A student at Al-Bayan Islamic School, Tangerang City, Banten, doing the work of the teacher while studying at home (home learning), Tuesday (17/3/2020). School students in the Jabodetabek area and several other provinces in Indonesia must study at home following the government\'s policy to temporarily close schools in an effort to prevent the transmission of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Whenever we read reports from world institutions about Indonesia, we generally find advancements and positive developments alongside shortcomings and setbacks.

The same is true in a report on educational development in Indonesia published by the World Bank, which appeared in Kompas (19/11/2020). On the positive side, we have paid sufficient attention to education, as shown by the about 200 percent increase in educational funds since 2002. Over the same period, the number of students has grown by over 10 million at basic and intermediate levels of education. Gender equality has also shown some progress, with male and female students in almost equal proportion.
