At the time when the new system of education reform started in our country, I want to talk about what I have learned from what I have read and learned about education. Why is education in a country very important. Especially the future life potential of young students who are studying depends on a good education system. In other words, the education of young students needs to be an education system that leads to the development of human resources that is independent of practical work and the future.
Most of the parents in our country know only one thing about their children and education. Education get good grades Therefore, it means that parents fulfill their parental responsibilities and their children fulfill their responsibilities. Why do you say this? If you have a degree, opportunities will be abundant, At that time, it was like an old cycle of parents’ thoughts about their children’s education, which I already wanted to be.
But today is the 21st century. The age of great competition Especially in the era of great competition in the workplace. In such a time, the old ideas about education will no longer work. Why should I say this? The recent international student assessment program and report says this. It is because, except for Singapore, many countries in Southeast Asia have the lowest level of education.
According to Professor Gopinathan, who is an advisor at the Singapore-based Education Think-Tank Foundation, governments in Southeast Asia are able to manage 100% of every student’s access to school.
He added that if you look at today’s economic trends, the service-based economy and the nature of work are rapidly changing. In other words, schools do not have a teaching style that adapts to these economic trends. He said that in schools, mathematics, language It is said that there is no such thing as expertise in teaching subjects such as science.
Another thing is that after the students graduate, they will enter the workplace. At that time, if their country has prepared for graduate students to enter the job market, I think they will say no. Why do you say this? If you look at the current education style in schools, it is more practical than practical. When such a student enters the workplace, he will definitely lack professional skills.
In other words, what this situation shows is that there is a need to bridge the gap between education and professional skills. Some universities in Southeast Asian countries, including their own, say that the current education situation is not yet at an encouraging level. Must be able to be critical, must be creative, according to Robert Walters Singapore, a skilled labor recruitment consultancy, you must be able to manage according to the situation you encounter.
Rich countries have the ability to bridge the gap between education and professional skills. Singapore’s Skill Future program is a program that helps improve the quality of professional skills, and the government has invested money in the program.
In Indonesia, President Joko Widodo said that after infrastructure development, human resource development is the second priority.
New recruiters have suggested that the country’s education should avoid the education system that dictates the future prospects of young people. Another thing is that language skills are important for bridging the workplace, and language skills can give you an advantage when competing in the global market. If you learn Japanese, you will have more opportunities to get a job in a big international company.
In fact, all of these are some of what I have read and memorized about education and put them down. In other words, I have reflected on everything I have thought about the movement of reforming the education system in our country. In other words, the direction of the 21st century education movement is not to have a big gap in professional skills. Even though there are vocational education schools in Nay Pyi Taw, State Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi called for increasing vocational education in Myanmar last year. I have urged in the forum about vocational training.
In other words, today’s time has come to break away from the old ways of thinking of the traditional education system. In fact, only paving the way for an educational path that can develop professional skills can lead to the development of labor resources that will benefit the country. “Towards Educational Mobility and Human Resource Development.”
