Belajar dari rumah yang tidak efektif selama pandemi berpotensi hapus bonus demografi

Pada 2030-2040, Indonesia diprediksi akan mengalami puncak masa bonus demografi, yakni jumlah penduduk usia produktif (berusia 15-64 tahun) lebih besar dibandingkan penduduk usia tidak produktif (anak dan lansia).

Pada 2035, penduduk usia produktif akan mencapai 64% dari seluruh penduduk yang jumlahnya 297 juta jiwa.

Namun, pelaksanaan belajar dari rumah di Indonesia yang tidak efektif selama pandemi COVID-19 dapat menghapus peluang untuk mendapatkan manfaat dari bonus itu. Murid sekolah yang saat ini menjalani pembelajaran dari rumah pada sekitar tahun 2035 nanti akan memasuki dunia kerja.
