A Philosophical Perspective on the Purpose of Education in Indonesia

Book Title: Comparative and Decolonial Studies in Philosophy of Education

Abstract/Notes: This chapter will look at the purpose of education in the context of Indonesia’s past and present. I will draw on the philosophy of Ki Hajar Dewantara (1889–1959), who is regarded as the father of Indonesian education. In conceptualising education, he was influenced by his upbringing, local culture, and international influences from various educators and philosophers such as Rabindranath Tagore, Maria Montessori, and Friedrich Fröbel. This chapter is particularly timely because the Indonesian government has started to critically re-examine two of the educational concepts proposed by Dewantara, which are “pendidikan karakter” (character education) and “merdeka belajar” (independent learning). The chapter will start with a discussion on the purpose of education before introducing Dewantara and his background. I will then offer two comparisons; First, between Dewantara’s purpose of education and the aims of Dutch schools during the colonial period in Indonesia, highlighting the importance of imparting local wisdom and values in Dewantara’s school which were ignored by the colonial schools. Second, between Dewantara’s purpose of education and the current government’s policies. By doing so, I will highlight the different purposes articulated for education in various contexts, from the colonial era to present-day Indonesia. The conclusion of this chapter is that there have been profound changes to the very purpose of education in Indonesia. Nevertheless, Dewantara’s philosophy is still very much relevant today and thus, the Indonesian government should revisit its conceptualisation of the foundations of education. Dewantara’s thought is also likely to see increased interest in other countries due to a growing global demand for awareness of non-Western educational philosophies.

Abstract/Notes: This article examines the effects of Montessori music-movement activities on the development of the rhythmic abilities of 59 children from Montessori preschools, aged between 3 and 6 years. Children were deployed into two experimental groups (EG 1 (n = 20) & EG 2 (n = 22)) and a control group (CG) (n = 17). Our intervention consisted of introducing 15 to 20 min of unstructured movement time, either accompanied by a piano (EG 1) or recording (EG 2), three times a week for four months, whereas the control group carried on the usual Montessori program. We used a quasi-experimental nonequivalent groups design with pretest–posttest. Three tests for measuring rhythmic abilities were used: auditory discrimination of the rhythmic patterns, imitation of spoken rhythmic phrases, and determining the synchronization of movement with the rhythm of the music. The interventions had a positive effect on the development of the rhythmic abilities of children included in the study. The most significant effect was noticed in EG 1, while no effect of non-activity was detected in the control group.

Abstract/Notes: Diese Arbeit versucht, den Betrachtungen und Aspekten, die das Kind in unserer Gesellschaft ausgehend vom Standpunkt Montessoris beleuchten, nachzugehen, wobei ich die Gemeinsamkeiten in den Montessoris und Millers pädagogischen Ansätzen feststelle. Laut Montessori und Miller ist das Kind ist als gleichwertiger Mensch anzuerkennen, und die Seele des Kindes erfordert eine besondere Feinfühligkeit des Erwachsenen für seine Bedürfnisse her. Es ist wichtig, die Kinder in ihren Fähigkeiten bestmöglich zu fördern. Im Bezug auf das pädagogische Spannungsverhältnis von Selbständigkeit und Zwang beschäftige ich mich mit dem Widerspruch von pädagogischer Norm und Funktion aus der Sicht der Kältestudien von Gruschka. Die Kältestudien verweisen auf die von den einzelnen Menschen unaufhebbar erfahrenen Widersprüche von der Norm der sozialen Allgemeinheit von Bildung und der Selektionsfunktion von den pädagogischen Institutionen. Schließlich sollten die gesellschaftlichen Strukturen, die Kälte als gesellschaftlich akzeptiertes Verhalten verursachen, bewusst wahrgenommen und reflektiert werden. Dafür ist es nötig, den Kindern so viel wie möglich Freiheitsspielraum zu geben, in der sie Erfahrungsmöglichkeiten haben. Zudem ist Schulbildung mit dem Leben der Kinder zusammenzubringen. den Kindern so viel wie möglich Freiheitsspielraum zu geben, in der sie Erfahrungsmöglichkeiten haben.

[This work attempts to trace the considerations and aspects that illuminate the child in our society from the Montessori point of view, noting the similarities in the Montessori and Miller's pedagogical approaches. According to Montessori and Miller, the child is to be recognized as an equal human being, and the child's soul requires a special sensitivity on the part of the adult for its needs. It is important to support the children in their abilities in the best possible way. In relation to the pedagogical tension between independence and coercion, I deal with the contradiction between pedagogical norm and function from the point of view of Gruschka's cold studies. The cold studies point to the irreconcilable contradictions experienced by individuals between the norm of the social generality of education and the selection function of educational institutions. Finally, the social structures that cause cold as socially accepted behavior should be consciously perceived and reflected upon. For this it is necessary to give the children as much freedom as possible in which they have opportunities for experience. In addition, school education must be combined with the life of the children. to give the children as much freedom as possible in which they have opportunities for experience.

