Pursue Belief: Education Investment Must Empower Students’ Potential
Jakarta – Education investment should focus more on building a flexible learning system that empowers students’ potential, Tuesday (31/1/2023).
It’s crucial when technology is evolving faster than education services. This is a concern for Commission X of the House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia, because education investment is currently considered to be more spent on financing physical development.

Based on the information he received, 70 percent of undergraduate graduates were unable to adapt to the industrial world.
“We asked the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) and HIPMI (Indonesian Young Entrepreneurs Association) as managers of the business world, they said that almost 70 percent of the undergraduate graduates were unable to accept the tasks given by the business world and the industrial world,” said Dede, his familiar greeting.
“Don’t let AI (Artificial Intelligence) take over our education world,” Dede further said.
On the other hand, the Democratic Party Faction Politician wants the education world in Indonesia to be able to catch up on increasingly dynamic technological changes.
Therefore, in the future, the existence of products in Indonesian universities can adjust to the needs of the business world as well as the industrial world.
“Don’t let us open a production or anything, the endings are students only get a bachelor’s degree but can’t work.
So, actually the biggest investment is not spent on the physicality of the building except for vocations because it requires a practical laboratory,” concluded the legislator of West Java Election Region II.
