Abstract
Education in elementary school is a determining factor to produce students with good characters and morality. Recently, the dynamics of Indonesian education is significantly changing. This change ranges from the advancement of science and technology to curriculum shifting, and, to the most recent controversial full-day school program. This descriptive research aims at describing elementary school teachers' readiness in the implementation of full-day school. The sample is from 100 elementary school teachers from a number of schools in some sub-district in Gorontalo regency. Each is chosen randomly and entirely by chance. The indicators of this research are (1) teachers' willingness, (2) ability, and (3) motivation. The results report that teachers' willingness in implementing full-day school is at 77.20% (good). Furthermore, the percentages on the ability and motivation are at 72.67% (good) and 69.71% (sufficient) respectively. The data distribution on the scope of willingness is 80.85% (good), 76.79% (good), and 77.20% (good) for teachers' enthusiasm, confidence, and enjoyment correspondingly. In the range of motivation, it is reported that teachers' knowledge is at 72.30% (good) and skill is at 73.03% (good). The statistical reports on the aspects of motivation, such as physical working conditions, social conditions, and individual needs, are at 76.68%, 65.71% (sufficient), and 66.75% (sufficient) respectively. These results suggest evaluation on the implementation policy of full-day school in Gorontalo regency.