Abstract/Notes: This study investigated the effects of AMSP(American Montessori Society) on young children's creativity and intelligence according to the learning term.The questions for research were as follows:1. What is the effect of AMSP on young children's creativity according to the learning term?2. What is the effect of AMSP on young children's intelligence according to the learning term? The subjects of this study were 57 aged five-old children at H kindergarten in J. City. They were classified to three groups according to learning term of AMSP.The data were collected using the General Creativity Test for Children(Chon, kyoung-won, 2000), the Revised Korean Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (Park, kwang-bae 1995), and analysed by ANCOVA, the Scheffe test with SPSS 11.0 Program.The results of this study are summarized as follows:1. The longer the learning term was, the more AMSP improved young children's creativity significantly. The longer the learning term was, the more AMSP improved young children's creativity significantly. 2.The longer the learning term was, the more AMSP improved young children's intelligence significantly. The longer the learning term was, the more AMSP improved young children's intelligence significantly. / 본 연구는 AMSP가 유아의 창의성과 지능에 미치는 영향에 있어 수업연한에 따른 차이를 알아본 것으로, AMSP의 수업연한에 따라 구분된 1년차 집단, 2년차 집단, 3년차 집단 각 19명씩 만 5세 유아 총 57명을 대상으로 실시하였다. 전경원(2000)의 창의성 검사와 박혜원곽금주박광배(1996) 등이 개발한 한국형WPPSI(K-WPPIS)를 실시한 결과, AMSP의 수업연한이 높을수록 유아의 창의성과 지능발달에 전반적으로 더 큰 효과를 나타냈다. 이에 AMSP가 유아의 창의성과 지능발달을 돕는 하나의 효과적인 접근방안일 뿐만 아니라 유치원의 3년 교육 기간에 AMSP를 제공받는 것이 유아의 창의성과 지능발달에 더 효과적임을 시사해준다고 하겠다.

The Future of Public Education: A Free Appropriate Public Education for All Students
Available from: MINDS@UW River Falls
Educational change, Public schools
Abstract/Notes: This paper examines the challenges facing the public school system as it attempts to live up to the promise to provide a “free appropriate public education” to all of its students. The funding mechanism for public schools, with its reliance on community funding, lends itself to inequities. The lack of an effective response to the rising challenge of mental health issues, the unwillingness to respond to the changing skill demands of the workforce by revising curriculum and the ineffectiveness of efforts to close the achievement gap have all led the public to question whether or not they are receiving an “appropriate” education. The response increasingly has been to look for a better educational alternative elsewhere, in charter schools. The effect of charter schools overall has been to weaken public schools’ abilities to provide a quality education for each and every student. An analysis of each of these challenges and possible responses will provide a possible road map for traditional public education to do a better job of living up to its mandate, to “promote the general welfare”.

Abstract/Notes: Soon after No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation was signed into law in the U.S. (2002), an increasing emphasis in schools on high-stakes testing performance resulted in a decrease in recess and movement time, including physical education for Elementary students (Ohanian, 2002). Since the hazard of unmonitored television time was first explored by Marie Winn in The Plug-In Drug (1977, revised 2002), the allure of screens too early and too often has only become an increasing challenge for both parents and educators. Providing dedicated time for movement and nature are important general guidelines for parents and educators to remember, but there are also classroom-based tools available that teachers can implement into the school day to promote sensory health and positive behaviors in their students. Some individual tools that could be set up in the classroom to be utilized by students, perhaps even as a classroom work or on a "sensory shelf," might include the following: * Hand-size fidgets and squeeze balls of varying textures and firmness levels; * Headphones (noise-canceling, silent or with music); * Lap weights; * Fine-motor activities that allow for accommodations and sensory variety (e.g., sensory table, Practical Life, and art works); * Colored glasses (to mute visual input or block flickering of fluorescent lights); * Stretch/resistance bands; * Massage balls or a foam roller; * Chewing tools (pencil toppers, pendants, gum, etc.).

