The Concept of Education According to Ibn Khaldun and Its Implementation in Children's Education in Kuttab Permata Quran Kartasura

Putri Irma Solikhah, Purnomo Purnomo


Ibn Khaldun's thoughts can be used to criticize Islamic educational institutions, which tend not to emphasize independent thinking and broaden the subject of study. Only a little development can be expected from established educational institutions such as schools, madrasas, and Islamic boarding schools (pesantren). Kuttab, as a reborn classical educational institution, has the potential to implement Ibn Khaldun's educational thinking more flexibly because it does not yet have a standardized learning system. This research is qualitative field research in Kuttab Permata Quran. Data related to the implementation of learning in Kuttab Permata Quran is examined from the perspective of Ibn Khaldun's educational concept with a phenomenological approach. The results of this study indicate that education at Kuttab Permata Quran is compatible with Ibn Khaldun's thought in curriculum aspects relevant to the needs of life in society and dignified relations between teachers and students. However, teachers still need to demonstrate a convincing ability to simplify concepts in learning materials.
