Challenges in the Implementation of Character Education at School

Challenges in the Implementation of Character Education at School.
This article discusses challenges in character education at school by integrating it
into every lesson. The integrated character education in every lesson in every level
of education can be implemented in the instructional materials, processes, and
learning evaluation. During the implementation, the selection and synchronization
of materials and types of characters to be developed are required in order to
prevent the discrepancy or redundancy. In integrated character education, there are
internal and external changes. The former come from the curriculum, mindset,
teachers, principal, or even bureaucracy. The latter mainly come from the growth
and advance of the information technology which can be directly accessed by the
students. Due to all of those challenges, two approaches to facing them can be
taken. The internal approach can be in the form of improving the understanding of
character education by conducting a training/workshop, sharing ideas with others,
and synchronizing the policy in education. The external approach can be adopted
by placing character education experts in the regulation sector and the mass-media
supervisory board in general.
