      This paper aims at discussing education in remote areas of some places in South Sumatra based on expectation and facts. Though the nine-year compulsory basic education has been implemented for the whole people of Indonesia, it is common to find children aging between 6 and 16 years fail in completing their school because of certain reasons. Besides, one of the attempts of the government to improve the quality of education is to increase the minimum standard requirement for both elementary and secondary school graduates from year to year, and the issue of good quality of education has been worldwide among educators, but the result is sometimes still unsatisfactory. For instance, the average of English grade of national examination in some schools is high, while that of other schools is low and even far from a minimum standard requirement. The failure of basic education completion and less satisfactory result of education presumably appear because there are imbalances in education found in some schools especially in remote areas. Human resources, infrastructures, facilities and environment are essential to be discussed as some of the major factors of the imbalance in education which later might influence the quality of education
