|Shaping the character of education|
Education is the process of humanizing mankind. Picture of man to be achieved is a man of character, morals, as human beings and useful to others (Driyarkara). However, in reality the process of humanizing this man still has not materialized because of the imbalance in the process due to system errors are applied. Finally there inequality in the education process that produces the socialization process is not perfect.
Education systems in developing countries-including in our country-are still very consumptive and adaptive with developed countries. In the developing countries like Indonesia, now all people regardless of class or position considered as if everything in the developed countries should be followed and applied in our country so that we can survive, so did the education system. Eventually all of the system tends to emphasize the development of technology and intelligence without promoting overall human potential. As a result, the output of the system it spawns a greedy man, all the methods and follow the hedonistic lifestyle and almost instantaneous.
When this happens, in the midst of growing globalization, we will recall that Darwin's theory of natural selection can only adapt and master the environment was going to exist in the world.

Essence and interpretation of these three concepts have now been abandoned.
This is a problem that has yet to be answered. Factor of importance is our lifestyle accommodating to the developed countries and the ruling was a decisive policy and process. Education we are still driven by certain people who have not moved to realize the real essence of education, but still carry a personal idealism respectively.

Consistent character education will be a bright spot in the center of the model and our education system is being aggressively build academic and technological achievements, but gradually left the nation's character and self-image of our country.