Abstract/Notes: Article text: The Springer Memorial Secondary School was a hive of activity and nervous excitement as students, stationery in hand, made their way into the school to sit the Barbados Secondary School Entrance Examination (BSSEE) on Tuesday. Nervous parents were left on the outside of the school grounds standing and awaiting the return of their child or ward upon completion of the two-part 11-Plus examination, consisting of English and Mathematics. Mitchelle Maxwell, Deputy Principal of the Springer Memorial Secondary School, told the media, “We have 252 students comprising Blackman and Gollop Primary, Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary, Belmont Primary, St. Giles Primary and a few students from various schools such as St. Angela’s Primary, Happy Vale Montessori Primary School, registered to take the Barbados Secondary School Examination. “Preparations were put in place from Friday ensuring the rooms were ready, and security checks were done this morning at 6:30 a.m. prior to the exam. “We expect to have a smooth operation as it pertains to the examination this morning, which is broken up into two – Essay and Grammar, and Mathematics.” Parent, Troy Johnson, was one of the many parents and guardians on the outside of the Springer Memorial school as he waited on daughter, Zaria Johnson. He told The Barbados Advocate, “I am more nervous than my daughter. During the course of the time it was okay, but this morning the flutters have it. “She has been going to lessons and doing extra work in between, so hopefully she will do well to pass for her first choice Springer Memorial.” Calvin Williams was amongst the parents standing outside the gate. He noted, “I was not worried by the threatened actions of the Barbados Union of Teachers affecting the 11-Plus children. I was more worried of after the 11-Plus and the correction of the papers and the possibility of late results, but other than that I was not worried about the 11-Plus. “In terms of my daughter, I am very confident she will do well. Whatever she does will be good for me. She has already made me proud in NAPSAC and I am grateful for whatever she does. At present she attends the St. Giles Primary and I must commend her teacher, Mr. Stoute, for his passionate attitude in teaching the students, my daughter included. The students in his class also have great respect for him and they tend to do well during the term. I have no doubt she and the other St. Giles students will do good.” After the first part of the exam was finished, students came out smiling as they related to parents and guardians their prowess in the English section of the exam. However, it was the Mathematics paper which reduced many to tears upon leaving the exam room, running into the arms of their parents, tears streaming down their faces. Lisa Wiles, a student of Charles F. Broome Memorial, told The Barbados Advocate, “2016 paper was harder than 2015 paper. The Composition and Grammar was easy, but Section Two and Three of the Mathematics paper was hard. I am relieved the exam is over and I hope I pass for my first choice of Queen’s College.” Teacher John Gittens of Charles F. Broome Memorial noted, “I am very confident my students did well. Some of them said Section Three of the Mathematics paper was challenging, but my children were well prepared. Children at Charles F. Broome are generally well prepared. It is concerning a lot are in tears about the Mathematics paper, but generally we will do well. I do not like to see them crying because I like them to be able to conquer challenges. The fact there are tears means there are sums or one particular sum that was challenging, but I always tell them there are things you may not be comfortable with, but just apply yourself to it because that is just fear. “Now the exam is finished, some of the students will be taken to Divi Southwinds for a treat arranged by their parents where they can relax and have fun. The next day at school, we will review the exam papers with them and show them where they went wrong so they can apply it later on.”

Meeting Students' Needs in the Multiage Group Environment. E.S.E.A. Title IV-C. Final Evaluation Report, 1979-1980.
Abstract/Notes: The purpose of the Meeting Students' Needs in the Multiage Group Environment (MSN) program was to provide an instructional system to meet the needs of elementary school students of differing achievement, age, and grade level who are in the same classroom. The program, for kindergarten through grade six, was characterized by an innovative management system, a procedure for continuous assessment of educational needs and achievement, an emphasis on the development of independent behavior, and the encouragement of parent and community involvement. MSN was evaluated through a procedure that called for the comparison of intended outcomes to actual outcomes. Findings from standardized tests of achievement indicated that students in grades one through four increased their percentile ranks in reading or mathematics or both. Similar gains were not observed for grades five and six. Two project-designed instruments developed to measure independence, self-reliance, and responsibility did not

Attitudes toward Multiple Aged Classrooms of Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Grade Students
Available from: ERIC
Abstract/Notes: This study investigated students' attitudes toward multi-age classrooms, specifically examining differences in attitudes based on gender and grade level. The Multiage Attitude Survey was administered at the end of the school year to students in two multi-age classrooms: one classroom with 11 third-grade and 10 fourth-grade students, the other with 11 fifth-grade and 13 sixth-grade students. Results revealed no significant difference in attitudes based on gender. However, differences were found in grade level attitudes. Correlations between grade level and negative attitudes toward multi-age classrooms indicated that the higher grade-level students (fourth graders and sixth graders) had more negative attitudes toward the multiple groupings than did younger students in each classroom.

Fourth Annual National Create the Quality Schools Conference, April 6, 1995, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Abstract/Notes: This paper presents findings of the longitudinal School Success Study (SSS), which is being conducted to determine the academic and social effects of nongraded (multiage, continuous progress) programs on Tennessee elementary school students. Covering the years 1993-99, the research seeks to identify successful school practices in both nongraded and graded programs. The study includes elementary-age students (K-4) from seven Tennessee schools that are implementing nongraded programs (n=1,500), three of which also have students in traditional classes (n=750), and five comparison schools in which all students are enrolled in single-grade classes. Academic achievement is measured by the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) and the Tennessee Holistic Writing Assessment. Social development (academic self-concept) is measured using the Self-Concept and Motivation Inventory (SCAMIN). A one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) indicates that students from nongraded classes during.
