Education Policy Research in Aceh Province (EPRA): Evaluating the Use of the Special Autonomy and Oil and Gas Funds for Education

08 Oct 2018 - 08 Oct 2018

The study attempted to determine the efficiencies in the system by looking at what has been achieved with the funds already allocated and whether the funds have made a difference to education quality. The study identified the national education funding structure and how it translates into education financing at the provincial level. For Aceh there is the added complication of its Special Autonomy and additional sharing in the oil and gas production proceeds of the Government.  The study reviewed National Accounts and funding mechanisms to the sub-national levels and then reviewed Provincial Accounts and records to identify both the funding and expenditure profiles of the Education Sector.
