some picture of the week in KOMPAS (26 februari 2012) showed us, what kind of chalenge and threat that student should overcome to go to study. The place located in Dukuh Handap, Banten. It showed five indonesian students in uniform and wore same shoes - sandal jepit - went to their school together with the leader of an old man ahead.
in an other picture shows how beautifull the scenery. They keep walking, trace the river and climb steep road for indonesian aim in Wajib belajar (must study). And the weeds dance through while the student passed it in C.Anto saptowalyono picture (journalist) as salute for them.
At school they should be patient in studying at class which has no longer national standar.
This is Indonesian Zone, not indiana Jones from C.Anto Picture in Kompas. This ever be mind topic in foreign newspaper. Now, it had local attention. In that article display more photo which is describe how indonesian student have to study or go to school. ironic. that area is not far from capital city. They just need bridge. The nearest school is across the river. It needs miles away if turn around, so they choose across the river. although in rainy season they would risky themslef by sank. or perforce absent that day. no matter what. as there is still education fund, why government orginaze not divide to whom need it? government always talk and check but takes very long time to act. Sometimes it needs a victim then government react to solve that.
Who can imagine ? what will surface if we go further in devious location. By complete information and people attention from media, it change. it happen. Make help for them from elementary to university, from city to devious location, no difference. And we have brighter future. Education is a hand to the future what we want as globalization era
