This article reviews the essence of education as a systematic process to improve the dignity of human beings holistically that enables the aspect of learner’ humanity can develop optimally. The formal education should be strategic for the effort to develop learner’ potential. As it turns out in practice, it has certain weaknesses, particularly in view of the accountability and legitimacy aspects of its establishment. The results show that education represents a constitutional right as guaranteed by the constitution. However, there must be a serious effort to improve the national education system as a product of legal policy and its implementation in basic education. In such efforts, it will obtain the quality of human resources of the children who are able to compete globally with the advanced nations in this world. In essence, the implementation strategy of education is a conscious and planned effort to create conducive learning system so that learners can actively develop their potential to have spiritual strength, self-control, personality, intelligence, noble character, and skills needed for themselves, nation and state. The implementation of national education should be designed on the basis of paradigm, theories or concepts of learning that can provide perspectives on how to design effective learning theories. The national education system should be able to ensure equality in educational opportunities, quality improvement and relevance and efficiency in education management.
