Senza Arsendy

Senza Arsendy is a monitoring and evaluation officer for a donor funded education project in Indonesia. He previously worked as a primary school teacher in a remote area of the country.

Bahasa Indonesia is the mother tongue of less than 10 per cent of the Indonesian population. Senza Arsendy makes the case for greater use of local languages in the education of young students.
