In the past ten years, boarding schools or boarding schools in Indonesia a lot of popping. especially in areas close to large cities. not in remote areas or in big cities. Education levels are generally high school. For example, in high school there Sukabumi Al Bayan Islamic School Excellence, in any high school Semarang Universe, in Makasar there Athirah high school, and much more. Rarely or hardly any boarding school for elementary school children or students. The question is whether boarding school is a trend or a solution of the present child’s education?
We can not deny the present problem the students became more complex, especially the problem of negative social and environmental influences such as drugs, smoking, fighting and other immoral acts. Especially in big cities. Teenagers are more likely to follow lifestyle and behavior that is less positive in their environment, such as a lavish lifestyle, dating, and freedom too far. This is a concern for most parents who are very concerned about the future of her son. For the parents (especially those earning more than enough) entrusts her child’s education at boarding school.
There are several advantages compared to conventional schools boarding schools. Among them are:
1. Ease of supervision. Students in boarding schools will be controlled daily, because they are not freely in and out of school, so it almost does not allow them to violence or negative influences in society.
2. Development and optimization services. Learning needs of students will continue to be facilitated and served as much as possible. This is because students are close to the source of learning, good teachers, library, internet and others.
3. Establishment of independence and maturity. Students become more independent as far as the parents so that their own personal use should be addressed. Feed themselves, wash themselves, to learn independently and manage their own time.
4. Parents work efficiency. Parents are not too busy taking care of or pay attention to her daughter and son are not too concerned about the environment is not good for her son, so the job of parents is also not disturbed and more productive in accordance with the field work.
5. Effectiveness of transportation. This is because students living complex with a school, so students need not feel tired waiting for public transportation or in crowded buses and avoid delays come in the classroom.
6. Students are more likely to interact with their peers so easy to work together and help each other if there are difficulties in learning.
7. Cultivation of moral values and also more intensive service provided to students. For children who finish school after returning home, the values that the teacher can be erased without a trace if the child has a less positive environment.
8. Coordination and communication between teachers and teachers, teachers with students or students with students more effectively.
9. Academic coaching students are also more optimal. So many of the boarding school students who won various tournaments or competitions in both academic and non academic.
And many more advantages than the boarding school with a public school that is only open from morning to afternoon or evening. It is expected the government to open a unit that is boarding school education to address issues of social and education to the children of the nation.
