisme dan perennialisme yang menyatakan, pendidikan adalah persediaan untuk penghidupan.

Jika kita berpegang falsafah pendidikan progressivisme, sekolah patut menyediakan persekitaran mirip sebuah masyarakat. Ahlinya yang melakukan kesalahan perlu ditangkap dan dibicarakan. Anggaplah pengawas sebagai polis dan guru disiplin sebagai ketua pengawas. Perbicaraan dilakukan di mahkamah sekolah. Keputusan perbicaraan mesti berlandaskan bukti dan hujah serta diterima semua pihak. Apa yang berlaku di sekolah perlu dimaklumkan kepada ibu bapa dan masyarakat supaya menerima proses dilakukan dalam komuniti sekolah ini.

Jika kita berpegang kepada falsafah pendidikan essensialisme atau perennialisme, falsafah tradisional berpusatkan guru, mementingkan disiplin murid dan pembentukan adab atau akhlak. Semuanya di bawah pengawasan guru dan tindakan guru adalah betul sebab mereka berpengalaman serta menjadi rujukan.

Guru mesti mempunyai tingkah laku baik agar menjadi ikutan murid. Pembentukan akhlak bukan dibiarkan begitu sahaja dan mengharapkan murid belajar sendiri sama ada melalui kawan, guru, ibu bapa, masyarakat, pembacaan dan pengalaman dalam kehidupan.

Ajar adab

Adab atau akhlak mesti diajar. Di sekolah, Pendidikan Moral diajar kepada murid bukan Islam. Mereka belajar nilai murni untuk menjadi orang baik daripada Tahun Satu sehingga ke pengajian tinggi. Murid Islam sepatutnya mempelajari adab melalui Pendidikan Islam. Persoalannya, sejauh manakah mereka diajar akhlak melalui pelajaran Tauhid, Fekah, al-Quran, atau Hadis. Mampukah mereka menjadi insan yang baik?

Mungkin kaedah pengajaran boleh diubah, bukan kepada hafalan untuk tujuan peperiksaan, tetapi lebih kepada pemahaman dan amalan. Isu buli bukan masalah besar kepada murid, tetapi ia tetap perlu dibendung supaya tidak merebak dan menjadi bertambah buruk.

Pembentukan akhlak dan pendidikan moral penting bukan sahaja untuk mengawal buli, tetapi sebagai proses pembentukan akhlak murid, supaya boleh menjalani penghidupan dalam masyarakat berbilang kaum di negara ini.

Masyarakat dan majikan memerlukan generasi berpengetahuan serta berkemahiran yang menghayati nilai murni, berbudi pekerti tinggi dan dapat menyumbang kepada kehidupan sejahtera.

Hakikatnya, pendidikan berjaya memberi pengetahuan dan kemahiran, tetapi masih mencari-cari cara terbaik memastikan murid menghayati nilai murni, nilai sosial serta pembentukan akhlak dan moral yang baik.

Kandungan peperiksaan banyak tertumpu kepada menguji pengetahuan (kognitif) dan kemahiran (psikomotor); kurang menguji atau menilai nilai murni dan sosial serta akhlak (afektif). Ini cabaran besar kepada pendidik sejak dahulu.

Di negara Barat, pendidikan karakter atau pendidikan nilai di sekolah dikatakan gagal kerana terlalu banyak program bertentangan dilaksanakan, kekurangan atau ketiadaan standard dalam pendidikan nilai dan juga bagaimana serta oleh siapa ia dilaksanakan.

Dalam masyarakat majmuk, ada pihak yang mungkin menyoal nilai siapa yang hendak diterapkan? Pendidikan karakter atau pendidikan nilai dikatakan tidak menghasilkan sebarang peningkatan dalam tingkah laku atau prestasi akademik murid.

Di Amerika Syarikat, jabatan pendidikan mendapati kebanyakan program pendidikan karakter gagal membuktikan keberkesanannya. Warga pendidik tidak harus kecewa dengan kegagalan, tetapi biar kegagalan menjadi cabaran untuk kita terus berusaha mencari cara terbaik.

