    Abstract: industri 4.0 menuntut kita untuk lebih terampil dan kreatif dalam bekerja agar bisa bersaing dengan negara lain atau dengan kata lain bersaing secara global. tentu hal ini harus dipersiapkan dimulai dari merestrukturisasi sistem pendidikan yang ada di indonesia saat ini. mengingat bahwa pendidikan sangat penting dalam membangun sebuah SDM yang memiliki kompetensi yang baik dan diharapkan dapat menjawab semua masalah-masalah yang akan datang kedepannya dapat terjawab dengan banyak nya inovasi-inovasi yang dikembangkan mulai saat ini, ataupun pemikiran-pemikiran yang cukup kritis untuk menjawab hal tersebut.

    Abstract: This study gathered data on the scale and scope of policy interventions in the housing system during the COVID-19 pandemic in Australia—a critical first step for on-going assessment of the outcomes and impacts of the broad suite of initiatives deployed by governments in response to the pandemic. It will help build a preliminary evidence base to assess the whole-of-government response and to prepare policy makers for future crises with similar system-wide implications

    Abstract: We examine the role of school closures in contributing to the negative labor market impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. We collect detailed daily information on school closures at the school-district level, which we merge to individual level data on various employment and socio- demographic characteristics from the monthly Current Population Survey from January 2019 through May 2020. Using a difference-in-differences estimation approach, we gauge how the intensity of school closures affects the labor supply of mothers and fathers of young school-age children. We find evidence of non-negligible labor supply reductions, particularly among mothers. These impacts prove robust to endogeneity checks and persist after accounting for other social-distancing measures in place.
