One of the problems that always hit education in various parts of the world is the budget. The limited education budget will affect the quality of education services provided to the community. Therefore, increasing public awareness to participate in education funding is important. Not only for better quality but also to make education a shared responsibility. Good & Nelson in their article entitled With a Little Help from Our Friends: Private Fundraising and Public Schools in Philadelphia, highlights the practice of educational funding that is mostly carried out by non-profit organizations based on the school environment with various pros and cons and explains what strategies can be taken to support availability of an education budget that involves community participation (Good & Nelson, 2021). This paper will also discuss its practical application in the context of education in Indonesia with various intrigues and conflicts related to public education funding.
