Abstract


Today's education has been in the spotlight amid various circles' perspectives, because the main function of education is to shape smart and noble characters of individuals. Education no longer focuses on building the strong character of younger generations. There are many problems that closely relate to the characters of young generations such as drug abuses, disaster prevention cases among school children, elementary school children have already been smokers, drugs users, and sexually victimized, crime, acts of violence such as persecution, brawl,sheep fighting and so forth. They become indicators of something wrong happening in the world of education. This phenomenon is an integral part of cultural capital revitalization as to strengthen the basic character of language used by Ki Hadjar Dewantara, our founding father of national education, in terms of how education is still relevant to people and our nation in the era ofspecial character building of the nation. It is necessary to realize that Ki Hadjar Dewantara's insights become meaningful because by mastering them, we know more about foreign theories about education. Why do we prefer to study Ki Hadjar Dewantara's principles? The reason is that Ki Hadjar Dewantara is a figure of pride of Indonesia as anation in which diversity in building the character of our nation is strongly grounded or rooted in cultures throughout the Indonesian archipelago, and some of his principles are Tutwuri Handayani, Pancadharma, Among,based on Trikon tenets  (continuity, convergence, and concentricity), "Tripusat" Education (family, school,community), and Tringgo (Ngerti, Ngroso, Nglakoni).
