Keyword(s): Non-formal education, orthodoxy.

Abstract: There is a global orthodoxy viewing education as a fundamental human right. However, data show that there remain millions of out of school and illiterate population worldwide. Even when enrolled at school, millions of children are not learning. This signifies that schools cannot be the only “vehicle” to provide quality education for all. It is obvious for at least two reasons: first, education is a lifelong learning process that does not equate with schooling; and second, there are other categories of education from where people could learn throughout life. Non-formal education is a learning pathway that could be an alternative for people at all background and ages to gain access to education. Although conceptually and terminologically non-formal education is contested, literature show that it has been part of all cultures throughout human history, and its practices work and exist until today. Literature from the last four decades suggest that the significance of non-formal education lies on the heart that it can function as a complement, supplement and replacement/alternative to formal education. By employing the framework of Bell and Stevenson (2013) in Indonesian context, it is suggested that non-formal education is a worth-considering educational policy to boost the country’s educational improvement.
