The Government of Indonesia (GoI) recognizes the importance of education in reducing poverty and inequality and allocates a substantial amount of resources to increase education access and quality. Since 2009, 20 percent of national and district government budgets have been allocated to education. Money spent on teachers’ welfare has increased significantly. However, improved teacher welfare has not led to better learning outcomes, and teacher absenteeism in rural and remote areas remains high.
