Indonesia education system faces emergency

Unqualified and underpaid teachers, deplorable buildings and lack of funding pose challenges for the next generation.

    Indonesia's education minister says the country’s school system faces "an emergency".

    Less than half of the teachers have proper qualifications and students score among the lowest in the world in reading, mathematics and science tests.
