Education Capitalization

Education carried out by the government and also private sector requires a real operating expenses height. Most all sectors are relating to education must be bought. Book, chalk, ruler, and teaching aid readily uses, for example, must be bought. Therefore, education requires cost.

Presumption like that not then is followed up with closing eyes and ear with interest places forward commercial factor than social. Education is not a commodity, but effort carries out system and certain mechanism that man can improve; repair their/his self, can make balmy themselves, and be solvent of interaction as man.

Education paradigm growing in Indonesia in this XXI century step by step has started leaves aspiration of the founders this republic nation-state that is that every citizen entitled to get the competent education. The republic founders were aware that performing the education is addressed to makes a man is humanitarianly and can make process towards the fullness of spirit hence would very ironic with the situation of education these days.

The Role of the Government and Private sector

Education is the responsibility of all suborders. By referring to this assumption, education organizer is not merely government but also entangles the side of private sector individually and also group. Thereby, the government hoped all members of the public responsible educate Indonesian.

Despitefully, because of limitation of cost, a government has given the opportunity of it’s bigger to the public to participate and develops business through education. This assumption is comprehended by the public by building opening school, courses, or skilled education type with facility that is better than school build and owned government. By giving supporting facilities for education that rather differs in, rather complete, and promises makes education managed the side of the private sector must be redeemed with cost that is not is cheap. So expensive education.

Indonesia has ever owned Perguruan Taman Siswa carrying out education for the public? People with motivation educate the public? People. Indonesia also has an education system of pesantren (Islamic models) which does not collect payment which in the form of money from its the student. Students in pesantren modeled this salaf (classical) not only studies public sciences (like biology, physics, mathematics, language, and art) they also studies Islam science for the sake of individual and public.

Without realized already happened friction of motivation of organizer and the management of the existing education. Education organizer of private sector tends to sell dream with equipment of facility which they perform. They disregard the condition of Indonesia public most doesn’t have purchasing power and energy? Power to bargain. Pupil old fellow will be given on to reality “expensive school” and “go to school for rich man children”.

Of course, must also be confessed that the school requires cost. However, collects the expense of height for education is a real wrong deed; more than anything else in Constitution 1945 has expressed that any citizen [is] entitled to get an education.

Capitalist: Having Under the Law

Shifts it purpose of education levying from formulated by the Republic of Indonesia founders is really peeping out suborder concern. If education only is carried out just for men who is having money, hence the biggest layer of the Indonesian public? People will not have formal education. Poor people and people, who don’t have purchasing power, will yield an apathetic generation. Thereby, will lose also one civilization that links a nation.

Education carried out with only menitikberatkan at present financial advantage will only make man is more individually and once in a while overrules that the man basically is created autonomous. Tendency and dependency to get it’s (the capital returns will make education product to enable all ways, machiavelistical.

Another side, the education system this time makes detached man from its (the area and sometimes abstracted from its (the community root. Properly is critical that education system this time makes educative participants not autonomous and sometimes forgets spirit to as social creature or according to opinion Aristotle’s that the man Zoon Politicon.

Semestinyalah had if education aimed at accomplishment of copartner ship standard (company) must be refused. Ideally, education must load agenda for “humanizes man” (humanization), non-dehumanization. By collecting the expense of height because law barium; by itself, education has been transferred to accomplishment of industrial requirement. More than anything else in Indonesia, a diploma is a respectable reference and the only equipment to get competent work.

By positioning, education carried out by the government and also law barium private sector must, public trapped at acute dilemma. On one public side requires education to increase its the humanity reality, medium on the other side no cost is small monster or endless nightmare.

A tussle between fears and desire of the public to send to school it’s the children exploited by certain party sides. This condition is a real condition profit if evaluated from the aspect of the business. Panic buyers are really conditioned hardly to the advantage of my pelaku-pela is business.

Opinion: Education is Sacral Factor

Indonesia Public till now still of the opinion that formal education is equipment the only to improve; repair life, to get work with good production, good salary, and to fulfill primary requirements, beside can boost up degree. This assumption by generations and always is looked after causing peeps out assumption and places formal education as thing which sacral.

Though all formal education, vocational school is not interesting means. As it’s (the impact, vocational schools teaching is skilled becoming not draws. Vocational school is a school for members of the marginal public. Vocational school teaching how facing and draws up life is assumed not elite and ancient. Despitefully, vocational school is not a place for rich man children but majored for children from poor families.

Social Lameness as poison impact goad to school which only is enjoyed by rich man children will peep out oppressed feeling and not balmy among poor people. Poor public of which cannot send to school it’s (the children will assume it as destiny which must be received and assumes it as penalization of God. The irony, of course. But this is reality when schools become is expensive and poor people [shall] no longer have a place in school.

Minister of National Education in Indonesia for the existing likely increasingly far from nationality vision. Even with the movement of schools autonomy increasingly clearly shows capitalization symptoms of education. Now education is managed by using the management of business that then yields cost in the sky. The expense of education is more and more expensive, even impressed has become a business commodity for the owner of capital (capitalist). By using pre-eminent school labels, favorite schools, peer schools etcetera expense of education increasingly strangles poor people. Our education increasingly grinds marginal clan. Where situation of our education justice if certifiable school of that is just for they having money only?

While as the man who sure is normal of public will choose the best life. However, because of its (the disability and its (the Ketchikan in looking at education problem, it is (the objectivity also disappears. Indonesia Public of course requires resuscitation that education is one essential part to improve; repair quality of it’s (the humanity. Of course, there is no guarantee that education will make people rich, influential, famous, and in command.

Cover? Conclusion

The debate of length still needs to have strived before the Indonesian public can look into formal education as not the only equipment to improve; repair its(the life. The public must realize formal education is not as of its (pitch.

Resuscitation needs to be trained to pebisnis. The school that is till now is viewed as the only equipment which able to be used to reach for and can realize its (the aspiration is not farmed to get an advantage. Therefore, not righteously school utilized as means to make a living. In school still and ought to slip between idealism, so that there is no reason again to expensive of education that is with quality, complete supporting facilities, and has various facilities.

Another alternative is publicizing intensively that nondiploma is required but the ethos and hard work, motivates to build their/his self, and desires to live in a better front must be inculcated early. The public must be awaked that becoming a public servant is not the price of death.
