Abstract

This paper examines a bit of education policy in the reform era by highlighting the periodization of the reigns of 5 presidents, starting from the transition period in the era of Prof. Dr. ing. H.B.J. Habibie [1998-1999] to President Joko Widodo, and their implications for Islamic education in Indonesia. The conclusion of this paper is that in the reform era, Islamic education in Indonesia has progressed step by step, starting with the policy of issuing regional government laws, the implication of this law is educational autonomy. Although for madrasah it has not been maximized because some of the authority is still the authority of the center. The existence of madrasas is recognized as significant and considered equal in position to other public schools with the enactment of the National Education System Law No 20 of 2003 madrasas are one unit in the national education system. The passing of the Teacher and Lecturer Law Number 14 of 2003 became a momentum to improve the quality of education, through increasing the qualifications, competence and professionalization of teachers.