KUALA LUMPUR 20 Nov.- Sektor pendidikan terutamanya sekolah-sekolah kebangsaan perlu memperbanyakkan lagi penggunaan alat-alat teknologi bagi merealisasikan hala tuju pembangunan negara dalam bidang Sains, Teknologi, Kejuruteraan dan Matematik (STEM).

Menteri Pendidikan, Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid berkata, ketika ini beberapa sekolah sudah mempunyai papan tulis pintar (smartboard) dan tablet untuk kegunaan pembelajaran tetapi memerlukan lebih banyak pendedahan dari masa ke semasa.

“Salah satu kehendak pendidikan negara dalam Pelan Pembangunan Pendidikan Malaysia (PPPM) 2013-2025 adalah Sains, Teknologi, Kejuruteraan dan Matematik (STEM), kita mahukan guru-guru yang serba boleh dalam teknologi untuk pendidikan masa depan.

“Ketika ini terdapat beberapa buah sekolah sahaja yang mempunyai alat-alat teknologi seperti papan tulis pintar dan peralatan pintar malah tidak banyak yang mempunyai jalur lebar yang bagus jadi ini yang perlu diperbaiki,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika merasmikan majlis penutup Kejohanan Robotik Dunia Peringkat Kebangsaan 2017 di sini hari ini.

SEX EDUCATION: Teenagers need safe outlet to explore subject

14 November 2012 | last updated at 07:39AM

By Iza Zakhizuin Zaki, Universiti Teknologi Mara, Shah Alam, Selangor | letters@nstp.com.my 0 comments

THE issue of incorporating sex education in school has surfaced once again after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak stated in the Dewan Rakyat recently that 6,820 girls aged below 16 had given birth out of wedlock in the past 10 years.

.Explaining what will be taught in sex education classes will sex education is to be done can be a huge help gain in getting the public’s trust on the issue.

1 / 1

One suggested course of action to combat teen pregnancies was introducing sex education into the core syllabus of Year Six and Form Three students.

I would like to acknowledge that the problems surrounding teen pregnancies stem from a lack of reliable information on reproductive and sexual health among youth.

Introducing sex education could be a great way to educate teenagers. However, the idea of incorporating sex education at an early stage is also worrying.

At this age where children should be playing with toys, is it a good step to expose them to sex? Would they be able to accept it?

We have to accept the fact that with current progress in technology and the Internet, teens can find out about sex with just a click of a button.

Whether their parents realise it or not, teenagers these days are being exposed to mixed, unrealistic and confusing messages about sex on television, the Internet and from their friends.

That is why it is better for the information to be taught in a proper manner, rather than letting them find out by themselves. Introducing teenagers to sex could help counter any incorrect concept of sex.

Plus, teenagers need a safe outlet to explore all of the confusing thoughts and feelings that have to do with sex without being judged. Rather than posting the question in online forums and getting the wrong advice, they need a place where they can ask questions and get accurate answers.

Unfortunately, many parents are not prepared to answer those kind of questions or feel that the child is not ready for the answers.

With teachers to discuss with and guide them about the issue in school, teenagers might be able to open up.

Who knows, besides curbing teen pregnancies, we might even be able to detect sexual harassment or rape cases involving some of them.

However, teachers have to be careful that they are educating, not confusing or putting fear, into their minds.

Malaysia is a multiracial, multi-religious and multicultural nation with each ethnic group having its own notion on the subject.

That makes teaching sex education in schools more challenging.

I believe the government should inform the public about what will be included in the sex education syllabus.

It is essential, especially for the parents, to be aware of what their children are going to learn.

Until today, no one has seen the syllabus or been told how the teaching is to be done, and that creates doubt about the plan.

Explaining what will be taught and how will help get the public’s trust on the issue.

Heng: Teachers’ training may include sex education

KUALA LUMPUR: Teachers’ training may include sex education to address the social issues facing the students.

Deputy Women, Community and Family Development Minister Datuk Heng Sai Kee said the ministry mooted the idea to the Education Ministry recently to see if sex education could become part of syllabus at the teachers training colleges.

She noted that sex education was now taught as part of health science for Year One to Year Four students with future modules to include social related issues.

“This will allow teachers, in particular those giving counseling, to also teach students on the dangers and consequences of pre-marital sex, including the laws on statutory rape,” ,” she told reporters.

