(Universitas Islam Internasional Indonesia Press, 2024-06-28) Wiwin Indiana; Mariam Ulpah
Behind the success of the government programs, various educational phenomena in Depok City must still be resolved, one of which is education for marginalized communities. “Marginalized people” is a more accurate description of the urban poor. Consequently, the paramount task for the government is to harness the potential of these underprivileged individuals through the promotion of inclusive education. The Masjid Terminal School (Master School) is one of the schools in Depok that provides inclusive education. A qualitative method with a case study approach is used in this study. Semi-structured interviews, classroom observations and post-observation interviews were conducted to collect the data. The findings of this study revealed that the challenges faced by students at Master School differ significantly from those encountered at other schools. Given that Master School is tailored for underprivileged students, economic hardships emerge as one of their most formidable obstacles. Nevertheless, students at Master School are afforded opportunities to enhance their capacities and skills while enrolled, as the school not only provides tuition-free lessons but also offers a variety of extracurricular activities open to all students. Furthermore, teachers and staff at Master School actively support students with a strong desire to pursue higher education, with many students having secured scholarships to study abroad.

Urbanization is one factor influencing poverty in Indonesia’s major cities. Urbanization in Indonesia is characterized by migration of residents from villages to cities to improve their standard of living and try their luck in the city. However, many urbanized people who move from villages to cities need more education and specific skills. As a result, they need help to find easier and more decent jobs, even though cities provide more jobs. This condition causes many urbanized people to end up as underprivileged, such as street people busking at red lights and on the streets. This research aimed to examine the challenges and opportunities faced by underprivileged urbanized people in accessing education. The research used a qualitative case study approach. The participants in this study are urbanized people who move from villages to cities but end up being underprivileged in the cities they attend. Furthermore, the researchers used an interactive data analysis by Morse (1994), comprehending, synthesizing, theorizing and recontextualizing. The findings of this study are expected to provide a true picture of urbanized people and underprivileged people’s education. The results showed that the underprivileged urbanized people in Liu village, Depok face several challenges in fulfilling their education, such as difficulty enrolling their children in public school and paying school fees. Besides their opportunities to access education, they are already aware of government assistance, such as KIP and KDS programs, which allow them to pay their children’s tuition fees with LKS money.

(Universitas Airlangga, 2024-06-30) Milhatun Nisa'; Muhammad Ismail Sunni
Introduction: The rise of the internet has revolutionized the way businesses operate and people interact globally, without exception, including Islamic finance. This paper aims to investigate whether or not the level of internet users, GDP per capita, exchange rate, labor force, and poverty are the determinants of the increase of the Islamic Finance Index (IFI) in Indonesia and Malaysia. Methods: This research is a quantitative study that employs a balance panel regression and causality tests for the period 2013 to 2020 quarterly. Results: It is empirically found that there was a relationship between internet users and other macroeconomic variables on IFI in the long term, which was significant. However, only the labor force and exchange rate have significantly and negatively impacted IFI. While the remaining variables were expected to be positive, poverty uniquely did not contribute to the performance of Islamic finance. Furthermore, the empirical findings portrayed that all determinants influenced the endogenous variable, but not the contrary. Conclusion and suggestion: By analyzing and delving into the link between internet users, macroeocnomic factors and Islamic finance, this study fills the literature gap which will be a guide for both policymakers and academies to grasp what dominant variables to prioritize for the acceleration of Islamic finance rectification in both Indonesia and Malaysia, aligned with the increasing rate and impact of internet users.
