The chief of The Education, Youth and Sports Service for the province of Bali, A.A. Ngurah Sujaya, reports that 49,385 Bali residents between the productive ages of 15-44 years are illiterate.

Among Bali residents older than 44 years the illiteracy total increases dramatically to 284,281.

The government, in an effort to reduce illiteracy, has introduced a number of programs including mandatory education for 9 years.

Sujaya told DenPost that Bali is facing the threat of a boom in the number of illiterate young people due to the large number of grade school dropouts.

In 2004 the total number of illiterate Indonesians nation-wide stood at 15.4 million. The government is targeting for that number to be reduced by 50% by 2015.

Suyasa’s comments were made in connection with the 47th anniversary Indonesian Literacy Day (HAI) on Thursday, November 8, 2012.
