Abstract

Education funding in Indonesia for primary education is poured into the School Operational Assistance program (SOA), especially in public schools. Since the beginning of the distribution of these funds until now has improved the financing components that can be spent through SOA funds. This paper aims to present the demographic part of the funding for education funds through the SOA program to support learning in the era of the industrial revolution. The object of research is 382 public elementary schools in Medan. Data analysis used descriptive statistics combined with a qualitative narrative of the funding component of the SOA funds allocated by the School SOA Team for school operational activities based on the Minister of Education and Culture Regulations in force at that time. The top three dominant financing components were spend, namely; 1) library development; 2) payment of honorariums; and 3) student learning and extracurricular activities, respectively. Once the amount of funding allocated for library development should be highlighted more seriously by the School SOA Team, teachers, and school committees. Further review of library development is needed based on manual or automation. Proper distribution of SOA funds is more dominant in digital learning so that teachers and students are ready to face technological acceleration.
