Sebuah pengalaman pribadi, yang tidak pernah terbayangkan sebelumnya. Dunia pendidikan dengan segala dinamikanya, menyimpan beribu-ribu tantangan yang harus dihadapi. Terkadang ada rasa khawatir, rasa tidak mampu hingga kesulitan beradaptasi dengan dunia yang menuntut keahlian.

Bagi seorang fresh graduate seperti saya, mungkin juga dialami oleh teman-teman sekalian yang masih dibangku kuliah, dunia pendidikan yang sesungguhnya hanyalah dalam angan-angan, atau bahkan masih diluar angan-angan. Bagi sebagian fresh graduate, berkecipung dalam dunia pendidikan (baca: praktisi pendidikan) adalah sebuah hal yang sulit, apalagi memiliki penyakit pesimis, merasa tidak mampu bahkan merasa tidak berguna. Keadaan inilah yang membuat seorang fresh graduate tidak mengenal lagi akan idealis keilmuan atau latar belakang pendidikan. Sehingga tidak heran jika seorang sarjana pendidikan bahasa inggris, bekerja sebagai tukang ojek.

Dinamika dunia pendidikan, memang penuh dengan dinamika. Ada yang buruntung sukses mencetak output seperti apa yang diharapkan, ada pula yang buntung. Dunia pendidikan adalah dunia idealis, yang mengajarkan bagaimana dunia seharusnya, berbeda dengan dunia kerja yakni dunia pragmatis. Pragmatis berarti melakukan sesuatu secara praktis, dalam bahasa lain disebut sebagai efektif dan efisien.

Seringkali pragmatis menerobos nilai-nilai norma dan budaya yang ada. Sehingga terkadang dianggap sebagai sebuah bentuk penghalalan segala cara. Dan yang patut kita pertanyakan kembali adalah kebermanfaatan itu untuk siapa. Yang terjadi justru kebermanfaatan untuk diri sendiri pragmatis-egois.

Nah, disinilah kita seharusnya bisa membedakan antara dunia pendidikan dan dunia kerja, yang akhir-akhir ini oleh sebagian praktisi pendidikan diselewengkan makna esensial pendidikan. Dunia pendidikan dijadikan sebagai dunia pragmatis. Pendek kata, dunia pendidikan dijadikan lahan kerja oleh praktisi pendidikan.

Hal ini disebabkan oleh adanya tuntutan untuk menyediakan output yang berkualitas. Lalu, apa indikator dari kualitas itu sendiri? Kebanyakan masyarakat mendefinisikan berkualitas sebagai manusia yang sesuai dengan kebutuhan masyarakat. Jika demikian, masyarakat dididik untuk menjadi individu yang siap dimanfaatkan oleh pasar.

Tuntutan ini bukan hanya berasal dari pengguna sumber daya yang bersangkutan, tetapi juga dari masyarakat sendiri. Dengan kata lain masyarakat semakin menuntut agar intitusi semakin pragmatis.

Disinilah pengelola intitusi dihadapkan pada sebuah dilematis. Mereka berada ditengah keputusan untuk menentukan mana yang lebih utama; ilmu yang sifatnya praktik atau justru yang sifatnya esensial kebenaran.