At present, she said that an eight-week pilot programme to teach students of the dangers of pre-marital sex had been introduced as part of the school curriculum for students finishing their UPSR examinations in Sept and PMR students in October.

Some 6,820 pregnancies and births involving girls below 16 were recorded between 2000 and Oct 9, 2012.

Heng said 67 teachers have been selected from rural, urban and special schools to undergo training courses before the start of the programme.

On a separate issue, Heng said the ministry backed the Government’s move to amend statutory rape laws to take away the courts discretion in binding over first time youth offenders.

Some 5,976 statutory rape cases were recorded between 2007 and August this year. Of the cases, 5,115 were charged resulting in 1,631 convictions.

KUALA LUMPUR: A pilot programme to teach students of the dangers of out-of-wedlock sex has been introduced as part of the school curriculum last month as a means to prevent incidents of teen pregnancies amongst girls below 16.

The move was amongst the steps taken by Women, Community and Family Development Ministry to address the social issue which recorded over 6,000 teen pregnancies and births involving girls below 16 since 2000.

“Based on data of the National Registration Department, a total of 6,820 pregnancies and births involving girls below 16 were recorded between 2000 and Oct 9 2012,” the ministry said in a written reply to Chong Eng (DAP-Bukit Mertajam) in Parliament.

The pliot project, in cooperation of the Education Ministry, teaches Year 6 and Form Three pupils of the risks and dangers of sex via the Reproductive Health and Social programme.

The programme was based on the Reproductive Health Adolescents module of the Federation of Reproductive Health Associations.

“The programme was implemented as part of the curriculum for Standard Six and Form Three students after their respective UPSR, PMR and special students examinations in selected schools nationwide beginning September,” it stated.

The ministry said that 67 teachers were given training to teach 1,360 students on the dangers and risks of unmarried sex during the programme held between Sept 8 and 10.

Parents need to educate kids on sex

Sunday September 23, 2012

http://thestar.com.my/education/story.asp?file=/2012/9/23/education/12003388&sec=education
THE report “Frank and factual approach” in StarEducate (Sept 9) was an informative piece and deserves to be taken seriously by all parents and teachers.

Teaching children the facts on sex and sexual development needs to be done with care, sensitivity and in a holistic manner.

Coping with changes in sexual development is an issue every child must face, and the challenge is even more critical for children during their formative years. Educators and parents must therefore regard sexuality as part of human drives and needs that must be correctly channelled.

The necessity for giving correct information about sexual development and sexuality to children is of great importance. Children nowadays are exposed to knowledge about sex through the mass media, Internet, books, movies, their peers and relationships.

And if they are being misled and not taught to differentiate between what is appropriate and what is not, they are most likely going to end up exhibiting inappropriate behaviour or falling victims to evil and unscrupulous adults.

Parents can and must play an important role in imparting knowledge of sex to their young ones. Children must be taught to know that they could be used as objects by some adults to gratify their deviant sexual needs.

One very critical area is the need to inform the kids as to what constitutes “appropriate and inappropriate touching” and parents need to emphasise this aspect to their young sons and daughters.

A child needs to be constantly reminded about who, how, when and where he or she is touched. It could be when a child is visiting a doctor or in a classroom.

Gone are the days when we reminded our children to be wary of strangers, these days we have to remind them to look out for neighbours, friends and even relatives.

After all, it has been proven that many cases of sexual abuse involving children are committed by people who are known to the victim, some of whom are “trusted” family members.

I think that parents must open up and be willing to talk and communicate with their children on all matters relating to sex, physical and mental abuse.

Today, sex education is indeed important and practical as we cannot expect teenagers to follow rules blindly without knowing why they should follow them. It is important to explain to our youngsters the need to abstain from sex especially unprotected sex until after marriage.

Children must be taught responsible sexual behaviour from the time they are ready for such instruction. It is also vital to teach them safety and preventive measures so that they will know how to handle situations should they be sexually assaulted or abused.

The many rape cases involving young girls and abandoned babies are worrying and we all can play a role by reducing and even preventing these tragedies.

A sound sexual education will save the child untold stress from guilt, fear, remorse, pain and retribution in the future.

Children are our greatest hope and they must be treated with respect and dignity.
