KH Dewantara prioritizes education on the ability to think freely, with the result that students can overcome their challenges. KH Dewantara's educational views became the basis for national education in the Republic of Indonesia. "Paguron" is a national education concept created by KH Dewantara according to the personality of the nation, with low cost and excellent results. Globalization has shifted the goal of education towards the mastery of knowledge, leading to the emergence of many elite schools based on religion and international schools. Recent findings show that the cost of education is increasing every year. This paper aims to explore the commercialization of education in Indonesia through a systematic literature review of previous research and media coverage. The author suggests overcoming the commercialization of education through an educational intervention to set a maximum limit for private school fees by the government. This is intended to ensure that access to education is available to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay.
