“It`s time for the Papuan people to develop a new paradigm in making education as the most important sector in building a better generation,” said Mr. Suebu.
According to him, qualified education was very important for the Papuan youth to be not left behind in global competition.
“Papuans should start learning hard and leave bad habits to pursue good education for all,” he said.
He said good human resource should be prepared to develop Papua in technology.
Moreover, he added, the education quality in Papua, the most eastern Province of Indonesia, was still relatively low and therefore learning awareness needed to be increased as early as possible.
“This becomes the homework for all, including the government, parents and the youth,” he added.
He expected all Papuans not to stop learning.
Thus, he added, when they met their brothers from outside Papua, they would have a similar knowledge, not of second rate.
“I expect the students to study hard, and never think that education is only for obtaining a certificate,” he said.
