In Indonesia, as elsewhere in Asia, education will inevitably play a key role in the national development experience as the twenty-first century unfolds. Not much international attention is paid to how the education sector is faring in Indonesia, but that is not because nothing is happening. Indonesia′s literacy rate is above 90 %, according to UNESCO and the World Bank. Yet in this country of million people, writers complain that only few people read. They would like more people to have access to books. In fact, books are expensive and often unavailable. Indonesia islands, some far more developed than others.   After independence in , Indonesia constitutionally enshrined education as a right of all Indonesian citizens and sought to establish a more egalitarian and inclusive mass education system. Although public education is mostly secular and Indonesia is formally a secular state, Islamic education is highly prominent in Indonesia’s large. Education in Indonesia is compulsory under Government Regulations for children aged seven to fifteen. State (public) education is free at elementary school level. Education is also available in fee-paying private schools, which include religion-based schools, international schools and national-plus schools.

  Early childhood education in Indonesia is roughly divided into two categories: "formal education" (for children aged between 4 and 6) providing educational services at general kindergartens and Islamic kindergartens, and "non-formal education" providing educational services at playgroups (for children aged between 3 and 6) and child care.

Indonesia is already an exporter, not merely a consumer, of education, and it is thus a source of foreign income for the country. If this is an export that Indonesia wishes to increase, the question is whether these new considerations tip the balance of the debate in favour of further growth. The public education system in Indonesia is ranked below average compared to other OECD countries, although school standards naturally vary significantly from place to place. As an expat, you might choose to put your child into the state system, or look for a suitable private or international school. The Indonesian school system is immense and diverse. With over 50 million students and million teachers in more than , schools, it is the third largest education system in the Asia region and the fourth largest in the world (behind only China, India and the United States).Two ministries are responsible for managing the education system, with 84 percent of schools under the Ministry. Indonesia’s education system comprises four levels of education: primary (grades 1–6), junior secondary (grades 7–9), senior secondary (grades 10–12), and higher education. The first two levels constitute ‘basic education’ as that term is used in the Indonesian : Andrew Rosser.
