Ideally, education is a conscious effort to prepare students through counseling, teaching and or training for their role in the future. The young generation is the investment of human resources for the vanguard of national defense and as citizens form of existence of the prerequisites.
If traced carefully over the appropriate sentence in accordance with the implication of RI Act No.2 of 1989 relating to the National Education System. Therefore, education is a matter that should not be underestimated because the education will be formed Indonesian men who may be responsible both for himself (internal) as well as to others (external).
Education also varied nature, which among others can be formal, informal, and non-formal education. Formal education can be seen on a number of schools that are officially planned and established by the government, for example such as elementary, junior high, high school and higher education and equal, which all are official.
The informal education that is we can see in real life in the family, such as a father told to learn to their children, indirectly we can say this as a process of informal educational stimulation or in other words is called semi-formal education.
While the latter is called education in non-formal, which is an educational process that most of the activities of the learning process and lead to skills guidance to be gained by the participants after they have educated students from the institution or the institution, for example we can see in courses, let alone a computer course where participants are given the knowledge that qualified students in theory to real applications in practice.
Education in our country by and large aimed at realizing the noble ideals that have been planned and launched by the predecessors of our country, among which seeks to educate the nation’s life in a society, nation and state for the sake of Indonesian society to realize the full, fair and prosperous. This is just a handful of concepts from a myriad of ideals that are embedded expectations of our national education goals.
To accomplished mission and vision that has been decanted, the government made a variety of ways and means to make it happen, among which the government made various processes taking place in education, especially education in schools and the like that can be done through guidance and learning process in it and the process education that can be done outside school (informal and non-formal education such as in family, community, courses, and others).
In a chance interview with one senior high school students in the district municipality of Bandung, the information shows that the learning activities carried out as usual in classrooms with each period of time each lesson with the teacher’s role as the primary source of information. However, in practice the process of teaching and learning activities tend to be in one direction, tend to be passive, let alone there is no positive response and feedback from students so it is very difficult to know whether they understand, understand, or not at all about material that has been communicated to him.
This classic stimulus-response learning activities that can be a problem that would be great, and explode like a bomb at a time when we overcome if not immediately. Therefore, we settle the matter must be carefully from various angles. This can be evaluated from factors internal and external students or because of other factors contained in the self-teaching as a major source of the learning process. By addressing the root problem at least we will know estuary problems which makes the process of teaching and learning activities are monotonous, linear, one direction only and tends to be passive to be used as a benchmark of what to do completion.
After the basic root of learning practice methodology decomposes, then the next process of teaching and learning activities can be used to approach the process of teaching and learning activities in both directions. This emphasizes the active role of the students, especially within and generally beyond the process of learning it, whether it be questions even to the disclaimer regarding material presented to these students. It would be a lot of positive things that can be drawn from this two-way learning process than on the negative side. Teachers as much as possible to free the hierarchy ‘teacher-students’ with an egalitarian approach to the transformation of mutual understanding where the ‘shortage’ of learners and then infiltrated through exposure-exposure to information that stimulates arousal stimuli such learners’ learning.
Another thing which support the empowerment of learners achievement that is about the process undertaken in the school guidance whether it comes from the teacher, the class representatives, as well as guidance counseling. Broadly speaking, most of the guidance which the school’s done or carried out is given if a student gets a problem, both academic and non-academic issues, so in this new process is the guidance given by the home room teacher even in school guidance counseling found it. This applies not absolute, meaning that there are many students and female students who on their own accord for guidance in the form of advice or guidance other than teachers, home room until the Guidance and Counselling (BK) to achieve the desired goals and objectives.
Once we see the various arguments of these interviews, a glimmer of conclusions can we draw from a myriad of handcuff-trace problems that almost the educational ideals of both institutional and instructional, that the education process will run successfully if the balance of consciousness to realize national education goals of various parties, in accordance with three-centre (tripusat) education (community, school, family) plus with support from within the individual consciousness itself, so that we can say it as a system to achieve national goals that can not be standing strong on its own .
