    School based Education Character

    • To develop the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral aspects of their character, students need many and varied opportunities to grapple with real-life challenges.
    • Through repeated experiences and reflection, student develop appreciation for and commitment to acting on their ethical and performance values.
    • Student learn to care about core values by developing empathy skills, forming caring relationships, developing good work habits, taking on meaningful responsibilities, helping to create community, and reflecting in life experience.
    • They develop an increasingly refined understanding of the core ethical and performance values, a deeper commitment to living according to those values, and stronger capacity and tendency to behave in accordance with them.
    • To develop the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral aspects of their character, students need many and varied opportunities to grapple with real-life challenges.
    • Through repeated experiences and reflection, students develop appreciation for and commitment to acting on their ethical and performance values.

    The Role of School Teacher
    • Students are better able to do their best work and gain greater autonomy, competence, and self-confidence when teachers promote moral and performance values such as academic integrity, intellectual curiosity, critical thinking and diligence.
    • Teachers should highlight models of excellence and ethics and promote social-emotional skills such as self awareness and self-management and ethical decision-making.

    Basic Principles
    • Wisdom is good judgment that enables us to make reasoned decisions that are both good for us and good for others.
    • Justice means respecting the right of all persons, including ourselves, it includes honesty, respect, responsibility and tolerance.
    • Love is the willingness to sacrificefor the sake of other -  empathy, compassion, kindness, generosity, service, loyalty, patriotism, and forgiveness.
    • Intergrity is adhering to moral principle, keeping our word, and standing up for what we believe. Integrity is different from honesty, which tells the truth to others, integrity is telling the truth to onself.
    • Positive hardwork - enthusiasm, flexibility, initiative, diligence, goal-setting, and sense of humor.

    Education for Sustainable Development
    • Education plays crucial role for (a) poverty reduction, (b) health, and (c) environmental sustainability.
    • The biggest challenge is how to ensure that the future generation are truly care on environment  sustainability and maintain strong character.

    "If wealth is lost, nothing is lost.
    If health is lost, something is
    lost. But, if character is lost,
    everything is lost."

      4th speaker oleh Dra. Suzy S. Azeharie, M.A., M.Phil (Dosen Fakultas Ilmu Komunikasi Universitas Tarumanagara). Beliau mempresentasikan tentang :

      Underlining the Construction of
      Leadership Through Gender

      A leader means

                             Someone who leads

      Peter F Drucker
      • There is no a good country or bad country
      • Only a good leader or a bad leader

      • Tend to think straight away that it is "man"
      • Very unlikely we refer the word to a woman

      Can be explained from different perspectives
      • Religion
      • It is disseminate from one generation to other
      • They syncretism between culture and religion become apparent in some traditional wedding ceremony

      Stepping on egg
      • Symbol of what?
      • Implies of?

      The Goverment rules and policies
      • Marriage Law Number 1/1974
      • "Women Organization"
      • The strengthen of what?


      The Impact
      • The impact can be seen from the data followed:
        • Every year 15.000 mother died when delivering babies
        • Indonesian MMR is the highest --> 228/100.000

      It has some to do with the destiny discourse
      • What is woman's destiny?
      • And what is man's destiny?

      • Not more than 18% women are MP's
      • Sweden ---> 42%
      • The Netherlands ---> 36%

      How are we going to achieve the development growth?

      While in fact :
      • Half of the country's population is left behind?
      • 39% of women do not graduate from elementary school
      • 13% graduate from Junior High
      • 51% works in informal sector

      The desconstraction 
      • The society is patriarch
      • Very rigid in dividing public and domestic domain
      • Thus women are positioned not as a leader therefore away from the temptation of corruption ---> many of the strategic position is given to men

      UNDP research
      • To reform bureaucratic structure in Peru, would needed 30% of women in bureucratic structure. They are expected to stand up and fight against corruption
