Learning Character Education From Football

Character education is not something lofty or difficult. Character education is already everywhere. Already exists in the family, social environment, schools, entertainment and more. But this time we will learn something important about education core character of football.

Yeah, why football because of the condition or examples would be very easy in the analogy (equated) with the condition and how to educate the characters in the school and home. Basically the character education is to provide the rules of life and social environment accompanied with consequences applicable therein. Then the relationship with football? Easily, the applicable rules of soccer are very raw and clear. There are rules and consequences. If the violation was a yellow card (warning), red cards (out of the game), free kick, penalty, corner kick, even financial penalties for players and teams. Even more “sadistic” again if the team had to go down the caste to a lower league.

As a lover of football, I am very pleased and repeatedly used this example to teachers and parents who want to know about how to educate a child character using this example. A child needs to develop a real understanding of how the world works, learn the “rules of the game” all aspects that exist in this world and “live” in this world. Well, the problem child at birth he did not have a “social concept” in his head, so children need to know how the rules – the rules that exist in this world. This Character Education, easy right?

In order not to hit yellow card, do not be violated. If you violate again yes red card. So many of the football players when the team upset opponents always try to maintain the attitude of trying to respect the referee and keep it off steam issued. Yes this is the human world, sometimes there is not yet an appropriate and necessary rules to make everything orderly.

In the game of football core players in a match is the referee. Banyangkan if the play is not there then it is most likely not referee a football match again we see. But the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) on the football field, the alias-free field fight football. Same in the world of education in the schools there perlau figure whose role as referee in a football game to be “keepers” rule at school. And often it is the weakness, the referee at the school was not functioning properly. Just as at home, parents are less able to referee properly. So that education can be run with less character maximum.

We need to know all, character education is not merely impart knowledge but merely to establish rules and consequences within the school and at home. In school rules such as: children do not bring textbooks consequently obtain additional duty. It must be clear and consistent, and communicated to all parties including parents.

Next, it should be a responsible person in the field of character education is a person who has an interest, in the world of “humanity” is not necessarily a psychologist. Why because it is related to the set rules and consequences for students. Of course, these rules should be organized according to rank and age and scale of violations. For example: child punishment intentionally steal or destroy school property would have been different with a child who forgot to bring stationery, or do not take notes.

Well, the important thing for all of us that character education is not something complicated. It’s very easy and there are many examples around us, we want to stay or not. Need an attempt to implement this, we need to know and learn about the ins and outs of the human and how to overcome them. Because humans are born with no manual book of his, such as Black Berry that we buy and have included manual book her and no clue how to use it.

Getting Started In Character Education

Commitment is the first step if you want to have a good character, but what kind of commitment it takes to succeed in character education? That is the discipline of education character itself. This time we will discuss from the point of view of the school.

One time I had a chance to present about character education and its impact on teachers and school employees. My colleague accidentally setting in order to be coherent with the school environment education issues that will be echoed by the character of the school. When I explained about the school rules and classroom rules, the face looks less comfortable, and the response was less than enthusiastic, as well as face a heavy burden to address the implementation of character education.

And in the middle of my show to explain that the school does not need to rush into a major reshuffle in the rules of the school. I really understand the burden of teachers in teaching and administrative activities, perform an important step by step in the implementation of existing commitments and keep discipline as a driving force of character education itself, that’s the key. Discipline, discipline and discipline.

Overview I described the discipline of people living in Indonesia with two seasons, different countries with four seasons of life. Toughness, fighting spirit and initiative are also different. We in Indonesia is a challenge in its natural territory quite a bit compared to those living in the four seasons. Since one of the factors that we need to learn more discipline for a better life. Discipline is very close to success, even discipline in one package with no success. Whatever success is to be achieved in the discipline is the basis. Even the size of the discipline has been formulated in detail by Malcolm Gladwell in his book outlier, that it took 10,000 hours to become a master of discipline in any field. Singers, athletes, business professionals who have successfully passed the 10,000 hours.

Character education likely will never actually touched when there is only limited understanding of the character or nature of information only without any action. Today in print, electronic and internet media much preaching about buying and selling a key test cases, cheating cheating, plagiarism, and even cases of crimes committed by the student, it all shows that the realizable value of the real character of the nation did not materialize. This phenomenon occurs due to the low quality of education.

Factors affecting among other things:

  1. Lack of infrastructure
  2. The low quality of teachers
  3. Lack of education equity opportunities
  4. The low relevance of education to the needs of
  5. Vision and morality educators and students of low
  6. The high cost of education It is a serious problem in a country

Higher education budget is no guarantee of good infrastructure and the cost of education affordable, the cause is clear morality that emphasizes community groups, private kepetingan and got the exact circumstances.

The six barriers can only be lost if the noble values ??and character education actually realized. To get maximum results related to the above problems would need a breakthrough in the world of education to create a character and a young high berprestas. To achieve this it is necessary innovation and the development of value discipline and commitment from each school in order to study the character can move on. The impact of character education can build an individual to identify himself and was able to set a goal of education.

There are three elements that must go synergistic education that families, schools and communities. Among children with the method is expected to grow according nature (naturelijke groei) and the state of their own culture (Cultuur historical). So there are three things that should and need to be developed in order to build character education is to build a culture that students are always ready for change in an increasingly competitive considering that culture is continuous, convergent and concentric. “Building a culture so that students are always ready for change in an increasingly competitive” means necessary attitude and discipline committed to the implementation of character education in itself, and all of these can be started from all of us.
