MUHAMMADIYAH.ID, YOGYAKARTA – The development of a nation is directly proportional to its quality of education.
“Developing countries commonly have a developing education system, while developed countries own a well-developed education system,” said President of Muhammadiyah Haedar Nashir.
In the national webinar of Muhammadiyah professors on Saturday (24/7), Haedar hoped for breakthroughs in Muhammadiyah education without waiting for the government’s command.
Muhammadiyah education should be able to work together and build networks to answer various issues systematically and collectively.
“If we always wait for the government’s instruction, it will be hard to develop Muhammadiyah education because we’ll never know our strengths,” said Haedar.
“We should know our capability so that we can evolve Muhammadiyah education as education in developed countries such as the United States, the People’s Republic of China, and South Korea,” he said.
Muhammadiyah education should understand priorities and prioritize the most crucial aspect over other important aspects.
“We have to solve problems from the root so that there are no fragments of the issues. That’s what Muhammadiyah education should do so that people can think systematically, intelligently, and rationally,” said Haedar.
