      Secular-religious debates on the Indonesian National Education System: colonial legacy and a
      search for national identity in education

      Abstract:


      This paper attempts to trace and discuss the historical roots of secular-religious debates and
      tensions and their relationship to the formation of the Indonesian National Education System within
      the context of the history of Dutch colonization and nationalist struggles for national identity. It
      focuses on what are believed to be two 'significant events' in the history of the Indonesian
      National Education System. The first is three and half centuries of Dutch occupation of Indonesia
      prior to 1945 and the second the establishment of the Indonesian National Education System. Also,
      the tension between those desiring a secular versus religious (Islamic) education system is
      discussed in detail.
