It is unimaginable to overestimate the importance of teachers and their quality in influencing the effectiveness of the education process and driving student performance in school. In Indonesia, the quality of the teacher itself is ruled through competency demands set out in Law Number 14 Year 2005 and one of the four competencies to be mastered is pedagogical competency. This paper highlights the presence of teachers’ pedagogical competency in affecting the students’ English performance. Many studies have found that teachers’ pedagogical competency was lacking, negatively impacting students’ performance, including in English. Furthermore, the weakness of the teachers’ pedagogical competency and the lowness of students’ English performance should be solved not only by teachers, students, or the school, but the government’s supervision and solutions are also needed.
