Suryani, A., Tirtowalujo, I. & Masalam, H. (Eds). (2020). Preparing Indonesian Youth: A Review of Educational Research. Leiden, The Netherlands: Brill.

Preparing Indonesian Youth: A Review of Educational Research offers insights into the challenges and prospects in preparing Indonesian youth for 21st century living. The chapters feature empirically-based case studies focusing on three aspects of education in Indonesia: teachers and teaching; school practices, programs, and innovations; and the social contexts of youth and education. 

The case studies also represent different vantage points contributing to an enriched understanding of how larger social phenomenon—for example, education decentralisation in Indonesia, (rural-urban and transnational) migration, international assessments, and the global feminist and women’s movement—impact and interact with enacted visions of preparing all youth educationally for work, as well as for meaningful participation in their respective communities and the Indonesian society at large.
