Thanks for your interest. Indonesia has more than 250,000 schools, and the Ministry of National Education has introduced school based management concepts to all schools through the national school operations grants program, which is also supported by the World Bank. That said, monitoring systems to measure the spread of SBM practices are still being developed, so we can't compare student performance in the way you suggest.

We will be bringing out more information and analysis on SBM in Indonesia over the coming months, including this new working paper: Please keep an eye on our Indonesia education webpage:
