Since Covid-19 pandemic started over a year ago, the gap in education has become wider in many developing countries such as Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and so on.
Two main reasons are internet access and ability to pay as explained in the picture below:
In this article, I will focus only on Indonesia as I am more familiar with it. As the leader of a country with 17,000 islands, the President of Indonesia knows about this very well better than anyone else. He told me clearly, Indonesia is not only Jakarta (metropolitan city) but also non-metropolitan areas which are so much bigger and so much larger in Indonesia. There are over 35 millions students living in those areas that need digital education (grade 1 to 12) but they do not have internet yet (or slow and very expensive).
