Gender Equality in Education in Indonesia: Policy Brief

Good practice and innovation in mainstreaming gender equality in education exist in Indonesia and other countries. However, in Indonesia, opportunities are missed because such practice remains largely localized and relatively small scale.

This policy brief suggests that a key challenge is to evaluate and disseminate good practice, and to prioritise resources and budgets to scale up initiatives that will make a difference. The Education Sector Analytical and Capacity Development Partnership (ACDP) study found that while there is general support for gender issues at central level, there is currently a lack of clear strategic direction for gender mainstreaming in education, and limited specialist technical capacity. Renewed efforts are required to mainstream gender awareness in key education policy and planning institutions - and momentum must be maintained by constantly regenerating skills and knowledge.
