Abstract

Javanese was the language with the greatest number of first language speakers in Indonesia, but the percentage of the population who spoke it as their first language was declining. Before 1990, regional languages were used as the medium of instruction in the first three grades of primary school in many places, and this was common in Javanesespeaking areas. Since 1990, it is government policy that Indonesian should be used as the language of education from kindergarten through to university. However, another government policy was promulgated in various forms between 1989 and 1993 which requires the teaching of one compulsory local content subject and up to three optional subjects in the primary education curriculum alongside the national curriculum. This policy has allowed Javanese to reappear in schools, but as a taught subject rather than as the medium of instruction. In the Special Region of Yogyakarta, Javanese has been a compulsory subject in schools from year 1 to year 9 since 1995, allotted two teaching hours per week, and in Central Java it has even become a compulsory subject for students in years 10 – 12 of high school since 2006. The problem is what this way is effective to maintain the javanese language in java. As the compulsory subject, the javanese is provided in two hour in one week. It is not enough for the students to learn the javanese and its’ culture.So it can not guarantee if the students able to use javanese in communication So this article will try to find The Effectiveness of Javanese As A Compulsory Local Content Subject In The Primary Education Curriculum To Mainain The Javanese Language In Java. The writer will use the quantitative method to find the Effectiveness of Javanese As A Compulsory Local Content Subject In The Primary Education Curriculum. The sample will be taken from some students which obtain javanese as compulsory subject at the class. Some suggestion are needed to the students, the teacher, and the goverment. The students have to learn javanese outside of the class because it is not enough to master javanese language and then it will be used in daily activities for communication. Beside that the teachers must be aware if javanese as a compulsory subject is not enough to make the students using javanese in communication so they can be motivator and a model in using javanese for communication. The goverment have to provide the javanese language subject not only two hour in one week but more than it.
