One of the main obstacles in the distribution of education in Indonesia is the provision of school building infrastructure that certainly requires a high cost both in terms of raw materials plus accessibility to mobilize raw materials for the construction of school buildings. On the other hand, houses of worship can be found very easily up to remote villages. This study aims to determine the response of the community, community leaders, and responses from government agencies related to the concept of equal distribution of education facilities in cooperation with houses of worship. Based on BPS data elementary schools are not found in every village, whereas in most of the villages there are one or more houses of worship. The method used in this study is direct observation, in-depth interviews with key informants (Village Heads and Religious Leaders), and expert interviews with government service agencies (Education Offices and Religious Departments) in the study area. The approach used in this study is a qualitative approach with Prospect Theory as the conceptual framework. The overall results showed that basically, the people have no objection TOT the concept. However, there are obstacles and potential in implementing the concept.
