I agree with the BHP. I think universities should not be subsidized. The money could be used to fully subsidize basic education, instead. As for competition issue, I think it's time to have freer exhanges of educators and professors as well as foreign-affiliated schools and universities. That would force a good competition to the locals. And/so in the longer run, university tuition will not rise (at least not significantly).

People have been protesting about the new education bill, UU Badan Hukum Pendidikan (BHP Law). They argue that the Law is a form of liberalization of education. As effects, tuition pay will increase and foreign investment will pour into Indonesian schools.
