Teacher and Lecturer Law-Based Policy Analysis Related to Teacher Profession Improvement and Standardization of Educators and Education in Indonesia
Along with the rapid development of the times, teachers are required to improve their quality in order to be able to become professional educators. The issuance of the Teacher and Lecturer Law aims to improve national education, both in quality and quantity, so that Indonesian human resources can be more faithful, creative, innovative, productive, and knowledgeable in order to improve the welfare of the entire nation. Improving the quality of national education includes the national education system, the qualifications and competence of teachers and lecturers, the curriculum standards used, and other matters. In this study, using the library research method, studies related to various existing writings or literature in the form of books, journals, articles, theses, and other relevant sources originating from the internet were used. Research shows that the existence of the Teacher and Lecturer Law is one of the legal umbrellas that is being studied in educational law. Since the existence of the Teacher and Lecturer Law, teachers have been recognized as professional educators, the UUGD indicates that the model for implementing professional teacher education in Indonesia tends to be sequential. However, on the other hand, the model of professional teacher education is concurrent, and this model is still used by LPTK institution. As well as standards for measuring teacher performance in professional competence, there are four teacher competencies (or teacher professional standards): pedagogic, personality, social, and professional competence.
