Sistem Bantuan Sosial Indonesia: Reformasi Berjalan Baik, Namun Masih Banyak Pekerjaan Lain

Ketika Bank Dunia melakukan kajian pertama terkait pengeluaran bantuan sosial di Indonesia di tahun 2012, diagnosisnya sudah jelas. Meskipun telah banyak sumber daya yang dihabiskan untuk  "kesejahteraan", sebagian besar dari upaya ini dilakukan melalui subsidi yang mahal (bahan bakar, listrik, beras) yang belum tentu bermanfaat untuk segmen masyarakat yang paling rentan. Subsidi umum mewakili 20 persen dari total anggaran nasional, namun program bantuan sosial yang ditargetkan untuk rumah tangga telah berjalan, meningkat dari 0,3 persen PDB menjadi 0,5 persen antara tahun 2004 dan 2010. Namun, dengan koefisien Gini yang meningkat sekitar 6 poin persentase pada periode 2005-2012, masih ada ketidakpuasan dalam pencapaian selama ini.  

Dengan adanya lebih dari 27 juta orang yang termasuk golongan miskin dan sebagai salah satu negara di kawasan Asia Timur dan Pasifik yang memiliki tingkat ketimpangan pendapatan tertinggi, maka perluasan cakupan dan penguatan sistem bantuan sosial adalah suatu keharusan. Untungnya, situasi di sektor bantuan sosial telah berubah secara dramatis.

Indonesia terus membuat langkah maju dalam memperluas akses pendidikan anak usia dini (PAUD) di seluruh nusantara yang sekarang mencapai sekitar  70.1% dari anak usia 3-6 tahun.  Meskipun ketersediaannya meningkat, mutu layanan masih rendah, terutama di daerah pedesaan dan daerah dengan pendapatan rendah.  Selain itu, masih ada ketergantungan pada guru yang kurang memenuhi kualifikasi yang dipersyaratkan, serta banyaknya  guru yang memperoleh pelatihan formal yang tidak memadai, atau bahkan sama sekali tidak mendapat pelatihan.

Indonesia continues to make strides in expanding access to early childhood education (ECE) across its vast archipelago, now reaching some 70.1% of 3-6 year olds. Yet despite this increased availability, quality of services continue to be poor, especially in rural and low-income areas. In particular, there continues to be reliance on under-qualified teachers, with many having received inadequate formal training, or none at all.

Năm 1977, khi tôi sinh ra, tôi chỉ nặng 2.5 kg như phần lớn trẻ em sinh ra trong thời kỳ kiệt quệ sau chiến tranh. Một người họ hàng của tôi chết ở tuổi 40 vì bệnh lao. Ông tôi, một lang y, rất buồn vì không thể dùng thảo dược để chữa trị căn bệnh thuộc tứ chứng nan y này, trong khi bác sĩ và thuốc chống lao lại không sẵn có ở tuyến xã. Bố mẹ tôi quyết định rời nông thôn ra thành phố để mong chúng tôi có thể tiếp cận hệ thống giáo dục và y tế tốt hơn.

Năm 1997, khi tôi hai mươi, cùng các bạn sinh viên y, tôi háo hức đi thực tập tại một trạm y tế xã ở vùng nông thôn. Các giáo sư nói rằng chúng tôi là thế hệ bác sĩ đầu tiên của Việt Nam được đào tạo để tăng cường cho y tế cơ sở. Thời kỳ này, Việt Nam có ít hơn 5 bác sĩ trên 1 vạn dân và hơn 75% số xã không có bác sĩ phục vụ. Nhưng thành thực mà nói thì không có nhiều sinh viên tốt nghiệp trường y lựa chọn công việc chăm sóc sức khỏe ban đầu, vì thế, những khó khăn về nhân lực cho y tế cơ sở còn tồn tại dai dẳng.

More than 200 participants – including government officials, policymakers and education experts from over 20 countries gathered in Jakarta, Indonesia, for the global conference Learning for All: Shared Principles for Equitable and Excellent Basic Education Systems.

The conference addressed themes related to improving learning outcomes for all students, including how to support effective teaching and early childhood development, balancing school autonomy and accountability, and how education systems can build the skills needed for the 21st century.   
 



For the host country, Indonesia, the forum provided a valuable chance to look more closely at issues facing its education system.

How do we achieve sustained growth? Through human capital, and East Asia and the Pacific proves it

In 1950, the average working-age person in the world had  almost three years of education, but in East Asia and Pacific (EAP), the  average person had less than half that amount. Around this time, countries in  the EAP  region put themselves on a path that focused on growth  driven by human capital. They made significant and steady investments in  schooling to close the educational attainment gap with the rest of the world. While  improving their school systems, they also put their human capital to work in  labor markets. As a result, economic growth has been stellar: for four decades  EAP has grown at roughly twice the pace of the global average. What is more, no  slowdown is in sight for rising prosperity.

High economic growth and strong human capital accumulation  are deeply intertwined. In a recent paper, Daron Acemoglu and David Autor explore  the way skills and labor markets interact: Human capital is the central  determinant of economic growth and is the main—and very likely the only—means  to achieve shared growth when technology is changing quickly and raising the  demand for skills. Skills promote productivity and growth, but if there are not  enough skilled workers, growth soon chokes off. If, by contrast, skills are abundant and  average skill-levels keep rising, technological change can drive productivity  and growth without stoking inequality.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s latest Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) results brought several pieces of alarming news for Thailand.
 
First, Thailand’s ranking slipped further (from 51st to 64th in reading; 50th to 55th in Mathematics; and 50th to 54th in Science).
 
Second, the education system produces a disturbingly small share of “high performers” – only 1.4 percent of Thai students demonstrated superior problem solving and analytical reasoning skills compared to 35 percent of students in Singapore, and 15 percent, on average, in the OECD.
 
Third, the share of functional illiterate students rose further: from 33 percent in 2012 to 50 percent in 2015.
