Abstract

This research is aiming at arranging a policy of affordable and high quality education in Tulungagung Regency in 2015-2018. This research was conducted in primary and secondary levels of education in six districts in Tulungagung Regency. The sources of data were secondary data, survey, in-depth interview, and Focus Group Discussion (henceforth: FGD). The research findings showed that the resources in Primary and Secondary Education Office of Tulungagung Regency have not met the Minimum Standard of Service yet. There was also a gap between the real condition and the expected condition. The strategy to implement the policy of affordable and high quality education in Tulungagung Regency in 2015-2018 was needed by increasing the school operational fund, improving the productivity of human resources. Thus, the service quality and relevancy in the primary and secondary education is getting better, improving the affordability of the schools, improving the management and teacher placement based on their capacity.
