Education, Culture, Research, and Technology Minister Nadiem Anwar Makarim will continue policies to improve the quality of Indonesian human resources, especially in education, by upscaling programs, including School as Driving Force and the Freedom Campus.
“In future, it is impossible for us to provide something regressive. We certainly always encourage progress. All things, such as the development and distribution of free technology platforms for schools, we will definitely improve and always improve,” the minister stated while speaking on a national television program, as seen from here on Friday.
Makarim noted that in future, he will create various other programs, such as for coaxing more practitioners to become lecturers at campuses, which will start next year.
He also emphasized that the ministry will continue to expand the scale of the School as Driving Force Program, increase the number of students involved in the Merdeka Campus, and increase the supply of certified internship opportunities and independent study projects and the scope of Motivating Teachers.
“Hence, next year, there will be several extended programs that would be just starting, (but since) we found the formula, now we (can and) will expand it next year. Scaling up is one of the priorities for next year,” the minister remarked.
He expected that this measure would better Indonesia’s future, as it can contribute to the biggest and most rampant national innovation in terms of human resource system.
“My big hope is that in the next 10 years, people will see this era as an era where we do various things that will certainly cause some degree of discomfort for those who have to change,” he added.
