Accelerating the result of Indonesian education

Education is a long-term investment. The result is impossible to be acquired within a short time. As Confusius said, “If you want one year prosperity, grow seeds. If you want ten years prosperty, plant trees. If you want one hundred year prosperity, educate people”. What Confusius’s says has very strong implisit meaning. There is a hidden powerful effect of education. In the modern management education view, education is functiones to be technical-economic. The functionrefers to itcontribution to economy. Education guides the students to improve their knowledge and develop their skill, shape attitudes and good behaviour. All of this aspect is everything they need to lead their life and to compete in the competitive economy. So therefore, we could say that education is not only an instrument for the economic development, but also for economic growth.
