IDEOLOGICAL FEATURES ATTACHED IN RESTRUCTURING INDONESIAN SCHOOL THROUGH SCHOOL-BASED MANAGEMENT CONCEPT

For about a decade, school-based management (SBM) has been implemented in Indonesia as an implication of reform in 1998. Although this concept has been implemented in Western countries for more than 25 years ago and many international scholars criticize its bad effects, this concept is now becoming an idol that most of Indonesian people and scholars appreciate it well. Moreover, the government of Indonesia (GOI) provides much of fund from the international loan to support this project. This is the most influential reform in schooling system in Indonesia. In this reform, however, although it is not controlled by ideology, it is connected to ideology.

The aim of this study is to know the ideological features attached in restructuring Indonesian school through school-based management concept. This will also investigate the values inside the implementation of SBM whether it is in in line with the Indonesian's ideology – Pancasila with the five basic principles– or not.

This is a qualitative research since the author wants to understand, explore and finally describe the ideological features attached in restructuring Indonesian school through school-based management concept. The instrument of this study is documentation in which the author analyzes some various documents from the decrees, acts as well as guidance made by GOI related to the implementation of SBM in Indonesia.

The study shows that neoliberalism and managerialism features are attached in the implementation of SBM in Indonesia. The feature of neoliberalism is a free market. While the features of managerialism are centralization, the authority placed on the manager/headmaster, and establishment of competitive environment. Those two ideologies, especially neoliberalism is resistant with Indonesian people that many of them do not want it, but when it is presented in SBM, many Indonesian people appreciate it. Besides, those features can create the injustice in society in which it is not in line with the fifth point of Pancasila that is ‘social justice for the whole of the Indonesian people”.
