One of the several poverty reduction programmes launched by the GOI is the Cash Transfer for Poor Students (BSM). The program includes financial assistance given to students from poor families to continue their education. This provides students the opportunity to obtain higher levels of education. Moreover, this program also supports the government’s commitment to increase education participation rates in poor and remote regencies/cities and among marginal groups.

Related to this, CPPS-GMU with full support from TNP2K Indonesia conducted the Child Education Quality Survey (SKPA 2013). The survey served as a strategy to carry on the supervisory and control functions of poverty reduction program and activities, particularly the Cash Transfer for Poor Students program (BSM). It is divided into three phases, namely baseline study, midline study, and endline study. Implementation started in March 2013. The survey was conducted in several provinces in Indonesia, such as West Java, East Java, NTT, NTB, Gorontalo, North Sumatra, South Kalimantan, South Sumatra, South Sulawesi.
