Education in Indonesia
Rising to the Challenge
Having made impressive progress in widening access to basic education, Indonesia must
now consolidate these gains and develop an education system that will support better
the needs of a rapidly emerging economy in its transition towards high-income status.
This report provides guidance on how Indonesia can rise to this challenge. It highlights
three main policy directions which, pursued together, would help Indonesia advance
on the path towards stronger growth and more inclusive and sustainable development.
The first priority is to raise the quality of education and ensure that all learners
acquire the skills they need to succeed in life and work. The second goal is to widen
participation, requiring a concerted effort to improve access for disadvantaged groups
and expand provision beyond the basic level. The final challenge is to increase efficiency,
with a more data-driven approach to resource allocation, better tailoring of provision
to local needs, and stronger performance management.
