Where we are?


Efforts to achieving universal primary education have been in step with the MDGs, as is demonstrated by the implementation of basic 9-year education in Indonesia. In 2011, the Net Enrolment Ratio (NER) in primary education reached 95.55 percent; Proportion of pupils starting grade 1 who complete primary school was 96.58 percent; and the literacy rate for the population aged 15-24 years reached 98.75 percent for women and 98.80 percent for men.
