Internationally standardized schools: The case of Indonesia

Abstract:

This paper addresses the role of international curricula in the effort to increase the quality of education in Indonesia. In 2005 the government issued a policy whereby it mandates the provincial government, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, to establish education units that fulfill “international standards.” On the basis of this policy, the government would declare the best public schools as Sekolah Berbasis International, or Internationally Standardized Schools (SBI), upon their fulfillment of a set of requirements, including having retained the status of a Sekolah Standar Nasional (SSN) or Nationally Standardized School, and having integrated such internationally standardized education unit in their curriculum. This policy is issued in the hope that, upon adapting the national curriculum to curricula adopted from OECD countries and other developed countries perceived to offer high quality education, these schools would gain a competitive edge in the international arena. This paper will analyze the mechanisms of the implementation of this policy and challenge the assumptions embedded in the policy design. In light of the selection process of SBI candidate schools, particularly the criteria used to evaluate teachers and students of candidate schools, this paper examines the real impact of the integration of international curricula in increasing the quality of education of the SBIs, especially its student performance in high-stake examinations. It evaluates the possibility of the components of good teacher quality and high student achievements already existing within these candidate schools, independent to the implementation of any curricula, as factors determining high student performances.
