curriculum, it would not achieve the assigned educational goals. Teachers who
devote themselves in areas categorized as 3T (Outermost, Frontier, and
Underdeveloped) require concerns from the government. The study aims to explain

school teachers in the District of Northern Liukang Tupabbiring of Pangkep
