Abstract

An old Latin saying says non scholae sed vitae discimus which means we do not study for the sake of academic matters but for life. Therefore the ultimate aim of education is that someone can live well, or can be a good citizen who is ready to bring about the reform of the social order as the Reconstructionists say. People sometimes use objective orientated curriculum as the implication of the recontructionism. However, in practice the objective here is simply interpreted as passing final passing grades, especially of the national exam. Therefore, the teaching learning practices always refer to final exam orientation activities. Consequently, competence achievement is not the priority in education and education cannot change someone’s behavior as proposed by recontructionism. This paper is aimed to review the use of national exams to measure the success of education instead of measuring the improvement of students’ cultural capital. Some research on cultural capital which findings say that it influences the success of study will be the basis of the discussion. As we know, those who have better cultural capital will achieve educational capital better. Those who have good cultural capital has good habitus where the act or behavior comes from. Improving one’s cultural capital will improve one’s habitus which will lead towards the improvement of students’ success of education. Keywords: cultural capital, national exam, habitus, reconstructionism
