Implementing School-Based Management in Indonesia. RTI Research Report Series. Occasional Paper

Indonesia, the world's fourth most populous nation, has been decentralizing its education sector for the past decade. In this context, school-based management is essential for improving the quality of education. A mixed-method, multisite assessment of a project that aimed to improve the management and governance of basic education in Indonesia documented positive impact on school-based management in both public and private schools, including "madrasah" (Islamic schools). The following factors were associated with this impact: (1) the program was explicitly based on government policy; (2) technical assistance was provided rather than funding, and the program was manageable and affordable for local partners; (3) the project strengthened local systems and institutions, building commitment at both provincial and district levels; (4) the program was school based and involved members of the entire school community: principals, teachers, staff, parents, and community members; and (5) training was provided on-site in school clusters, was ongoing, and included mentoring in schools to support implementation (one-off training events rarely result in successful reform).
