Senior High Schools Urged to Support Papuan Students

Jayapura, Jubi – The Department of Education and Culture of Papua urged senior high schools in the province provide quotas for native youths.

If there is no specific quota for native Papuans, they will not be accepted at the top schools in Jayapura city, education chief Elias Wonda said.
“Therefore, we hoped that there is a quota for Papuan students, ” Wonda told journalists in Jayapura, Papua last week.

He then suggested that the school establish an admission policy of 60-40 or 80-20 as the Government of Papua did in the distribution of autonomy funds. “The allocation of 40 or 20 percent for native Papuans should be clear, otherwise Papua’s human development index will decrease drastically,” he said.

Therefore, it has sent a letter to the Ministry of Education to give an exceptions to Papua, because all areas in Papua have no adequate computer equipment.
“So, online registration can be done in nine regencies / city, while other regencies are not ready because of lacking computers and devices, “he said.

However, he hoped that the implementation of the new online system for admission can be run transparently.


Separately, Jayapura city resident Lorensius hoped the enrollment process would be more honest and monitored seriously. (Alexander Loen/ Tina)
