To achieve qualified teaching learning process in this level of education, it must be supported by qualified teachers too. If the teachers don’t have professionalism, they may contribute to the students’ misfortune in the future.

There are two factors influencing this phenomena (1) insufficient  professionalism of the teacher, and (2) low monitoring.
