Siti Parhah

Abstract

Empirical evidence documented that school accessibility affecting the student’s performance. Under this condition, the government made a policy that in the enrolment system must be based on school zoning. This study identifies that distance to school as proxies of accessibility was important for guiding the school’s zoning policy. Using the Indonesia Family Life Survey (IFLS) 2000, this study describes the distance to school through descriptive analysis by using the data in the form of time spent to school. The analysis shows that the time to school for each student at each level varied with the maximum traveling time for 90 minutes. The finding emphasizes that school zoning policy is suitable to implement in Indonesia.
