How Indonesia World Education Today

Dated May 2, 1889 is the day was born Raden Mas Soewardi Soerjaningrat better known by the name of Ki Hajar Dewantara. College Park Student pioneer who later became the National Education Mr birthday and set a National Education Day by the government in 1959.

Continuing the spirit of national education day itself, of course, many efforts have been made by the government in promoting education in this beloved Republic, one of the government’s efforts to raise the passing grade to improve the quality of education and eliminate school fees ranging from elementary to junior high. After all, however, still many who say not optimal and have not fully enjoyed by the people, actually had a chance to go there and available, stayed back to each individual – each want memanfaatkanya or not, because the potential is certainly there.

I believe every human being on this earth comes from the same basic as being born into the world. This means that there is no certainty that ensure that certain groups better (or worse) than other groups.

THEN, IF THERE ARE ASKING HOW THE WORLD OF EDUCATION INDONESIA NOW?

MY ANSWER:

There is no single perception or assumption that can assess the education in Indonesia in general. Generalization assumptions about education in Indonesia is something that has no scientific basis.

Why?

tutwurilogoData-data shows that education activities in Indonesia experienced a variety of striking growth between rural and urban areas. The difference is the speed of education grew strongly influenced by the level of population growth and economic growth rates in each – each region. Areas that are now grown into urban areas has increased the quality of education better and advanced than the territory – territory that until now is still a rural area.

The difference happens to be very far between, such as Jakarta and the island a thousand, or, for example, between Bandung and Leuwi Rosin (Cibeo, Baduy), or, especially, such as between Jakarta and parts of Papua. Therefore, in my opinion, no one ukurpun scale that can be used to generalize the education in Indonesia. Even if it was imposed it would happen “dishonesty” in view of Indonesia as a state entity, or maybe a kind of “selfishness” in the name of the theory.

So in my opinion, education in Indonesia is the world that has many advantages and many left behind. Top keunggulanya we must grateful, and the remaining ketertinggalanya should be felt and in sikapi as part we must think together as members of a major union, the Republic of Indonesia.

Indonesia education forward …

Come with us Cerdaskan ourselves and this nation …

APRIL Education and Training in Sustainable Forest Management

APRIL is one of palm oil companies in Indonesia that face deforestation accusation from Greenpeace, but the company answers the accusation with proofs of progress in sustainable forest management. The company has been among the most consistent among many palm oil giants in Indonesia that do continuous sustainable efforts in each stage of production, as well as restoring the damaged land and protecting existing forest areas that have high conservation value. The company also teaches the principle to local communities, spreading the knowledge and skill in sustainability around larger areas.

APRIL Education to Local Farmers in Sustainability
APRIL works together with independent oil palm farmers in its operation, and therefore, the farmers also get education and training in sustainability. For example, the company trains farmers how to open the land for plantation with methods that reduce the risk of forest fire as well as waste. Also, the farmers learn how to do farming with efficient waste management and even recycling efforts, which can improve productivity besides reducing waste.

Local farmers also get training and education in conservation, making sure that all oil palm farmers understand to apply and even have initiative in sustainable farming practices. As for local communities, APRIL also provides educational programs for locals to improve knowledge and bring ideas as well as initiatives to start sustainable small business or conservation-focused efforts in daily life, such as recycle and reuse in household activities. With these efforts, APRIL wants to make sure that the sustainability and conservation efforts are understood and spread by local communities.

Positive Results in Sustainability-Focused Programs
APRIL efforts in educating and training local communities and farmers have shown positive results. For example, the companys latest Stakeholder Advisory Committee reports showed that APRIL has managed to protect about 250,000 hectares of land with high conservation value. Also, the company has kept its commitment to plant about 150 millions of trees every year with the help of local communities. APRIL has also restored 40,000 hectares of damaged land and even acquired the right to restore lands in Kampar Peninsula and Padang Island.

APRIL has faced severe accusation from Greenpeace about deforestation, so the positive results in sustainability policies and programs are great answers from the company to the accusation. Also, the efforts of education and training for surrounding local communities make sure that the companys sustainable forest management efforts spread widely, improving positive results of conservation program in bigger areas with high conservation values.
