Education Quality across Indonesia's Districts: Estimations from a Policy Experiment

Making Public Schools Less Selective: Implications for Equity and Learning in Indonesia

The RISE Programme applies systems thinking to education. We seek to understand why learning outcomes in a particular school, district, or country are poor, and why the (system) conditions causing these low learning levels exist. This understanding can then inform attempts to realign the relationships in the education system to be coherent for learning, meaning that every component works together with the goal of improving learning for all.
