2010 offers the best chance there will ever be for a major United States-Indonesia
bilateral initiative on education. Such an initiative, now, is imperative. Overall U.S.-
Indonesian educational cooperation needs serious re-invigoration.
The two presidents should articulate a far-reaching vision of the illustrative goals and
programmatic content for our educational cooperation over the next five to ten years,
assure that a concrete operational mechanism is put in place to achieve those goals.
