Education is now one of the greatest facilities for determining one’s social environment. Education can determine or classify social class or social class in society. Related, education can lift a person’s social status to be higher. The higher a person’s education, the more it will benefit the community. This phenomenon will lead to the layering of society which will be a differentiator of one’s position in a vertically different position. Differentiating one’s position in the society is called social stratification. Then education becomes one of the factors that cause social start in the community. At present in Indonesia, social stratification is a differentiator of individuals into classes hierarchically. In a society with an open system, education becomes very important to advance in social class. The higher the level of education, the higher the expectation for social status. Thus, education in Indonesia is increasingly considered important. All people who are aware of education, will compete in the highest education possible.
