Teacher Recruitment and Deployment

RISE Booklet: Contribution to Improving the Quality of Learning

RISE Indonesia has shown that high-quality evidence, participatory engagements with policymakers, and a focus on real-world problem solving can bring about reform. The challenge now is to match the scale of the problem to how we can apply these methods to a still developing country with three time zones and speaks 762 languages. We’re on the right track, but we’re not there yet.  

The system is massive, with 3 million teachers and 69 million students at primary and secondary levels. It is highly decentralized, meaning that 500+ local governments can autonomously set their own education policies. And without specific recovery policies, the significant learning loss due to prolonged school closures will likely worsen the learning crisis. We intend to continue working with policymakers on these issues, together with any global partners who share the same concerns.

Strategies to Improve Indonesia’s Teacher Recruitment Process

Tackling Indonesia’s teacher quality is a tangible way to lift the country’s learning profile. Policies to improve teacher performance range from increasing teachers’ wages, instituting certification programmes to better teacher readiness, deepening community participation in school management, and expanding pre-service teacher training as well as bridging experienced teachers with inexperienced teachers for ongoing development.
