Improving Parental Involvement in Children’s Education


This study is part of RISE Programme in Indonesia, a large scale, multi-country research program that seeks to understand how school systems in the developing world can overcome the learning crisis and deliver better learning for all. The study is one of the components in the Reform Area B that seeks to understand the impact of district education policies.

Following our diagnostic study, along with the Kebumen Education Agency, we designed an intervention program called Program for Improving Parental Involvement in Children’s Education, lasting from February 2020 to April 2021. The program aims to provide parents with the necessary tools to assist their children’s education and inform them of their children’s learning level by providing two types of information: ways parents can be more involved in their children’s education and learning process.


To examine whether providing information to parents can improve students’ learning outcome.


We use a combination of quantitative (randomized control trial/RCT) and qualitative data.
