Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the lack of education for the people of Papua. In spite of their capability, the people of Papua lag behind in education as the region is not given equitable access to education programmes. There are already a lot of public schools, but there is also a lot of unemployment. There are a lot of people from the younger generations who can take over our positions in the world of government administration, but they are limited to certain positions only. The chapter discusses various issues such as marginalization of the natives, people holding positions at the wrong places in the government, inter-religious conflicts between different communities, lack of working relationship between the district-level Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat Daerah (DPRD, Regional Council of People's Representatives) and the provincial-level DPRD, the physical development which is not in the interests of the region, and the unfair implementation of development.
