Latihan UN Bahasa Inggris dan Pembahasan

The problem of over population in Indonesia is made worse by the fact that fifty percent
of all Indonesians are below the age of eighteen years. Most of them are dependents. They do
not earn money to support themselves and are in need of many facilities like food, medical care,
clothing, education, and employment opportunities. Although a large number of them are forced
to drop out of school to earn a living, the government. still has to spent a very large part of its
revenue on education. Then comes the problem of creating enough jobs for every new
generation of school leavers or college graduates.
                  Although the problem of overcrowded cities is difficult to solve, there is a solution to the
problem of people living in overcrowded areas of the countryside. The solution is internal
migration. This means moving poor people from the countryside to different but underdeveloped
parts of Indonesia, where they may work to build a new life themselves. In Indonesia, there are
large and active resettlement programmes of his sort which have given a new life to thousands
of people.
