JAYAPURA, Irian Jaya: The province needs 1,673 more teachers to
improve the quality of education and develop human resources in the
province, Deputy Governor JGR. Djopari said.

Speaking to The Jakarta Post on Thursday Djopari said the province
falls short of teachers for junior high schools. There are only 666
teachers for that school grade, far from the actual need of 1,744.

In junior high schools, the deficit of teachers reaches 1,078, while
in vocational schools 595 more teachers are needed, Djopari said.

He said that if the province managed to produce 400 new teachers
annually, it could meet the teachers needed in five years.(eba/dja)
