Abstract

Indonesian formal education‟s orientation has been focused on the development of science and technology (hard skills), therefore, it is weak in developing moral and spiritual components (soft skills). This, inevitably, is linked with the multi-dimensional crisis that we experience today – widely assumed as the impact of the economic crisis. As an effort to deal with the crisis, education in Indonesia has been focused to develop science and technology, which are considered as capitals for the economic development. Unfortunately, this imbalanced practice in education has created another crisis instead, i.e. the value crisis. To strengthen the education of value or character, innovation is needed in the practice of education, especially in early age education, because education in this age is the foundation for character development in the later ages. Raudhatul Athfal Dharma Wanita Persatuan (RA-DWP) is a pre-school educational institution which is used as one of the educational laboratories for students of Tarbiyah Sciences Faculty and Teacher Training Faculty, „Sunan Kalijaga‟ State Islamic University, Indonesia, to conduct their apprenticeship program. The changes that take place in this institution will have a vast impact, as vast as the impact experienced by the faculty students who study here.This research aims to design a model of education at RA-DWP. The research method chosen is Research and Development (R&D), which involves the following steps: first, conduct a need assessment, after that, dig the „lesson learned‟ model from Japan, and then design a model which is appropriate for the needs, the proposed models are validated by experts and practitioners to come up with the most suitable one. Japan is chosen as a reference because it is well known as a country which has successfully developed character education. The model developed includes a philosophical basis, a model concept and an operational model.The „need assessment‟ study results show that RA-DWP needs to strengthen the vision of character education, both in concept and implementation. Therefore, the „lesson learned‟ from Japan is very relevant to redesign the said educational model. After conducting several research steps and adopting the theory of value education from Lickona, the ABK (Attitude Before Knowledge) model is established. This model demands three important aspects: exemplary conduct by teachers and parents, development of conducive school culture, and close cooperation between the school and all other stakeholders. With this ABK model, students will be able to enter the global world with sufficient knowledge and skills, and will have the characteristics of civilized citizens.
