One of the more bizarre recent tweets from TBI Kelapa Gading was one in which they proudly displayed their classroom facilities with the following quote:
Hi TBuddies! Ini lho suasana kelas dan pembelajaran di TBI Kelapa Gading, khususnya program Children.
This translates loosely as, “Hi TBuddies! This is the classroom environment at the TBI Kelapa Gading program for Kids.”
And what wonderful conditions await the people who enroll to study at TBI Kelapa Gading you ask? What facilities inspire such pride and boastfulness in the TBI authorities? A picture, they say, will paint a thousand words. So below is the picture which inspired such pride in the folks at TBI!
It really is incredible, isn’t it? What you see here is a completely unadorned room which is narrow as a storeroom or a broom closet. The walls are undecorated by a single painting, picture or chart. It looks more like a sensory deprivation cell than a lively, inviting classroom for kids. And the space between the tables is so narrow that the teacher must have to walk down the centre aisle sideways like a crab.
This barren little store-room is the best they have to boast about since the closure of the former premises of TBI Kelapa Gading, which forced them to move in with UIC, where they play the role of boarder to a second-rate Design School. My how these people are deluding themselves to boast about such a grim little classroom.
