Problems Education in Indonesia

1.      Poverty
Indonesia face various problems in education. Poverty become a main problem that very difficult to be solved. Poverty can lead someone think to ignore education for it can not bring income instantly.

2.      Less enthusiasm for learning
Less enthusiasm to learn about new things also become a problem. It can reduce an opportunity to find new things which can be done if student are able to think critically. Besides, less enthusiasm make knowledge becomes less developed. So, students should be trained to be critical from now.

3.      Less physical facilities
Not all citizen have an opportunity to get education. People who live in remote area sometimes have a problem with the lack of facilities. They can not feel how easy to study using computer and connected with internet. Moreover, they study not in the classroom because they have no class.

            Not only government but also we must do hard work to solve this problem.
