Abstract

The primary aim of this descriptive study is to identify the extent of Professional Learning Community (PLC) implementation in elementary schools in West Java, Indonesia. Professional Learning community (PLC) is a method that teachers continuously implement to improve their competencies and motivations to achieve. Among the reasons for PLC’s little effects on teachers’ accomplishment are the facts that teachers are not too active in PLC activities and that PLC activities are not implemented continuously. Considering this problem, this study on PLC is conducted. This study employs survey on elementary school teachers in Indonesia. The findings show that majority of elementary school teachers have not implemented PLC optimally in all its dimensions (socialization, communication, comprehension, compliance and conformity, as well as its strengths and weaknesses). The results of this study are expected to contribute in the designing of an operational and well-structured PLC program that will promote teachers’ enthusiasm and motivation to implement PLC and will ensure PLC continuity to provide the best effects on teacher’s competencies development.
