One of the best ways to increase the quality of a nation is to increase the quality of its education. Unfortunately, there are still many Indonesian school age children who can’t afford to go to school, especially in rural areas. Take Bojonegoro as an example. According to Bojonegoro Head of Education, there are 667 elementary school children, 1,103 junior high school children, and 2,221 senior high school children that never receive any form of education. The number of children who dropped out from school is even worse, consisting of 1,330 elementary school children, 3,760 junior high school children, and 3,042 senior high school children. A decrease in economic growth can be seen as one of the major factors for this phenomenon. In 2013, Bojonegoro economic growth was ranked 5th in East Java (BPS, 2015). However, one year later, they dropped to number 9 with 6.19% growth. To solve this problem, the Government of Bojonegoro decided to create a new program called “Gerakan Ayo Sekolah”. Children aged 7 to 18 years in Bojonegoro can go to school for free, because the government has allocated a fund to pay for their education. The purpose of this research is to see the implementation of Gerakan Ayo Sekolah and find out whether it gives a real positive impact to the development of education in Bojonegoro. This research uses qualitative descriptive as the method. The research was conducted in the Bojonegoro district of East Java province. Data collection techniques are performed by observation, interviews, and documentation. The data analysis techniques used is qualitative analysis. The results of this research show that Gerakan Ayo Sekolah Program in Bojonegoro has been executed in accordance with the regulation of the Government of Bojonegoro District number 8 year 2016 about the guidelines for the fund management of special allocation of education in the field of funds disbursement, and acceptance techniques. However, the program still hasn’t managed to reduce the number of school dropouts in Bojonegoro. Maybe, it’s due to the fact that this program has only been implemented for a year. We still have to wait and see how this program works in the coming years.
