Abstract

This study aims to explore how far the role of local leaders in improving education in the archipelago and remote areas in Indonesia. This research is also intended to find out the supporting and inhibiting factors to improve the education of fishermen community. This research uses qualitative explanative approach, with data collection through in-depth interviews with local leaders, students, alumni, parents and education managers, and experts in the field of education. Besides the researchers also make direct observations of the object of research, and collect relevant data from institutions related to the field of education. From the research conducted, it was found that local leaders had an important role in improving community education in the archipelago and remote areas. It is known from the rapid growth of educational institutions at various levels in several islands, which is the result of education conducted by local leaders. As for the factors that support the increase is the awareness of the graduates and fishermen community in general to increase their capacity, so their economic life will also increase. While the inhibiting factor is an archipelagic region far from the mainland, so that teachers and educators who are expected to teach in the archipelago are still not met properly. There needs to be a stronger incentive from the government towards teachers and teachers who have specialized in scholarship to be able to work in the archipelago. The government can work together with universities that have attention to education in the archipelago to send alumni teaching in the archipelago. Furthermore, the teachers work with local figures in the archipelago, in carrying out teaching and learning tasks.
