Despite the noble intentions, the pedagogic implications of the implementation remain uncertain. With the current Anglophone crisis, the much talked about ‘living together’ is threatened by a linguistic divide which, undeniably, has a huge toll on the cultural heritage of the two linguistic communities in the country. One wonders why after more than half a century; official bilingualism is not yet a living reality among school leavers. In teacher training institutions responsible for laying the foundation for the achievement of the policy, language curriculum still leaves much to be desired. This research investigates teacher preparation as a crucial link in implementing the official bilingualism policy in Anglophone primary schools. It focuses on language curriculum as the basis for teacher training to establish its adequacy in the achievement of official bilingualism. The paper examines official bilingualism in the professional preparation of teachers in some public, confessional and lay private teacher training institutions in the Buea municipality of the South West Region of Cameroon. The findings reveal that, though most teachers have a good working experience of over 10 years, their deficient bilingualism levels do not reflect effectiveness in bilingualism teaching. They cannot plan, implement and evaluate French and bilingualism training lessons. They lack exposure in terms of content knowledge and pedagogic skills and have limited time allocation for bilingual training. Finally, teachers do not master the French language subject matter they are expected to teach.</p> Blasius A. Chiatoh Emmanuel T.

The study was conducted in two villages: Kalisampurno Village and Kludan Village, located in the Tanggulangin Subdistrict, Sidoarjo Regency, East Java. As the rural community needs in this digital era have changed, village governments have to change their management systems as the form of updated strategy. However, such a brand-new strategy often fails due to the lack of institutional capacity and the abilities of village government officials. In addition, the community's knowledge of technology influences their ability to adapt to technological advancements. This study employs a qualitative approach and with phenomenological methodology. Research data were collected through observations, interviews, and Focus Group Discussions. The study has indicated that the governance of Kalisampurno and Kludan villages showed poor result of change management strategy implementation as their officials display ineffective functions, unefficient organization, and poor village policy management.</p> Hasan Ubaidillah Pribadiyono Pribadiyono Ikhsan Budi Riharjo Copyright (c) 2024 Modern Journal of Social Sciences and Humanities 2024-01-30 2024-01-30 23 1 56 61
