Reached the Oppressed, Reformed Structure, Valued Disability and Age in Covid-19 Pandemic in Indonesia (On Demand: Recorded)

Main Topic: Employment
Session Type: Paper

Abstract

The legacy of marginalization of people with disabilities and older adults has been going on since time immemorial, and they encounter marginalization in areas of their lives. The different characteristics they carry are disability and ageing, and likely up to threefold, including women, leprosy, or other chronic infectious diseases. They are not always statistically counted. They are most weak and needy. Higher education and education are important areas for educating young people to the future. However, the aged and the disabled have the same values as those who are either millennial or are not disabled. Higher education specifically requires primary and secondary education for all and provides social justice to the advancement of others and a comprehensive/comprehensive approach to disability and people with disabilities, both individual and socio-cultural. System change is important for the field of education because it affects future generations to create sustainable development for people with disabilities and the elderly. They have a level of intellectual capacity and character that is no less good than those with disabilities and young people. So the myth that people with disabilities and the elderly are often judged not to be necessary or minimal in accommodation in a pluralistic society because they are not capable of doing so is false. Pancasila, particularly in the second and fifth precepts, has accommodated all people, including the disabled and the elderly; humanity and social justice should be the spirit that builds up all members of society.

Keywords: disability, seniority, higher education, reform, sustainable growth
