When umar bakrie heard that he became more interested with this case and continue asking the question with the previous student, “ who is your Biology teacher child ?”, then All student in the class answered together,“ Pak kutikula”. After the conversation finished umar bakrie continued his job to teach math subject. Then when math time finish umar bakrie went to office to take a rest while he was waiting for the next math periode.
In the Office, There were only two teacher, which are umar bakrie and pak kutikula. Umar bakrie saw pak kutikula were counting money and there were so many LKS book under pak kutila table. Then umar bakrie remembered what he had talked with the student in the class. Umar bakrie tried to collect all his braveness when he would meet pak kutikula and ask about LKS issue. After he felt that he were ready, umar bakrie directly came to pak kutikula table and gave little greeting. When the condition was good enough, umar bakrie started to ask about the issue, “ pak kutikula, why do you push students to buy your LKS book?”, “ as you have known that our salary is so small, I need to find additional job to get more money” answer pak kutikula. Then umar bakrie said to pak kutikula that they could find other additional job which is not make the student suffer. When pak kutikula heard that he was look very angry, his face was getting red and the voice was louder. “ I didn’t make the student become suffer, I just give them a way to get better score in semester report” pak kutikula said, after that the office situation was so scary, there was no any voice, both of the teacher were silent. In the few minute later, umar bakrie try to open the conversation again and he said to pak kutika that it would be unfair for some student because they would get low score because they could not buy the LKS book. There wsa no any response from pak kutikula, he just silent and continued to count the money.
