Only a third of the children in Indonesia who enroll in primary school complete nine years of basic education, and the local government is challenged to manage the decentralized education system and effectively address education disparities.
USAID in Indonesia supports initiatives to expand access to basic education and improved quality and relevance of higher education. USAID's programming in the country embraces the U.S.-Indonesia Comprehensive Partnership and recognizes the leadership role Indonesia plays in its own development as well as development throughout the region.
USAID’s goals for education in Indonesia include supporting a decentralized effort for quality and relevant education; building the capacity of institutions to improve management and delivery of education services; and promoting an educated workforce that will advance international investment and stability.
