“Teacher should be able to design the learning process, carry it out effectively and evaluating the process itself. They are expected to have a strengthened-character to improve the educational quality and human resource development,” she said.
Lastly, Chairman of Paguyuban Pasundan Prof. Dr. H. M. Didi Turmudzi, M.Si gave his advices about religion, culture and education. They are important, considering the massive culture interaction and value shifting, as well as people’s attitude and behaviour changing.
“It is the paradox which leads to the social problem, such as inequality in economic life, rampant crime, authoritarian attitude, intolerance, lack of political ethics and greed. In addition, capitalism, conservatism, neo-liberalism and other invisible ideologies make the educational system in Indonesia separated from moral and cultural aspects,” he explained.
Therefore, responses from the educational field are necessarily needed, including by re-arranging the curriculum, strengthening the local moral and culture, developing information technology and evaluation system of quality assurance as the responses of global reality.
“Education should also be more sensitive to the social condition and reality. Values of Pancasila need to be strengthened to filter the negative ideology which is currently happening and attacking in social media,” he concluded. (Reta)*
