To a large degree I agree with David Jardine when he says in his article, Indonesia: Obstacles to university reform: "Structural reforms may take place piecemeal but corruption remains a problem for the higher education system. For this reason among others, Indonesia will continue to lag behind its assertive neighbours, Singapore and Malaysia." However, I believe that initial and very significant reform can be achieved as long as this reform is initiated by universities that are looking for, and ready to embrace change. These universities may well be those that are finding expansion under the current circumstances difficult.
