The lady born in Yogyakarta, 25 February 1960, observed that the reading problem in the first and second year of Elementary School often goes undetected by their teacher. The teacher tends to consider it normal. Meanwhile, in her opinion, this is actually the initial point of the problem. “Most often this problem is felt when the children are in third or fourth year of elementary school when they are demanded to study and master learning materials,” she explained.
Genesiska, chair of team, said that they offered a solution to Indonesian agriculture to deal with the free trade era by plant breeding strategy. That needs to be done bearing in mind that Indonesian agriculture is not yet independent in meeting agricultural demands. “Often there is a gap between consumption and production, especially horticulture products as main food. “The right, systematic and sustainable plant breeding, supported by the community, will help improve seed agribusiness,” she explained on Friday (4/6).
In her opinion, the improvement is much required because production values and plant harvests rely heavily on seed price and availability. Indonesia will remain a consumptive country dependable on imported seeds if not taking strategic steps immediately. "A strategy to solve this problem is needed to increase agriculture productivity. One of the steps is to provide quality seed as pre-production sub-system,” he added.
Sigit Dwi Maryanto added that plant breeding can be implemented to increase agribusiness. A cycle, however, needs to be made correctly and sustainably. "Afterwards, the product of plant breeding can be produced through mutual relations between Indonesian seed producers and seed plasm, particularly farmers. This way, the price and benefit to be gained can be adjusted to the market condition. It is hoped that the price of seed is no more expensive than that of imported one to encourage farmers to use local seeds,” he explained.
In that condition, teacher often considered them problematic because they disturb the learning process, and they cannot sit quietly, not participating or taking notes, not doing the homework, and not completing the tasks. On the other hand, the negative behavior has appeared because of their incompetence and inconfidence. “In other words, the negative behavior is a compensation of negative feelings related with the low motivation to improve their skills. These children also have problems in motivating themselves,” the visiting teacher of graduate program of several universities in Yogyakarta explained.
According to Amitya, the role and position of parents are very significant for children’s language skill development. The quality of interaction between children and parents proves to improve grammatical accuracy and is significant for language skill development. “The children's environment has a role in activating language development, because good language development needs good material and environment that support it,” said the writer of Parent’s Active Role on Children's Written Expression in Journal of Psychology year 1999.
